Crytek announces Ryse: Son of Rome for PC

Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome will be released on PC this Autumn.

The news comes following a period of mass disturbance at developer Crytek, during which the Homefront IP was sold to Deep Silver, along with the team working on the game at Crytek UK.

This new PC release, which is being published digitally by Crytek and physically by Deep Silver, includes all of the DLC and support for 4K visuals.

“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,” Crytek’s director of business development Carl Jones said.

“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.”

It has previously been suggested that Crytek refused to develop Ryse 2 thanks to a dispute with Microsoft over ownership of the IP.
