Yesterday, Crytek announced Ryse: Son of Rome will be headed to PC later this year. It’s worth noting that Crytek will publish the game on digital platforms like Steam, while Deep Silver will handle the physical copies for retail stores. Additionally, the PC version of Ryse: Son of Rome will feature all DLC packs that have been released since the game’s launch on Xbox One back in November.

“We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support,” said Carl Jones, Director of Business Development at Crytek. “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.”

In our review of Ryse: Son of Rome, we gave the period-piece a Legacy Score of 7, saying the game “doesn’t suck.” As silly as that sounds, the game wasn’t impressive, but not exactly terrible, either. The campaign can be completed in just under 6 hours, but perhaps with all the bonus DLC added to the PC version, players might get more bang for their buck.
