GSY Video Stadia

After our first videos with 8 games running on Google's cloud gaming platform , today you can watch Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Final Fantasy XV, Metro Exodus and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Again, the videos were captured in 1440p via Chrome.

Don't worry guy, Gamersyde hasn't become an HDR only website, but we're trying to catch up on the games we could never show you this way and Metro Exodus was one of them. The last DLC entitled Sam's Story was released a little while back but we never truly took the time to give it some coverage so we figured it would be a good opportunity to do so. We'll probably add some SDR footage as well in the days to come, but until then you can finally see what 4A Games' title looks like with HDR and ray tracing.
Update 2 SDR videos added.

The new expansion for Metro Exodus is now available. Sam's Story offers around 5 hours of story gameplay in a sandbox survival level that sees the Spartan Ranger hoping to return to his homeland. As a note for PC players, the game will be made available on Steam on February 15th.

The second story-DLC for Metro Exodus, titled Sam's Story, will hit PC and consoles on February 11th 2020. Players will be able to follow the Spartan Ranger's journey through Vladivostok on his quest to find a way back home in the U.S. First screenshots inside.

The Two Colonels, the first story-driven DLC for Metro Exodus is now available. It is set a year before the main game's events and features Colonel Khlebnikov on a dangerous path while on his way home to see his son Kirill for New Year’s Eve.

Ray tracing obviously adds a lot to visual fidelity in terms of lighting, but it's also quite a demanding technology which can affect performance dramatically. With everything else Metro Exodus does to push the hardware in the extreme preset, it's not surprising to see that capping the framerate at 30 fps does not even guarantee it will remain steady in 4K in some areas of the game. We've prepared a comparative video showcasing RTX with DLSS off. Enjoy!
Update: 4 videos added, among which one new comparison between RTX High and no RTX and a 1440p/60fps video in ultra and RTX set to high.

We received yesterday afternoon our own Geforce RTX 2080 TI and after some technical issues (this is Gamersyde after all) we got it at work on Metro Exodus to check its raytraced Global Illumination system. As expected the difference goes from very subtle to quite flagrant depending on the scenes, with a maybe slightly more natural lighting and much more contrast (same might say too much) in the darker part of the map. Let's start with these two videos of the Volga level, running in 4K Ultra Preset, with DLSS enabled and RTX in Ultra mode, showing a game that almost manages to get up to 60 fps in these conditions. 2 more videos will follow shortly, with more within the next few days hopefully showing direct comparisons between RTX on and off.
Update: Added two videos with this time RTX on High.

GSY Review PC PS4 Xbox One

Many people have been eagerly waiting for the release of Metro Exodus and so have we. Even though the previous 2 games were far from being perfect, they have always had a particular flavor for us. The question was to know if that flavor wouldn't be too different after leaving all the underground locations of the Russian capital. To find out if that's the case, all you need to go is give our verdict a quick read and enjoy all the videos we have prepared for your eyes only.
Note: All the captured footage was recorded before the release of the dedicated Nvidia drivers.
