Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition Requirements Pc

Metro Exodus is already a gorgeous game, but what if it made use of the latest hardware? The result is Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, which was revealed this past February. The game previously had a release window on PCs for this Spring, but now we have a more specific date. Users on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GoG will be able to download Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition on May 6. However, not everyone will be able to run the game. 4A Games has released a requirements list for Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, and regardless of quality settings, they’re all somewhat demanding.

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition is a new version of the game built specifically with ray tracing in mind, among other visual enhancements. However, an FAQ at the bottom of today’s blog post reveals that this version of the game is just for those with high-end hardware. When asked if Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition could be played with ray tracing off, the answer is essentially no, you cannot.

 

Here are the various requirements listed for Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition:

Minimum

  • Average performance: 1080P, 45 fps
  • Visual Quality Settings: Normal
  • Ray tracing quality settings: Normal
  • CPU Cores: 4 Cores, hyperthreading necessary
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060

Recommended

  • Average performance: 1080P, 60 fps
  • Visual quality settings: High
  • Ray tracing quality settings: High
  • CPU Cores: 8 Cores
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 2070/RTX 3060, AMD RX 6700 XT

High

  • Average performance: 1440p, 60 fps
  • Visual quality settings: Ultra
  • Ray tracing quality settings: High
  • CPU Cores: 8 Cores
  • Memory: 16 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 3070, AMD RX 6800 XT

Ultra

  • Average performance: 4K, 30 fps
  • Visual quality settings: Ultra
  • Ray tracing quality settings: High
  • CPU Cores: 8 Cores
  • Memory: 16 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 3080, AMD RX 6900 XT

RT Extreme

  • Average performance: 4K, 60 fps
  • Visual quality settings: Extreme
  • Ray tracing quality settings: Ultra
  • CPU Cores: 8 Cores
  • Memory: 16 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 3090

Despite the requirements listed for Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition being so demanding, there is some wiggle room in there. 4A games collected these values with Shading Rate 1 and DLSS off. Changing the game’s shading rate and activating DLSS could potentially lead to better performance on lower-end cards, so even if you don’t have an RTX 3090, you may be able to play at 4K, 60 fps.
