Finally today is the day...almost downloaded..I was saving it for nexr gen..because on last gen it was very jerky in graph and resolution is boosted in a point as it is in a high end pc...I think this gen of consoles is like a very high end pcs in terms of power right now...

Very high end?

Midrange PC is more accurate.

Digital Foundry's analysis shows Series X has the highest resolution on this title on console, with a mix of medium and high settings and image quality hovering around 1440p with some drops from 60FPS. Any Nvidia RTX card matches or exceed this level on this game.

1440p, DLSS with better than native image quality and equivalent or better settings an RTX2060 will do the target 60FPS.

RTX2060 is the slowest RTX card available and decidedly mid range at best.

From a DF comparison Article:
"In terms of typical resolutions in the open world, the Sony machine operates between 1296p and 1512p, while Series X runs in similar scenarios at 1512p to 1728p.
I generally found PlayStation 5 to have a significant advantage in locking to 60 frames per second. Sony's new console delivers a Metro Exodus experience that's super-smooth in combat, and equally robust in traversing the open world. Similar to Xbox Series X, there can be the odd one-frame drop, but where I found PS5 smoother is in areas where I saw some significant stutter on the Microsoft machine."

Basically, one has higher stable frame rate, the other has higher resolution. Take your pick.

Presumably most people recognise RTX2060 launched as the mid range card of the previous RTX generation models in January 2019 is not classed as very high end today. There is about a dozen Nvidia desktop models above it on the GPU hierarchy as of now.

Here is some gameplay footage in a very heavy area of the game that backs up the assertion of RTX2060 performance on this specific title. It's exceeding 60FPS with rare and minor dips. Series X of course also having a few dips below 60FPS.

According to Digital Foundry consoles use medium-high mixed settings with VRS enabled. Averaging around 1440p in dynamic resolution depending on scenario. Series X might be slightly higher, PS5 slightly lower. 'Normal' setting on ray racing global illumination is utilised on console without ray traced reflections, all as per the video.

Most powerful console to ever exist, can probably power the simulation we all live in

Reading comprehension 101:

“Consoles” is plural.

I've been playing it for 2 days and have to admit this is the best $15 game I have ever played

Just ordered it for Ps5, now it’s 60fps.. didn’t bother getting on last gen consoles.

I didn't know this dropped already. I see it on the store (PS4 edition) for €20. Is the enhanced edition a free upgrade from current gen or is it solely a next gen version that I'll have to find on the store??

Silly Mammo41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Already finished the game last year on the Ps4, but held off on playing the two DLCs until the upgrade dropped. Looking forward to diving back into the Metro world.

Did you like the first one? It was a 7 at best for me so I passed on this one. But if I hear this one is better then I might give it a shot.

SyntheticForm41d ago


It's a free upgrade.

If you own the game on PS4 and own a PS5, you can upgrade to the PS5 version at no cost.

Also, I've been playing it and it's great. Looks great and runs great.

It looks and plays great on the Series X. It's so much smoother but the aiming is still a bit janky.

Aloymetal41d ago

Can't find the enhanced edition, I see the ''Gold Edition'' which is currently $19.49 for PS + members.
Is it out already??

JEECE41d ago

If you buy that you can then upgrade to the PS5 version.

Aloymetal41d ago

Oh ok, thanks for the info.

Abear2141d ago

Aloymetal41d ago (Edited 41d ago )
