Developer 4A Games has announced that Metro Exodus will be coming to PlayStation 5 next year as a free upgrade to existing owners of the game, packing enhancements to both its resolution, frame rate, and more. Separately, the Ukrainian team also confirms it is hard at work on the next entry in the Metro franchise. This will include a multiplayer mode developed in partnership with Saber Interactive, but the team assures fans this online offering will be in fitting with the post-apocalyptic universe. It won't be a box-ticking cash grab.
But let's circle back to Metro Exodus, which 4A Games describes as an experience only made possible by next-gen consoles and powerful PCs. "While we can’t share all the details just yet, you should expect major enhancements including faster frame rate, increased resolution, reduced loading times, and stunning Ray Tracing features made possible by the new hardware."
And as for the new entry in the series, the studio says it is dedicated to delivering a fantastic single player experience first and foremost. "As a studio, we want to constantly push ourselves to create bigger and better games, but we also listen to what the fans are saying, and we know what’s important to you. We take our responsibility to the franchise seriously, and we think you’ll be excited about our plans for the next chapter." The new game will run on an overhauled engine to take advantage of everything the PS5 has to offer, including that all-important SSD.
