Ryse: Son of Rome coming to PC with 4K resolution and all DLC included
Ryse: Son of Rome, an Xbox One exclusive released alonside the launch of Microsoft's new console, is coming to PC this fall. What's more, it'll support 4K resolution which means the already gorgeous game will look even more stunning on PC.
“We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support,” said Crytek's Director of Business Carl Jones. “4K gaming is another leap in graphics quality for PC gamers and Ryse is the perfect showcase for what’s now possible in high-end PC games. We’ve given our team the opportunity to show what CRYENGINE can really achieve, without compromising quality, thanks to the incredible hardware available now to PC gamers. Ryse will be a benchmark PC graphics showcase this year and probably for a long time in future. Our community asked for a Ryse PC version, and we have the means and technology to deliver this title with the highest quality possible."
While Crytek will publish the game on digital channels, they'll be working with Deep Silver to publish a boxed version for retail stores. The PC version of Ryse will come with all of the previously released DLC included, which entails the Colosseum Pack containing two character skins and two Arena maps; the Mars’ Chosen Pack containing one new character skin, four Arena maps, and the new Survival mode; the Duel of Fates Pack containing two character skins, two Arena maps, and one additional Survival map; and the Morituri Pack, with three new Arena maps, two Survival maps, and five solo Arena maps. PC players will also have instant access to the Ruins multiplayer map and the "Legionnaire's Trust" sword initially released as part of a special edition of the game.
Though Ryse: Son of Rome looked incredible on Xbox One, its story and gameplay were both heavily criticized. We gave the Xbox One version a 7.5/10 for its impressive visuals (despite the sub-1080p resolution) and fun, but shallow combat.
