We won't have to wait much longer for Metro Exodus on Xbox Series X and S, as an enhanced version of the game is confirmed to be arriving on June 18 as a free upgrade to all existing owners. There will also be a physical edition of the game made available.

Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition will bring ray tracing, 60FPS support, and new lighting effects. Alongside this, a field of view slider is also being incorporated for the first time in the series. Players who pick up the physical edition will also receive both expansions, The Two Colonels and Sam's Story, as part of a Complete Edition.

Utilising the power of these new consoles, we have been able to include 4K*, 60 FPS, Ray Tracing throughout (including Ray Traced emissive lighting as pioneered in The Two Colonels), Field of View options and platform specific features such as spatial audio and controller latency improvements on Xbox.

*4K visuals available only on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S will run at 1080p whilst maintaining 60 FPS

This isn't the final stop for the Metro series, either. 4A Games previously announced that it has new projects in the works related to the series. which is said to be "delivering a great story driven single player experience". But there are apparently also plans for "a multiplayer experience in the Metro universe".

Sounds like some exciting times are ahead for the franchise!
