Crytek reveals it will be porting Ryse: Son of Rome to Windows PC later this fall, promising a definitive version of the Xbox One title which originally launched alongside the console platform last November.
The beleaguered studio believes it still has a good thing going with the CRYENGINE leveraged by Ryse, maintaining it has the "means and technology" to deliver a "benchmark PC graphics showcase" right down to support for 4K resolution. Currently that entails having a 3840 x 2160 px monitor handy, but Crytek seems earnest enough to bring some honor to the hack-and-slash title set in the conveniently dark and gritty times of the ancient Roman Empire.
Ryse on PC is currently slated for a fall 2014 release in both physical boxed and digital download formats, likely without Kinect as a requirement to Become Legendary this time around. The PC version will feature all the DLC from the Xbox One release including the Colosseum, Mars’ Chosen, Duel of Fates, and Morituri Packs, as well as the bonus items originally limited to the special edition release of the game.
