New Game+ will allow players to carry over their weapons and attachments gathered during the first playthrough. It also provides a wide variety of customizable features so players can make their second time through completely their own.

Of particular interest is the developer commentary feature. There will be hidden tapes players can find throughout the game in New Game+ that offers some commentary about that particular area.

The developers also said the bug and crash fixes were made based on the extensive feedback received from players, including the dump files and crash reports submitted to them.

The full patch notes can be found below:

Inventory Modes

My Weapons

  • Allows you to start with all weapons and attachments found in the last playthrough

Deep Silver also provided separate patch notes for PC and console versions.

Despite the controversy surrounding its move to the Epic Games Store and the backlash it faced, Metro Exodus is already proving to be a big hit with fans. It seems the Ranger update is set to offer an even grander adventure.
