4A Games is developing an enhanced version of its 2019 apocalyptic first-person shooter, Metro Exodus. The developer announced the news in a blog post today, which confirmed that the Enhanced Edition would offer additional ray tracing features (e.g., advanced ray traced reflections) as well as NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 support. What’s really neat is that 4A Games is offering Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition free to all existing Metro Exodus owners on the Epic Games Store, Steam, and GOG.

“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,” 4A Games noted. “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.”

“We have built an all-new Fully Ray Traced Lighting Pipeline that brings a number of optimizations, upgrades, and new features to the Ray Traced Global Illumination and Emissive Lighting that we pioneered with the original release of Metro Exodus, as well as an upgraded implementation of our powerful Temporal Reconstruction technology to further boost resolution, visual detail and performance.”

Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition will be released sometime this spring. You can check out the chart below to get a complete breakdown of its new ray tracing features, which include fully ray traced lighting, next-gen ray tracing and denoising, and per-pixel ray traced global illumination. Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition will also feature a 4K texture pack and the addition of an FOV slider to its main game options.
