Ryse: Son of Rome coming to PC

Ryse: Son of Rome coming to PC

The PC version of Ryse: Son of Rome will support 4K resolutions and come with all the DLC that has been released on the Xbox One.

Roman soldier brawler and Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome will be heading to the PC later this year.

The PC version will include all of the DLC that has been released on the Xbox One since its launch last November as well as a multiplayer map and a special sword which were only included in the special edition. This new version will also support 4K resolutions on the PC.

’We’ve given our team the opportunity to show what CryEngine can really achieve, without compromising quality, thanks to the incredible hardware avialbale now to PC gamers,’[i] said Crytek director of business development Carl Jones. [i]’Ryse will be a benchmark PC graphics showcase this year and probably for a long time in the future.’

Developer Crytek will be publishing the digital version of the game with Deep Silver handling the retail boxed version. Crytek and Deep Silver have had other business dealings recently with Deep Silver buying the Homefront IP and Crytek UK.

A deal to make a sequel to Ryse was reported as falling through earlier this year when Crytek refused to surrender the rights to the franchise to Microsoft.

Rumours and reports circulated last month that Crytek was in serious financial trouble, resulting in several key staff in its US branch leaving the company and several staffers complaining of payroll being missed. Initially, Crytek denied these reports but more recently announced that the company’s financial situation is now stable.

A QTE game which plays itself that even filthy casuals don't want is exactly what PC gamers have been hankering for!

How is supporting a high resolution worthy of being mentioned like some kind of great feature?

I have indie games on steam that cost less than a fiver and support whatever resolution the PC is capable of.

If there's any Xbox exclusive I want to see on the PC, it'd have to Halo 3/Halo: Reach. Or maybe Halo Wars... I'm seeing a pattern here. (Different companies I know but I can still dream..)

Indeed. Some pre 2000 games support 4K.

A game that didn't sell is coming to a platform that probably doesn't want it...

Prediction - it won't sell anywhere remotely close to the number Crytek hope it will [like on the X1], Piracy will get wheeled out as the reason for it selling badly when the reality is all the 4k shiny in the world won't divert attention away from the game being pretty rubbish...

And all this in an effort to punt an engine no-one wants to pay for...

Seven years later, Crysis is still Crytek's best selling game, evidently they should have laid off the pies before running after the cash.

Played this on xb1 at a m8s house, it looks good no dou't about it but the actual game itself is bad. Would never purchase a game just cause it has 4 k resolution.

The amount that own a 4k screen compared to any other resolution must be in the 0.001% region.

According to steam hw survey for July 2014 0.02% use 3840 x 2160.

By comparison 1.11% use linux, making 4k monitors 55.5 times more obscure than linux.

Obscure is completely the wrong word, and while 4K screens might be 'uncommon' they are more lust-worthy* than Linux, and once Apple release their 4K iMac (Which they will surely do at some point soon), I think you'll find that 4K becomes the new standard pretty damn quickly.... Gotta keep up with the Jones'

*My own poor choice of words.

Apple wont release a 4k IMAC before theres a GPU that can run it that will fit in the power envelopes that Apple uses.

If the Rumoured specs going around for the Nvidia 880 then it will not run 4k resolution at an acceptable fps in modern games. You will need at least 2 of them to reach that level.

Spending 1k + on gpus to run 4k is not something everyone can afford to do.

4k as a whole needs GPU Hardware Manufactures to release alot faster hardware. Or find something but Direct X to code in to get the performance that way.

As it as the Steam survey shows its a niche within a niche.

only 2 models of mac [current models of 15" rMBP and the Mac Pro] currently [officially at least] support 4k screens at 60Hz, at 30hz it widens slightly to 4 models [the 2 mentioned before + current models of 13" rMBP and 27" iMac], so while 4k imacs will happen at some point, i think 4k on mac will be limited to external/additional monitors on the higher-end macs for the time being...

And it is not just hardware holding 4k back, some windows software is atrocious at supporting high res screens, http://www.hanselman.com/blog/LivingAHighDPIDesktopLifestyleCanBePainful.aspx
