“Metro Exodus will run at 4K / 60FPS with full Ray Traced lighting throughout on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X,” said developer 4AGames. “The base game and DLC expansions will feature both our ground-breaking Ray Traced Global Illumination (RTGI) and the Ray Traced Emissive Lighting techniques pioneered in The Two Colonels expansion across all content.”
On Microsoft’s budget Xbox Series S console, Metro Exodus will instead run at 1080p but will still feature full ray-tracing support unlike games such as Control.
