Seems to be well optimised as well. Rock solid 60fps with ultra settings at 1440p. 4k is too much for my system with fps dropping to 30 unfortunately.
Think some of the reviews of this have been a bit harsh.
I haven't read any of the reviews or seen the scores it's getting.
I'm loving it so far, on to the second open area and finally got a sniper rifle with a decent scope. You get a van to drive about in too which was a nice surprise. Other than the reveal trailer I've gone into this completely blind so I had no idea about it being a lot less linear the the previous games.
Completed this earlier. Excellent game and definitely my favourite in the trilogy. It does a really god job of switching between the traditional Metro linear gameplay and the open world stuff and doesn't outstay its welcome. Final chapter was brilliant .
Just finished this. It ties with RE2 as m6 GotY. Absolutley awesome. The last part was excellent. Unmatched story telling for a fps. Got the gooseberry fool ending. Don't think I can play it through all again as it was some effort and there are other games coming out.
We’re very happy to announce the release of the ‘Ranger Update’ - our first major patch for Metro Exodus, for all platforms. This is a significant update that adds a host of new features, makes improvements across the board and addresses numerous bugs and issues.
We’d like to thank our players for your help in identifying these issues. Our goal has always been to ship the most polished product we can at launch, but we humbly acknowledge that some things can slip through even the most thorough QA. Thank you again for your patience and support.
The ‘Ranger Update’ is approximately 6 GB in size and is available to download now. Full patch notes are below, but here are the headlines:
NEW GAME + On completion of the campaign, you can now re-play in New Game+ mode, granting access to all weapons and attachments unlocked through prior play-throughs.
New Game + also allows to you to adjust a range of variables to create your own personal and uniquely challenging experience, and comes with new Achievements / Trophies. More details below…
DEVELOPER COMMENTARY Available through New Game +, enabling Developer Commentary allows you to find special tape players on which members of the 4A Games team discuss some of the design choices that went into making Metro Exodus in that area.
IMPROVED CONTROLLER RESPONSIVENESS While the Hotfix changes were already well received, we’ve added a 4th Controller Sensitivity Preset with more tweaks to sensitivity, improved aim assist, and better ‘dead zone’ per platform.
PLATFORM SPECIFIC IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW FEATURES We’ve added Mouse and Keyboard support for Xbox One, further improved RTX and DLSS support on PC, Dual Shock Controller Light support for PS4 and many more.
GENERAL PERFORMANCE, BALANCE AND GAMEPLAY OPTIMISATIONS A raft of improvements across the board that improve the overall gameplay experience based on bugs reported, desired polish, and direct feedback/feature requests from the community, including things like a Volume Slider specifically for VO, and more.
CRASH / BUG FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS We’ve fixed numerous crashes - some from your descriptions, and some from the crash dumps you have submitted to us. We’ve only listed a few below, but you should expect a big improvement to stability in this update. Thank you for continuing to help us out!
FULL UKRAINIAN LOCALISATION ADDED We’re proud to offer Metro Exodus fully localised for Ukraine, the country where 4A Games was born.

Just started this. Enjoying it so far but I find the gun switching really confusing, nothing appears to be named so I can’t tell what’s hat and the stats don’t show so you never know if picking up a dropped weapon is worthwhile. Kind of pushes me toward checking out of the game as happened with past Metro’s, but the world is keeping me hooked this time.
People talk a lot don’t they, though maybe it feels that way because I have it in Russian.
I think I’m done with this. I like the characters and mechanic of travelling region to region, picking up new people and developing the train. The core moment to moment gameplay though I just don’t find particularly engaging and the visuals are muddy in a way that makes shooting people really frustrating. Also the way-pointing is really bad I seem to wander around in circa lot because everything kind of looks the same and it’s really not clear where the game wants you to go most of the time. It’s the furthest I’ve ever gotten through a Metro game but ultimately I don’t think this series is for me.
Why is my PS4 resetting downloads whenever I put it into rest mode?I recently ran into an issue where my external hard drive needed to be reformatted, and I needed to reinstall a lot of my games. One of the games has been crashing at the main menu, and other options have been tried to fix it. I’ve opted to just reinstall the game again, but now there’s a problem. The update file being downloaded is about 60 gigs, and typically I would put the PS4 in rest mode to download. However, when I go to check the status of the download, it’s restarted! The amount of gigabytes required changes too, even though it’s the same update.
Is the PS4 compensating for the gigs already downloaded and just making a new progress bar each time? I don’t want to have to keep resetting the progress, but I’m wary about leaving my PS4 on overnight.

Welcome back to GRcade, EnragedYogi! Exodus appears to have a split of enthusiasts and critics; how are you finding it?
Thanks Jawa! Really enjoyed what I've played so far, but I've got sidetracked with other games. I may start again as I'm definitely on for the bad ending so far! It's more metro extermination with my play style
It's one of those games where I hear how long the campaign is, but know you can multiply that by 4 as I'll be wandering around to check every area fully as it's so atmospheric.
