No one really expected this one, but Crytek has surprised everyone with the announcement that their previously Xbox One exclusive title Ryse: Son of Rome will now be heading to the PC front, complete with 4K resolution support.
Crytek are handling the digital side of things themselves, with publishing partner Deep Silver pulled in for the boxed version. As mentioned previously, the PC port will support 4K resolution, and will also contain the various past DLC that Ryse's Xbox One version received. This includes five new skins, 11 Arena maps, and five solo Arena maps, along with the new survival mode and three additional maps. The PC version also contains the special edition bonuses, which include the Ruins multiplayer map and 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," Crytek business development chief Carl Jones said.
"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."
