According to 4A Games, the Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition is more than a mere patch to the base game, and described as "an extra entitlement to all existing Metro Exodus PC players".
4A Games is saying it is applying the same philosophy as on Xbox and PlayStation upgrades, which means that the PC Enhanced Edition will be free to all existing Metro Exodus owners on the Epic Games Store, Steam, and GoG.
When it comes to improvements, the game, which looked pretty impressive back when it was launched, now looks even better. Of course, it comes at a price, as it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum requirement.
Compared to the Xbox and Playstation versions of the game, the PC Enhanced Edition will be getting all those improvements from the consoles version as well as advanced ray traced reflections, support for Nvidia DLSS 2.0.
As announced, the Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition will launch on May 6th and will be free for all existing Metro Exodus owners. It will be available on Steam, the Epic Games Store, Good Old Games and the Microsoft Store.
