    Yeah, people aren't blaming 4A games for this. They understand that 4A games didn't want to be exclusive to the Epic store.

    Interesting anecdote. Some friends of mine have pirated for the first time in over 15 years because of this whole fiasco. This is despite them having the Epic client on their system (mostly for Fortnite).

    They are doing it purely to protest Epic pulling this kind of stunt.

    They are currently trying to determine how to go about mailing a check to 4A games directly in order to "pay for the game" and if they can't do that to immediately buy the game once it appears on GoG, Steam, or any other platform than Epic.

    What's even more amusing (to me) is that had Epic not purchased exclusivity, they likely would have bought it on the Epic store just for the 10 USD discount compared to other stores.

    Lol, I'm one of the supposedly few people who bought a license to WinRAR, so as you can imagine I'm not a piracy advocate, and I hope down the road your friends feel OK about paying for their copies of the game. Until then maybe they could buy swag connected to the game? All I could find was this, and maybe they don't get a cut. https://www.metrothegame.com/en-us/books/

    Yes, they are fans of the studio and the game. Despite the bugs, Metro: Exodus from everything I've seen is a really good game. So, they plan on reimbursing 4A studios as much as they can. Current plan I'm hearing from them is to buy it at 60 USD (if it comes out at that price) on GoG, Steam, or the Origin store (the other Metro games are all on those storefronts). If it doesn't come out at 60 USD, they plan on buying it twice. :D

    I'm just going to wait until it hits either GoG or Steam. Probably just Steam so that my library is all in one place. But it's been REALLY tempting to pirate it out of spite against Epic and because I want to play it.

    In an ideal world every game would be available on GOG. Can't beat the complete lack of DRM. I'd buy it from Epic though.

    Heh, good thing they still release update notes on Steam (4A guys like Steam), because Epic sure can't be arsed to provide that information for the game on their storefront.

    Or provide a way for the developer to do so (how Steam does it).

    Probably costs too much money. Need that money to buy exclusives. :p

    I logged into my brother's account on Epic. Gonna try the game that way. Client is certainly barebones. I suppose they just got the basics going for launch.

    Ray marching/steps for SSR and GI (e.g. Light propagation volumes, SVOGI).

    Wonder about extending that to finite bodies of fog/clouds. See also decima engine.

    Anyways.

    I was very disappointed finding out that this game doesn't support DX12 multi GPU:-(

    I been playing this game from the Xbox game pass. Loved the other Metro games.

    I'm at the bridge cult part. Once I got off the train I decided to go exploring and got super carried away. I did find some useful things but ended up using all but 1 bullet in the process. Now I'm having to fight the whole bridge clan with throwing knives and melee :grin:

    Also the game seems to pretty much lock 60fps at High settings on my GTX970 and looks great. I swear this GTX970 has more legs than the old 8800GT.
