Deep Silver and 4A Games have just revealed Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition and they've confirmed that Linux support for Metro Exodus is still happening.

A lot of the work they're currently doing is on supporting the newer consoles, and while it already supported Ray Tracing, they decided to do a "radical" overhaul of their proprietary 4A Engine to improve the Ray Tracing found using more advanced and better techniques.

For the PC version (they probably mean Windows), it will be free for anyone who owns Metro Exodus as a standalone application and will release "later this spring". Thankfully, Linux has not been forgotten about. After confirming their continued commitment to release Metro Exodus for Linux in November last year, this big announcement also once again confirmed that the Linux version will appear a bit later this year (sometime after March when it lands for macOS).

Last but not least – back in November, we also confirmed our commitment to Mac and Linux versions of Metro Exodus.

We’re happy to confirm that the Mac version is expected to release on the Mac App Store, Steam, and Epic Games Store in March, with the Linux version set to follow a little later in the year on Steam!

Hopefully the Linux version won't miss out on some of these Ray Tracing boosts. Vulkan now has official Ray Tracing support so it would be great to see it in properly.

I wonder if they are going to provide native build for Apple M1.

Linux support for the original game is great of course... but the way that press release reads, ME:Enhanced for PC sure seems to be Windows only.

Yeah I understand it the same way as you do ... I hope we are proven wrong.

And you see not a word about GOG release... For the macOS version they mention explicitly some stores, but for Linux it's just Steam... Tell me I'm wrong...

Still no GOG release?

This is Deep Silver as the publisher. I wouldn't expect them to support anything besides Steam...

Why not? They support GOG with Windows versions.
But . . . but that's impossible! Didn't Proton kill native releases?!?!
I would love a GOG version just on principle of Windows users getting one but I feel I will be disappointed.

Considering it's not out yet you may be jumping the gun here. Not to mention one game doesn't shift the balance regardless. If the percent of games that see a native release is less than it was before Proton does it matter if we get a specific native release of this game ?
