4A Games Releases Metro Exodus' PC System Requirements

The Metro series has always been known for having monstrous PC system requirements, at least for those who want to play the game at its highest settings. 

The PC system requirements for Metro Exodus are here, providing PC gamers with the opportunity to see how scalable the 4A Engine can be, scaling from low-powered consoled like the Xbox One to bleeding edge PCs with flagship level hardware like the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti. 

For their PC system requirements, 4A Games have provided us with system hardware specs for 1080p 30FPS, 1080p 60FPS, 1440p 60FPS and 4K 60FPS, moving from Minumum specs to Recommended, High and Ultra hardware recommendations respectively. The game will support Nvidia's RTX technologies, but today's specs only account for the game without Nvidia's RTX technologies enabled. 

In the coming days, 4A Games will release hardware requirements for Nvidia RTX ray tracing, which are expected to be significantly higher than what you will see below.

Reassuring to know my Vega64 is more than enough for 1080p despite Metro being a GPU hog. Would have liked to see some Ryzen CPUs listed even though I doubt it'll be a major issueQuote

Hmm. 1080p with Vega 64, or 1440p with Titan XP?

Or both

Very excited about this game and New Dawn.Quote

why would you need a 9900k instead of a 8700k at 4k ress?, I doubt the cpu will be the limiting factor at that ressQuote

Ahh, they always do that. They're just covering themselves by saying you need something top-end and powerful. It basically means, the most powerful processor will be best. It doesn't mean you need a 9900K if you want 4k/60FPS and have a 2080Ti. A 9700K, 8700K or 2700X will be likely totally fine.Quote

That's me not meeting the 1440p requirements (and who knows what specific settings they used), too bad! Still, pretty decent recommendations.Quote
