Deep Silver has announced that it will be co-publishing Crytek’s Ryse: Son Of Rome for PC with release due this autumn. The publisher will handle the physical release of the game while the studio will take care of all things digital. This publishing deal may have come as part of the terms for when Deep Silver bought the Homefront IP, though that’s speculation until otherwise confirmed by either side.
The PC version of Ryse: Son Of Rome will be contain all the DLC that has been released since the game’s Xbox One launch in November, including The Colosseum, Mar’s Chosen,Duels Of Fates, and Moituiri packs. Ryse on PC will also be pushing for 4K resolution, which was confirmed by Crytek’s Carl Jones.
“We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support. 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. “
I’ve been quite curious about Ryse though haven’t had the opportunity to play it, so I may end up buying this to scratch my itch for a game set in Ancient Rome.
