‘Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition’ will come out May 9

Team Deep Silver has announced that Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition is coming this May 9, bringing with it not only remastered graphics but RTX too.

Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition will still follow the same story of post-apocalyptia amidst the harsh and dreary Russian winter. Within these horror-filled tunnels of Moscow, players can now enjoy it with full ray-tracing support.

Enhanced Edition will bring RTX features

Metro Exodus is one of the most stellar post-apocalyptic genres of the modern times. The game is often compared to the likes of Fallout, Bioshock, and even Cyberpunk 2077. The game was one of the best offerings for the entire franchise too.

The game is deeply immersive, with Deep Silver making sure to feel every last bit. Within the franchise, this has also served as the first open-world title of the series. It’s every bit as fun as it is, together with a lot of challenges players can get.

The Enhanced Edition is bringing some goodies, including some sick graphical updates. These will include Ray Traced Emissive Lighting, which is a vast improvement for the game.

“Boasting a huge graphical upgrade, including Ray Traced Emissive Lighting – as pioneered in The Two Colonels – throughout the main game, a Field of View slider for the first time in the Metro series and DLSS 2.1 implementation,” said the announcement.

Team Deep Silver releases PC system requirements

Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition will be a great test for some of the best PC rigs out there. As the update is so massive, Team Deep Silver noted that it can’t be delivered in any type of patch. The upgrade will be free for players who already bought a copy.

The specs for the game, however, will be quite hefty. The original Metro Exodus was already chunky to begin with. Furthermore, it’s going to be heftier than ever. Here are the specs you would need.
