I spent my lunch hour playing the PC version. I was genuinely impressed with how well it ran. I play at 1440p 120+ fps Ultra settings. It is quite the sight so far. It seems like they did a lil work to the character models as well to me but it could be a placebo effect. Maybe the raytracing just makes them look more natural?
For those who didn't know, Metro Exodus is in this month's humble bundle. So you can get the Enhanced Edition for $12 if you were a subscriber prior to choice and didn't already have the game on PC. I don't know if there's a price difference for newer members. Extra perk is that you actually contribute to a good cause...so that's always nice.
Don't get this, or maybe you have misunderstood or misread my post.
I'm making no predictions just relying on what comes out into the public domain by the developers themselves. I tend to believe they are more trustworthy and knowledgeable than armchair engineers on here.
Yes, You can enjoy the gameplay of exodus but the story in 2033 is key to the rest of the series don't let people tell you otherwise. 2033 is by far the best game in the series, although mechanically the worst. 2034 and exodus are great and play better but have nowhere near the atmosphere of 2033. 2034 could probably be skipped but is worth a play through.
