Metro Exodus will be using NVIDIA’s Hairworks and Advanced PhysX effects

As we all know, Metro Exodus will be among the first titles that will support real-time ray tracing. However, 4A Games’ upcoming open-world first-person shooter will also support NVIDIA’s Hairworks and Advanced PhysX effects.

PCGamesHardware was able to capture the graphics settings from the Gamescom 2018 build of Metro Exodus which revealed these new graphics settings.

Obviously this does not surprise us as 4A Games had worked closely with NVIDIA in the previous Metro games. As such, it appears that this partnership will continue in Metro Exodus, with the development team implemented numerous NVIDIA features.

It will be interesting to see whether the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti will be able to run the game with real-time ray tracing and these NVIDIA features enabled, or whether PC gamers will have to choose some features over others in order to maintain a smooth 60fps experience.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
