GAME ENGINE

4A Engine and Metro Exodus

Created by the Ukrainian studio 4A Games, Metro Exodus is the third game in the Metro series based on a series of post-apocalyptic novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky. The game is an impressive example of what can be achieved with the 4A Engine.

Metro Exodus 2020 02 11 19 23 03 701 Metro Exodus 2020 02 11 19 24 41 400

This game engine was developed specifically for the Metro series, taking into account the features of game mechanics and atmosphere. It is particularly noteworthy for its visual abilities, including advanced rendering techniques, lighting work, and texture detail. In Metro Exodus, the engine is used to create more open game environments, while previous games in the series were more linear.

Metro Exodus 2019 02 09 19 37 36 173 Metro Exodus 2019 02 09 19 42 20 811

Metro Exodus follows Artyom, the hero of the previous games, as he tries to survive in a brutal world after a nuclear war. The game combines elements of stealth, first-person shooter and survival in a variety of well-developed environments.

Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition

In 2023, 4A Games released Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, offering major graphics and performance improvements based on the original game. This is not just an update, but a completely redesigned version of the game, specially created for more powerful hardware.

One of the major improvements in the Enhanced Edition is full support for ray tracing technology. The original version of Metro Exodus used ray tracing for realistic lighting and reflections, but the Enhanced Edition has improved this feature, making it deeper and more comprehensive. This resulted in a significant improvement in image quality, especially in scenes with complex lighting.

In addition, the Enhanced Edition offers a number of other technical enhancements, including improved shadows, textures, post-processing, and animation. All this together leads to more realistic and attractive graphics that take full advantage of the new gaming systems and PCs.

Difference between Metro Exodus and Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition

Let's now discuss the main differences between Metro Exodus and Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition.

  1. Ray Tracing: As already mentioned, one of the most notable improvements in the Enhanced Edition is the fuller use of ray tracing. This technology, which models the path of light rays through a scene for realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows, was present in the original game, but its use has been expanded and improved in the Enhanced Edition. The result is more realistic and dynamic lighting.

  2. Performance and Optimization: The Enhanced Edition has been specifically designed for use on more powerful systems including the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and modern gaming PCs. This means it's optimized to take full advantage of these systems, resulting in better performance and better graphics.

  3. Improved textures and detail: The added power of the new systems has allowed 4A Games to add higher resolution textures and more detail to scenes. This is especially noticeable in scenes with rich environments, where you can see more detail in plants, buildings, and other elements.

  4. DLSS and FidelityFX Support: Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition includes support for Nvidia's DLSS and AMD's FidelityFX image enhancement technologies. These technologies use artificial intelligence and other techniques to improve image quality while maintaining performance.

In conclusion, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition is a massive improvement on the original game, using the latest graphics and performance technologies to create a more realistic and immersive gaming experience. Regardless, it's important to note that the story and game mechanics remain unchanged, so it's still the same Metro Exodus game you know and love, only with improved graphics and performance.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment

Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings. We started testing the original Metro Exodus, but the results in the benchmark turned out to be almost identical, and the benchmark itself is extremely unstable in the original version, so we refused to test it.

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
