    There is definitely something not great when it comes to graphics in this game, there is something missing in the whole scene, whether its the textures or the broken woods and such, some areas the game shines, but i simply for example find that wolfenstein the new colossus is.much better looking game than this graphics wise, the id tech engine feels much more modern in all aspect of rendering the world

    Steam got where it is by being the first, and doing what it does very well.

    Also, there's nothing official anywhere that definitively says Exodus sold better because of the Epic store.
    Exodus sold better because it's the third entry in a good series, a series that has shown improvements with each new release. As others have pointed out, look at the sales differences between The Witcher 2 and 3. 3 smashed 2 sales wise, but did so with the same distribution.

    A more impressive and interesting breakdown, would be... how many copies of Exodus were sold on Steam since it's initial announcement, up until the Epic exclusivity announcement. As that last day, the game was the number 1 selling game on Steam.
    But, saying Exodus sold better just because of Epic. That's just a matter of cherry picking facts to bolster a public image. HALO 3 sold better then 2... and so on, and so on.

    First is correct, very well is a stretch imo.

    Is anyone saying Exodus sold well because of Epic, i think it's more that it sold well in spite of Epic, which is good news.

    Epic is trying to spin the public image of the sales to make it seem that it sold well because of them.

    I've found Steam keys (albeit expensive) on two key-sites already, hm...will the 12 month exklusive deal finish prematurely?

    Careful, may not be legit. If they are actually unused Steam pre-order keys then fine but at this point kind of doubt it.

    I don't dare to buy such a key :) Plus it's expensive as hell. PC games should have PC game prices, not console prices.

    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


    please note:

    Level specific content fixes or changes can only be fully applied to a level when it is started from the beginning either through natural progression, or the chapters menu. If you try to load an existing save within a level, the updates for that level will not be applied to that existing save. Updates will apply to all subsequent levels progressed to with that save.

    RANGER PATCH NOTES:

    IMPROVED CONTROLLER RESPONSIVENESS
    We’ve added a 4th Controller Sensitivity Preset – if you are mid-game you will need to manually select this from Options > Controller > Sensitivity to see if you prefer this adjustment.

    This 4th preset has a new algorithm which treats its sub-settings different from other presets, in order to further address certain responsiveness complaints. It also contains improved aim assist and controller dead zones per platform.


    PLATFORM SPECIFIC IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW FEATURES

    PC SPECIFIC

    • Improved Stability with RTX enabled
    • Fixed Attributes for running the game in Safe Mode

Like Windows Safe Mode, the purpose is to mitigate startup issues due to Hardware or Data issues and to allow the user to get to the Main Menu and start Troubleshooting.
    • Launches game with the following settings: Resolution 720p, Quality Level Low, Tessellation Off, RayTracing Off, DLSS Off, Shading Rate 1, DX11, Hairworks Off, Advanced PhysX Off

    No replies to the patch post or the patch itself other than the previous post? It may take a little time to check out the patch features in various areas of the game. I haven't even started the launcher (Epic) today. So I'll try it and see how it goes with RT on.

    Can someone comment on the image quality using DLSS @3440x1440 with all the latest patches and drivers installed? Is it acceptable with a minimum loss in visual clarity?

    DX12 was a constant crash with hair or not, DX11 was excellent with hair and Physx.
    DX11 got a nice boost in fps :D DX12 the same :mad:
