Microsoft Studios’ Xbox One launch exclusive, Ryse: Son of Rome, will make its way to PC this fall under a co-publishing agreement struck by Crytek and Deep Silver, sporting enhanced, 4K graphics. The PC version will include all previously released downloadable content, along with the Ruins multiplayer map and Legionnaire’s Trust sword, which were only available through a special edition of the game.
Just as Ryse demonstrated the graphical potential of the new console generation, so too does Crytek’s Carl Jones foresee the game setting the high watermark for what top-of-the-line PC hardware can do: “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.”
Ryse: Son of Rome is a gory, historical spectacle, combining fluid, Quick Time Event-driven combat with cinematic cut scenes to create a short, but enjoyable showcase of gaming graphics’ bleeding edge. It looked spectacular on Xbox One, and will definitely be one of the most impressive displays of your beastly rig’s power if you’re a member of the glorious PC gaming master race.
