    This is amazing. You dont have raytracing gpu you cant play a game. We really need more of these now when everyone have one now.

    It's the same game, not a new one, just an RT jacket. So if you do not have an RT-compatible graphics card, .. play metro Exodus.

    Either way raytracing gpu is mandatory meaning enchanced edition is not available to everyone but only few. That can be a good or a bad thing.

    Anyway extreme system req. are missing with 3090 in spec.

    Prolly will look good but its not like im gonna miss much not having a RT capable GPU.


    I just want proper RT racing games.
    That's where I truly beleive RT will shine. And even a heavily modded GTA5.

    I wonder if the original game will get any tweaks\bug fixes etc or all focus on this rt version

    I don't get it. If it came out and worked on non-RT cards but was literally just Metro Exodus, what would be the difference? That people without RT cards get to feel better about owning something that says "enhanced edition" but literally get zero benefit?

    Every game should just released enhanced editions after two years with zero changes lol

    Pretty sure the original won't get anymore patches as it didn't get any in a while (and yeah, I did encounter bugs when I played through it after all DLC etc. were out).

    Great game though, fantastic atmosphere. I held off my second playtrrough till I'd get a RTX card, to enjoy the original RT effects. Yet and now almost 1 year later, it's the game that gets an RT upgrade and I'm still without an RTX card... "good times".

    Just started this game again the other day to try to see what impact raytracing had on my 6900xt@1440p . Was ok but curious too see how it will do in this version. Maybe i will do a playtrough again

    Its about people who own the raytracing gpu and how they feel not otherway around. I personaly like this and not gonna hate on it. I would be playing the game again most likely if i had a capable gpu.

    Yeah, I myself like you guys wonder why do people try to innovate all the time?
    Why can't we just stick to dx11 and do raster for the rest of our lives. I mean,
    it's not like people demand realistic graphics or that we haven't squeezed out the living hell
    out of some technology that was released back in 2009. We should all do a petition
    to stop the development of raytracing technology and its hardware requirement in
    order to run free updates.

    A free game you say with RTX and the best lighting in a video game to date. I say thank you 4A games ,I can not find anything to complain about. Please do not ban my account for not complaining about this and I will try harder to complain in my next post on anything.

    I mean you have to own the original to get the free update.

    What? You seriously wonder if 4A is gonna stop making patches for 99% of their playerbase and instead only make tweaks/bugfixes for users with a RT capable card?
