4A Games have revealed their Next-gen upgrade plans for their hit-game Metro Exodus, as well as what the future holds for the highly-successful 'Metro' series.
The year 2020 was very big for the Ukrainian studio 4A Games and for the Metro series. This year, the studio is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of the Metro 2033 game, which set the bar for FPS survival games that only increased with Metro: Last Light and Metro: Exodus games.
4A Games have only words of praise for the new consoles, and they have announced that Metro Exodus will receive enhancements for the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Players can expect the following improvements:
- Faster framerate
- Increased resolution
- Faster load times
- Ray Tracing
So, judging by the Next-gen upgrades so far, it's probably safe to say that the next-gen version of Metro: Exodus will run at 4K and 60 frames per second in 'performance mode' and 4K and 30 frames per second in 'ray tracing mode'. The implementation of Ray-tracing is very welcomed, but it's also known to be very taxing. Maybe 4A Games are going to go down the 'dynamic resolution' path to stay in the 60fps safe zone.
Metro: Exodus was, and still is, one of the best looking "Ray-Tracing games" on PC. We have no doubt that the Kyiv studio will do its magic and beautify the already beautiful game for consoles as well.
It’s important to note that the Next-gen upgrade for Metro Exodus will be free, and anyone who doesn’t have this game in their library can buy it for just $13 at the PSN Black Friday sale .
4A Games have also announced that they are working on a new Metro game and that their upgraded engine will take full advantage of the PCs and the power of new consoles and their ultra-fast SSDs.
