Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition Next Week

4A Games announces a May 6th release date for the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, saying the ray traced version of the first-person shooter will be available for Windows via the Epic Games Store, GOG.COM, the Microsoft and Steam. For those who already own the original version, the Enhanced Edition is a free upgrade. The post includes a FAQ and this overview:
It 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 Ray Traced Emissive Lighting 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.

This edition of Metro Exodus can only run on Ray Tracing capable hardware; check out our Recommended PC Specifications chart to see what kind of performance you can expect.
