Metro Exodus is set to be another GPU cooker

The Metro series has been known for its hardware demands for quite some time within the PC gaming market, with both Metro 2033 and Last Light being games of choice for benchmarking the latest and greatest GPU hardware, at least in the years following their release. 

Metro Exodus is set to release this fall, with an updated engine to offer advanced features like advanced lighting, physically-based rendering, full facial motion capture (for cinematic scenes) a new time of day system (day/night cycle) and dynamic weather simulations. In short, Metro Exodus is set to be another demanding piece of software from 4A Games. 

4A are well aware of their benchmarking pedigree, with plans to "keep the Metro games as a standard for everyone's benchmarking needs", at least according to the game's producer Jon Bloch. In an interview with Game Informer, the producer also stated that " We [4A Games] love blowing up video cards", which means that PC gamers can expect Metro Exodus to be a real stress test when cranked up to max settings.   


Metro Exodus is set to also release on PS4 and Xbox One, with A4 planning to make use of every drop of performance that these consoles have to offer, with plans to deliver HDR support and native 4K resolution support on the Xbox One X. It will be interesting to see what kind of visual sacrifices have to be made to accommodate console hardware, though at least it promises that the game will also be scalable to lower end PCs.

If that is how it is I am glad I have WC GPUs. I just hope it's nowhere near as linear as it seems to be. Yeah they keep panning the camera around to make it look massive, but the gameplay areas I have seen have been very linear so far.

In fact what am I even talking about? it is going to be linear. There is no graphics hardware on earth that could make a world as big as that (like Fallout 4 for example), and be able to run it if it looks like that and wasn't linear.

Not that I mind too much. The first two were linear and fantastic games Quote

Let's be honest, anyone with experience of the Metro games knew it will be a GPU cooker from the announcement, that being said this teasing is agonising. I'm hoping to get a 1080Ti just for this game.Quote
