The Metro series has slowly become a cult favorite, with the latest entry proving the most successful and diverse from the previous 2 entries. With the Enhanced Edition launching later today, what kind of graphics improvements can we expect? Thankfully, we now have a comparison video to show it off.

Thanks to the always helpful Cycu1 on YouTube, we can check out the official graphical improvements in the Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, which showcases the enhanced lighting system which is completely ray traced. As such, the minimum required graphics card is an RTX 2060.
