Metro Exodus patch fixes lingering Xbox Game Pass for PC bugs

What you need to know

  • A fresh hotfix is now available for the Metro Exodus Xbox Game Pass PC release.
  • The patch corrects two lingering issues related to freezing when using Alt + Tab and game settings failing to be saved.
  • This is the second patch in as many weeks addressing issues specific to the Xbox Game Pass PC release.
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is currently available at a $1 promotional price (opens in new tab).

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 (opens in new tab). Starting July 4, the price will jump up to its regular rate of $15 per month.

  • Does anyone know if it now allows us to revert it to Directx 11? Mine seems to be stuck in DX12 which seems to be causing performance issues for me.
