Retail and digital versions announced, and PC version includes DLC.
Today, Crytek revealed that 'Ryse: Son of Rome' is coming to the PC this fall. Crytek is bringing the game to digital channels while Deep Silver will handle boxed copies. The PC version will include "all of the Ryse: Son of Rome DLC packages that have been created and released since launch" of the original Xbox One version. Even better, the PC version is set to officially support a 4K resolution.
Carl Jones, Director of Business Development at Crytek, "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."
Specified DLC that comes with the PC version includes: 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. The PC version will even include the Ruins multiplayer map and the 'Legionnaire's Trust' sword that were included in the Day One Xbox One version of the game.
The game is set for a fall release. In spite of the game's awkward development history, it was not a critical failure. (Check out the High-Def Digest Review of the Xbox One version.) Crytek has shared some screenshots to tease the preview version.
