Crytek’s third-person action-adventure game “Ryse: Son of Rome” is coming to the PC later this year. The German video game company will self-publish the title on digital channels and British developer Deep Silver will distribute the game’s boxed version.
The PC game will support 4K resolution and include all the “Ryse” downloadable content that’s currently available for the title. This will include the Colosseum Pack, the Mars’ Chosen Pack, the Duel of Fates Pack and the Morituri Pack. Users will also gain access to the multiplayer map Ruins and the Legionnaire’s Trust sword.
“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," said Carl Jones, director of business development at Crytek, on the developer’s site on Thursday.
“Ryse: Son of Rome” originally launched on Nov. 22, 2013, the same day Microsoft’s Xbox One reached buyers, as an Xbox One-exclusive title. The game follows the trials of Roman centurion Marius Titus and his tumultuous quest to become a leader in the Roman legion.
The game was announced during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles in 2010 under a codename, and was confirmed as a Microsoft exclusive in May of 2013.
