Glad to hear thag MS is already trying to fix development issues. Hopefully next year the Series X can start performing like it should for its power. Also the Series S might get more 1440p games as devs get accustomed to the devkits.

We’re currently hard at work on bringing Metro Exodus to Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 next year. While we can’t share all the details just yet, you should expect major enhancements including faster frame rate, increased resolution, reduced loading times, and stunning Ray Tracing features made possible by the new hardware. The new consoles are amazing, and will allow us to deliver visual enhancements and performance only possible on state of the art PC hardware and RTX enabled cards – until now.

We’re happy to confirm that these enhanced versions will also be made available as a free upgrade to all existing owners. That means if you already own Metro Exodus on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, whether digitally or on disc, you will be able to upgrade to this enhanced version on the next generation on consoles for free.

And if you’ve yet to pick up the game on Gen 8, you can do so safe in the knowledge you will get the enhanced version for free should you upgrade your console in the future.

Great news!

Just bought the Gold Edition so I'm definitely going to wait a little longer until we get the patch. Hopefully it will release in a few months.



It definitely does seem like these launch games issues are down to the late dev kits and incomplete dev tools. Hopeful that by Summer 2021 we will start to see multiplats performing better on XSX than on PS5, games like Far Cry 6 in May. Interested to see if these upcoming Dirt 5 and AC Valhalla patches are enough for parity with PS5. CoD pretty much already has parity, DMC 5 performed betted on XSX in most modes, and Watch Dogs from what I've seen has parity (waiting on a DF analysis for confirmation of that).

Bought the new Calls of Doody because of all the drama here, and I read the RT on it looks nice. First two campaign levels are very solid, movement and gunplay feel very good. MP is surprisingly good. They activated Nuketown 24/7 today. TTK is just the right amount imho. I dig how Ghost doesn't hide you from UAV's if you are being a campy bitch, too. It's the most I have enjoyed a CoD MP since Black Ops II probably.

It hard crashes my XSX though. Has happened three times today. Anyone else playing the MP and getting this issue? It boots right back up no problem. And goddamn the thing loads quick. I also get these random moments where my screen goes black for a second then comes back, anyone else having this issue? It's pretty sporadic.

Haven't crashed for me once. But I've read that the issue came with the last 15GB update. I haven't touched the game after that, so probably that's why it probably never happened to me.

I don't really care about the comparisons, it's temporary, I just hope they'll fix the tools before Halo Infinite, development needs to be as smooth as possible for that.

It depends on whether Halo is finished game or not. If it's finished, then it's already finished with the dev tools that they have right now. If it's not which I personally tend to believe more, then it should be fine.



 

From Hater to Addicted lol We need a SoT review from @Spade maybe once he finishes the Tall Tales.

Expect to see a lot of game patches either way. Codemasters is fixing up Dirt 5, and I understand Ubisoft is working on an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla patch for the Xbox Series X to improve gameplay. Microsoft is also working with developers to resolve issues and has acknowledged the comparison videos in a statement to The Verge.

Well, guess I'm waiting for that patch before I pick the game up then. Still have to finish Doom, Doom eternal, Forza 7 and Cyberpunk. I got time.

Speaking of Doom Eternal, anyone pick up the Old Gods DLC? How was it? Thinking about getting the season pass even before I start the campaign.

It also explains Halo Infinite tbh. Even though they would have received target specs and the GDK sooner than the 3rd parties.

It's actually crazy to think that XsX is reaching parity in a lot of the games all things considered.

It was crashing like crazy for me too. UNTIL I realized that for some reason the "Xbox One" version was instralled.

You need to check in your "game list" if you have the logo X|S displayed on the COD game. If not you installed the wrong one.

I've beaten it. It's really hard. Prepare for some real challenge. It is way harder than the base game and a true test of skill.

I also remember hearing that the July Halo Infinite gameplay wasn't running on Series X or even a Series X specced PC, but a mid-range PC dev kit that MS uses, something like 7 or 8 tflop as I recall, a good bit less than the 12 tflop Series X. Don't know if that was true or not, but if it was, we can expect an even bigger graphical improvement when Halo gets shown again.
