Metro Redux – First Update Adds Volumetric Lights Exclusively To The PC Version

As you may already know, the recently released Metro: Redux was lacking almost all volumetric lights that were present in the original version of Metro 2033. Today, 4A Games and Deep Silver released a 1.2GB patch for the PC version of Metro: Redux that brings a number of them back to the game.

Volumetric lights are basically light rays emanating from somewhere in the environment. Basically, those amazing Godrays that every game has been using lately are volumetric lights. Still, this effect is not limited to sun’s rays as all other light sources can cast such rays, and Metro 2033 had lots of them.

This first update brings some of them back to Metro: Redux, though there are still places in which volumetric lights have not been added/used. Do note also that this graphical feature is exclusive to the PC version as both the Xbox One and the PS4 versions lack it.

There isn’t currently any changelog for this day-one update, but we’ll be sure to update this story once we get our hands on it.
