Deep Silver has revealed the PC system requirements for Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus Story Trailer

Deep Silver and 4A Games have released the full PC requirements for Metro Exodus, revealing what tech and hardware gamers will need to continue the story of post-apocalyptic Moscow on PC.

There’s a big focus in this game franchise on always pushing the limits in terms of graphical quality and hardware demands. Gamers have long used the Metro series to benchmark high-end gaming PCs, and it looks like 4A Games and Deep Silver want that trend to continue. That’s because their latest game takes pretty significant advantage of the latest generation Nvidia GPUs, as seen in the higher levels of hardware requirements for this new game.

And good news for those who want to enable Ray Tracing, there’s support in Metro Exodus for that, you just need some specific software and OS needs met. You’ll need at least Windows 10 RS5 (Build 1809) and Direct X 12 capabilities to be able to get that new tech up and running.

Windows 8.1 users will require build 9600 or newer, while Windows 8 users should at least run build 9200. If you’re still sticking with Windows 7, you’re going to need Service Pack 1 or newer in order to run Metro Exodus.

The newest RTX variants are also going to be getting some specific performance profiles within the coming days. We can also expect some new drivers for older GPUs to help improve performance as well.

With all that said, here’s the full rundown of hardware requirements for Metro Exodus, going from minimum settings all the way to the most beautiful the game can look at the high end of the spectrum.
