If you were looking for a reason to play Metro Exodus again, well, here it is. The previously announced PC Enhanced Edition is just around the corner. The developer of Metro Exodus, 4A Games, announced today that the new edition will release worldwide on May 6.

What's New

PC Enhanced Edition completely reworks how ray tracing runs in the game. The update introduces Advanced Ray Traced Reflections and also brings DLSS 2.0 support. That’s not all though as the existing Ray Traced Global Illumination tech has also been drastically improved.

New System Requirements

As it was previously revealed, the Enhanced Edition will require more horsepower than the original version. The developer has released the new system requirements of the game, and oh boy, are they high. You should be good if you were able to grab the latest graphic cards.

This massive visual upgrade to the game is completely free if you own the base game. It doesn’t matter from which digital storefront you purchased the game. As the upgrade is so extensive, the developer has decided to make it optional. You can select which edition of the game you want to purchase. This is good news as not everyone has the hardware that supports ray tracing.

The update is quite massive in size too:

  • Base Game: 72.2 GB
  • The Two Colonels: 1 GB
  • Sam’s Story: 6.4 GB
  • Total: 80 GB
