The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of Metro Exodus, officially titled Metro Exodus Complete Edition, will launch on June 18, publisher Deep Silver and developer 4A Games announced. It will be available as a free upgrade to users who own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, as well as via a new physical edition that includes both downloadable content expansions (“The Two Colonels” and “Sam’s Story”).
Additionally, as previously announced, Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition is available now for PC via Steam, the Epic Games Store, GOG, and the Microsoft Store, also as a free upgrade to existing owners.
Here is an overview of each enhanced edition, via Deep Silver:
Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition
Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition offers additional Ray Tracing features including Advanced Ray Traced Reflections and support for the much-requested DLSS 2.0 on NVIDIA hardware, which offers sharper image details and increased framerates and display resolutions. Further collaborating with NVIDIA, this update improves our existing Ray Traced Global Illumination tech innovated with the original release of Metro Exodus to make every light source fully Ray Traced and implements our RT Emissive tech from “The Two Colonels” throughout the game.
This upgrade is so extensive it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec and will be delivered as a separate product – it is not a simple ‘patch’ to the base game – instead it will be offered as an extra entitlement to all existing Metro Exodus PC players.
Metro Exodus Complete Edition
Metro Exodus Complete Edition will run at 4K / 60 frames per second with full Ray Traced lighting throughout on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The base game and DLC expansions will feature both our ground-breaking Ray Traced Global Illumination (RTGI) and the Ray Traced Emissive Lighting techniques pioneered in the original release of Metro Exodus and “The Two Colonels” expansion across all content.
The next gen consoles will benefit from dramatically reduced loading times thanks to the use of their SSD storage optimizations, 4K texture packs, and a range of platform specific features including spatial audio and controller latency improvements on Xbox, and support for the haptic features of the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.
