Metro Exodus developer 4A Games and publisher Deep Silver today announced Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, an upgraded version of the 2019 title built specifically for high-end PCs capable of using ray-tracing hardware and DLSS 2.0 like the latest Nvidia and AMD GPUs. In other words, expect Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition, which is releasing later this year, to look even better than Metro Exodus did when it launched.
"This upgrade is so extensive, it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec, and we will need to deliver this version 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," the announcement of the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition reads in part. "The PC Enhanced Edition will offer additional Ray Tracing features, including Advanced Ray Traced Reflections and support for DLSS 2.0 on NVIDIA hardware, which offers sharper image details and increased framerates and display resolutions."
