Crytek's recent troubles have been well documented, but things may be looking up thanks to another co-publishing partnership with Deep Silver. Today, Crytek announced that former Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome will finally be coming to PC this Fall, shortly after Capcom's Dead Rising 3 makes the jump. While the Xbox One launch title received mixed reviews, one thing almost every critic and user agreed upon was that it was a visual masterpiece, despite Ryse's sub-1080p resolution (900p, to be exact). So as amazing as it looked on Xbox One, just imagine how it'll look on PC, especially if you have a beastly machine with a 4K monitor.
Carl Jones, Director of Business Development at Crytek stated, "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."
Along with 4K support, the PC version of Ryse will contain all the DLC packages that have been released since launch, including: 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. In addition, the Ruins multiplayer map and "Legionnaire's Trust" sword will also be included, which had previously only been available as part of a special edition package.
