Metro Exodus is one the first games that we heard about that would support Nvidia RTX real-time ray tracing technology that will enable lighting and shadows to become more realistic than ever before. Although Shadow of the Tomb Raider is on the list of games that are supposed to support the feature and the game is out, we have yet to get the update that will enable this feature to all. Here we are going to look into the Metro Exodus Nvidia RTX Global Illumination demo.
Nvidia has released a new video in which we can see what the world of Metro Exodus will look like with RTX turned on as compared to when it is turned off. The new Metro Exodus Nvidia RTX Global Illumination demo will walk you through the differences. The game is being run on the RTX 2080 Ti that is going to be available later this month on the 27th.
Other than that, even if you get the top of the line graphics card you will still have to wait till next year when Metro Exodus will come out. Till then you can check out the Metro Exodus Nvidia RTX global illumination demo below:
PCGamesHardware was able to play the demo of the game and it was noted that at 1080p the RTX 2080 Ti was unable to run the game at 60 FPS with RTX on and I think that you can notice that in this video as well. The following was said in this regard:
The entire scene also has a much more authentic effect due to the soft, realistic light transitions, subtle-realistic color transfers and their dynamics as well as the subtle illumination and shading of small details (Global lighting and ambient occlusion are basically closely related and fundamentally similar the respective counterpart of the other technique, which most likely makes the calculation of both effects together relatively efficient).
Let us know what you think about this Metro Exodus Nvidia RTX Global Illumination demo and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out.
