Crytek’s third-person action game, Ryse: Son of Rome, was released on 22nd November 2013 as an Xbox One exclusive launch title. However, today the publishers announced the game is heading to PC this autumn (or fall, if you like).
The PC version will come packaged with all the DLC since launch, with Crytek publishing the digital version of the title, and co-publishing partner Deep Silver handling the boxed versions.
In Ryse: Son of Rome players take control of, Marius Titus, and must guide him on his journey to becoming one of the leaders in the Roman Legion. The game features co-op multiplayer too, which tasks players to work together in a gladiatorial arena to complete multiple challenges.
The bonus material to come with the game includes new character skins, arena maps, and the ‘Legionnaire’s Trust’ sword, which was first released as part of the special edition of the game.
In a press release Carl Jones, Director of Business Development at Crytek, said;
‘We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support. 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.’
Don't you just hate it when you go for a handshake and miss their hand completely!
