Larkspur, Calif. (Nov. 25, 2020) - Deep Silver and 4A Games are pleased to announce that Metro Exodus, the epic story-driven first person shooter inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, will be coming to Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 with major enhancements including faster frame rate, increased resolution, reduced loading times and stunning ray tracing features made possible by the new hardware.

 

Next-gen consoles will enable 4A Games to deliver visual enhancements and improved performance, which has previously only been possible on state-of-the-art PC hardware and RTX enabled cards. In addition, the advanced versions of Metro Exodus will be made available as a free upgrade to existing and future current-gen game owners. A release date will be announced in the near future.

 

Continuing the celebration of the Metro 10th Anniversary, Deep Silver and 4A Games have captured the decade-long journey with the unique Metro Timeline – an interactive retrospective that charts every major event in the studio and series’ history.

The timeline reveals the interweaving history of Dmitry Glukhovsky, 4A Games and the world of the Metro video games in one place, offering fans and newcomers alike a unique way of exploring this iconic series.

 

As part of a major studio update, 4A Games has also confirmed the next Metro title is in development for next generation consoles and PC. This will include a complete overhaul of the engine and renderer to take advantage of the new power, storage, and hardware supported ray tracing afforded by the new consoles. Furthermore, the recently announced partnership with Saber Interactive will allow 4A Games to explore a multiplayer experience in the new Metro universe.

 

“As a small studio we have never been able to do justice to these ambitions, and our ideas have never made it beyond the prototype phase,” said 4A Games. “But with Saber’s experience in online gaming, we are now actively exploring multiplayer concepts that will offer a new way to experience the world of Metro.”
