Ryse's PC version removes microtransactions, adds DLC

Ryse: Son of Rome will not feature microtransactions in its PC version, due to launch on Oct. 10.

Developer Crytek noted the change in a blog post about features for this version. Four DLC packs that shipped separately for the Xbox One version will be made available, for free, all at once. The DLC added the Survival Mode to the game's multiplayer, plus more than a dozen maps and five additional skins.

The game also will feature advanced graphics support, which includes supporting 4K resolution.

Ryse's microtransactions on Xbox One allowed users to use real money to purchase in-game currency, which was then used to rank up their character's stats. Crytek's post didn't explain why this option was removed or whether it or Microsoft was behind the decision to do so.
