The Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PC this fall. Crytek is said to publish it on digital channels, and Publisher Deep Silver will distribute the boxed-version to retail stores.
The PC version will support 4K resolution, and will includes all Ryse DLC packs released since the game's launch in November 2013. Said DLC includes the Colosseum Pack, the Mars'Chosen Pack, the Morituri Pack, and the Duel of Fates Pack.The PC edition will also have direct access to the Ruins Multiplayer map, and the Legionnaire Trust Sword, which were only available with the games' Special Edition.
“We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support,” Carl Jones, Crytek's business development chief said. “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.
Sadly, Ryse: Son of Rome has not received the kindest of treatment from critics, being considered one of the weakest launch titles for the Xbox One.
Crytek also has had some financial problems, but has managed to achieve some stability by selling the Homefront IP and developer Crytek UK to publisher Deep Silver.
