Metro Exodus garnered plenty of interest when it hit Xbox Game Pass for PC earlier this month, particularly because it was previously an Epic Games Store exclusive. But it hasn't been without its issues, leading to patches for various lingering bugs over the past two weeks. Today, another hotfix has been released for two more bugs that have been causing issues for some players.
As detailed in the running patch notes for Metro Exodus, the latest hotfix corrects and issue that would cause freezing when players used the Alt + Tab shortcut on their PCs. There's also a correction for a problem that resulted in game settings not being saved for some players. It's a relatively small patch compared to the one released last week, but hopefully that's indicative of a smaller pool of problems affecting players.
Metro Exodus is currently one of the most high-profile games available through Xbox Game Pass, and it made quite a splash when it was announced to be joining the lineup. If you're interested in checking it out, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which combines Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass for one monthly fee, is currently available at a promotional price of $1. Starting July 4, the price will jump up to its regular rate of $15 per month.
