Deep Silver and 4A Games are happy to announce the release of the Metro Exodus ‘Ranger Update’ today for Xbox One, the all-in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, and PC. This free update adds a host of new features, makes improvements across the board and addresses numerous bugs and issues.
New Game + offers players a new way to experience the game, granting them access to all weapons and attachments unlocked through prior play-throughs. The mode also allows players to adjust a range of variables to create their own personal and uniquely challenging experience.
Included in New Game + is the Developer Commentary feature, which allows players to find special tape players on which members of the 4A Games team discuss some of the design choices that went into making Metro Exodus in that area.
4A Games have further refined the control scheme with a new Controller Preset that improves sensitivity and dead zone per platform. There are also some platform specific new features and improvements in the update. 4A Games has added Mouse and Keyboard support for Xbox One, further improved RTX and DLSS support on PC, Dual Shock Controller Light support for PS4 and many more.
The Ranger Update also addresses a large number of player-reported issues as well as improving gameplay, balance and performance throughout.
The ‘Ranger Update’ is approximately 6 GB in size and is available to download now. Full patch notes are below, but here are the headlines:

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.
