Metro Exodus PC specs are quite demanding

Whether you have an entry-level build or an extreme rig, Metro Exodus will leverage the full might of PC hardware

With face-melting carnage and optimized performance, Metro games are known for pushing graphics cards and processors to their utmost limit. Metro Exodus won't be any different.




Today 4A Games announced Metro Exodus' PC spec requirements, and they're pretty beefy. The game has four graphics presets: Low, High, Ultra and Extreme, and the jumps between each are pretty high. To play the open-ended shooter at 1080p 30FPS on Low settings, gamers will need to meet minimum spec requirements of an Intel Core-i5 4400, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670/NVIDIA GeForce 1050 or AMD Radeon 7870 GPU, and 8GB of RAM.




Recommended specs are a pretty decent sized jump. To play at 1080p 60FPS at High settings you'll need an Intel Core i7-4770K CPU, either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or an AMD RX Vega 56 graphics card with 8GB of VRAM, and 8GB of system RAM.


To play at 1440p at 60FPS at Ultra settings, you'll need an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/Nvdiia GeForce RTX 2070, or an AMD RX Vega 64 graphics card with at least 8GB of VRAM, and 16GB of RAM.


And of course the Extreme setting will tap the most explosively powerful GPU on the market. To hit 4K 60FPS at Extreme graphics preset you'll need an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080Ti graphics card, and 16GB of RAM.


Metro Exodus launches on February 15, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
