While waiting for the new generation version which will arrive later on PS5 and Xbox Series, Metro Exodus will be entitled to various improvements on PC. With its stamped update “Enchanced Edition”, the game from 4A Games will be made more beautiful in order to offer PC players the same optimization work as on next-gen. And this is already happening next week.
A date for the PC version
The appointment is given on May 6, 2021, date on which Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition will be available to players. If you already have the post-apocalyptic FPS, be aware that the upgrade will be free. However, the application will be separate, so you will have to download this improved edition again.
Be careful, if you can take advantage of it regardless of your initial platform (GOG, Epic Games Store, Steam and Microsoft Store) and transfer your save, there is one exception: players who have the Microsoft Store version will not be able to keep their save. At least you’ve been warned. It might make you want to start over and rediscover everything.
The list of improvements is long. To our happiness, our colleagues at Digital Foundry have already been able to get their hands on it exclusively and offer us a complete analysis of the changes with a comparison and all that follows. DirectX 12 support, 4K textures, better lighting, reduced loading time, more intense reflections effects, in short, all the improvements to come on new-generation but also two specificities unique to the PC, namely the support of DLSS 2.0 and even more intense reflections with ray-tracing.
