Metro Exodus ditches Denuvo on all platforms as the game arrives on GOG

Metro Exodus has been released on GOG, a gaming platform which only serves games in a DRM-free form, a factor which has forced Deep Silver and 4A Games to remove Denuvo’s Anti-Tamper technology from the game. 

With Metro Exodus’ GOG release, 4A Games has released a patch for all PC versions of Metro Exodus to remove Denuvo from the game. This means that Steam users, Epic Games Store users, Microsoft Store users and Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers can now play a Denuvo-free version of Metro Exodus. 

In our testing, we have found that Denuvo can be responsible for longer load times and minor reductions in game performance. While most users will not notice any performance changes in-game, all PC players will appreciate these shorter load times, at it will allow players to get into the game much faster.  

With this new patch, the Epic Games Store version of Metro Exodus has gained support for “save backup functionality”, a failsafe against reported cloud save malfunctions. 

Right now, Metro Exodus’ standard edition is available on GOG for £17.49. The game’s Gold Edition, which includes Metro Exodus’ expansion packs, is available for £24.79 and the entire Metro Collection is available for £32.09. The Metro Collection includes Metro Exodus, Metro Exodus’ DLC, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux.
