Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition launches May 6th, won't support AMD Super Resolution

Back in February this year, 4A games announced that the Metro team is working on a new Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition. Today, the company has revealed the launch date for the title and it's set to release next month on the 6th.

As can you probably guess from its name, the Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition will be featuring upgraded visuals over the base game which obviously means enhanced ray-tracing options, and everyone knows ray-tracing is all the buzz in 3D graphics nowadays. In fact, according to the game devs, ray-tracing options in the game cannot be disabled and you'll need a GPU that has dedicated ray-tracing hardware to run the game.

The Enhanced Edition claims to further improve on the already existing and highly impressive Ray Traced Global Illumination that is present in the base game. It will also have Advanced Ray Traced Reflections. You can check out all the new visual features coming to the Enhanced Edition by visiting the original announcement report here.

Much to the disappointment of AMD Radeon fans, the Metro team has declared that AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution will not be featured in the game as it is apparently incompatible with the "rendering techniques" used in Metro Exodus. It will however come with Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 solution.

The Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition will be free to all owners of the original release on Steam, the Epic Games Store, GOG, and the Microsoft Store. In terms of saved games, here's what the Metro team has said:

Epic – Both versions share the same save game directory. Chapter saves will transfer over, but progress inside of a level remains with the version it was created on.

Steam – Both versions share the same save game directory. Chapter saves will transfer over, but progress inside of a level remains with the version it was created on.

GOG – Both versions share the same save game directory. Chapter saves will transfer over, but progress inside of a level remains with the version it was created on.

Microsoft Store – We are unable to officially support save transfers on the Microsoft Store platform as save files are encrypted in their cloud solution per-product.

When it comes to the game's size, it will be in total 80GB, where the base game will be approximately 72.2GB, The Two Colonels expansion will be roughly1 GB, and Sam’s Story will be around 6.4GB. For more information, you can visit the original blog post here.
