Crytek has a penchant for creating games that push a computer’s hardware to the absolute limit, often requiring you to upgrade your PC in order to play them. This made any Crytek game a visual benchmark, often looking to answer the question, “Can it run Crysis?”. Ryse: Son of Rome launched with the Xbox One last year, but only now making it’s 4K debut on PC. It boasts being scalable with native desktop UI resolutions, super sampling, anti-aliasing options, and more. While Ryse fails to rise to the occasion several times, it has a visual splendor that helps make up for its deficiencies.
Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PC this Fall. While Crytek will publish the game on digital channels, they will collaborate with the co-publishing partner Deep Silver for the boxed version distribution to retail stores. In addition, all of the Ryse: Son of Rome DLC packages that have been created and released since launch will be included in the PC version.
