As for what console players can expect from this new version of Metro Exodus, 4A Games has confirmed that the game will be able to run at 60 frames per second at a 4K resolution with ray tracing active on both platforms. Haptic feedback will also be present specifically on PS5 thanks to the features that the DualSense controller boasts.
When it comes to how you can get Enhanced Edition for yourself, there are a few options. For starters, those that already own Metro Exodus will be able to upgrade to this next-gen version for no additional cost. If you don't have the title, however, and you would like to purchase it, the Enhanced Edition will also now be released physically in a new "Complete Edition" format. This version will include not only the base game, but both addition pieces of DLC that arrived for Metro Exodus in the months after its original launch.

Or will you instead be checking it out for the first time now that it's coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X? Share your thoughts with me either down in the comments or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
