Metro Exodus Ranger Update is here, Adds New Game Plus mode

Metro Exodus Ranger Update is now available to download. Now that it has arrived, the biggest Metro Exodus update is here to include new Game Plus mode that will surely buff up to the expectations. Not only that improves performance, but it also adds Ukranian localization and support for the RTX cards, knowing that Ray Tracing is available in Metro Exodus.

Now, the mainstream of this update is the New Game Plus mode, which allows you to put yourself onto the same journey with all the assets you’ve unlocked during your original journey. Having the weapon arsenal improved since the getgo is something really nice, and will put you up to the test of how fast you can beat the game for the second time.

Furthermore, players will get availability to other settings, as they can particularly choose an incentive of how many weapons will be viable. The new Game + mode also adds achievements on the grind list. As officially found on Metro’s official website, the patch notes for the Ranger Update can be found below:

A huge fan of puzzlers. Would love to experience the world and takedown on every single and upcoming game title. In the free time love to sing, follow recent game rumors and try to decrypt them in the best possible way.

  1. The bug break at the start of Autim with Artyom needing to search for s signal at the radio is STILL A F****** PROBLEM. You can’t get the trophy because of it.
