Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition now live on PC, 73% scarier than before

Complete Edition hits PS5 and Xbox Series X/S June 18

While perhaps not at the forefront of the first-person adventure genre, Metro Exodus was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most atmospheric games I’d played in recent years. And real scary to boot. That bar is only set to rise, with the launch of Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition.

Now available on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG.com, and the Microsoft Store, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition takes 4A Games’ 2019 post-apocalyptic adventure and gives it a fresh coat of paint for next-gen technology. The new edition includes additional ray-tracing and global illumination effects, improved load times for SSD drives, the implementation of 4K textures, and support for DLSS 2.0 on Nvidia video cards. Best of all, Enhanced Edition arrives as a free update to all Metro Exodus owners.

You can check out a lengthy demo video below to check out the flashy features in action.

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition is also in the works for console platforms, and will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The console editions will feature both aesthetic and technological improvements, as well as the implementation of platform-specific features, for example haptic feedback support on PS5. Again, the update will be released free-of-charge for owners of the original release of Metro Exodus. A new physical release, Metro Exodus Complete Edition, will also include DLC expansions The Two Colonels and Sam’s Story.

If you fancy a miserable jaunt through a Fallout-style universe, packed full of terrifying monsters, scummy humans, and an endless need to scavenge, then it might be more than worth your time to check out Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition on the platform of your choice.

Arachnophobes… maybe sit this one out.
