New, comments

Ryse: Son of Rome will hit Windows PC on Oct. 10, developer Crytek confirmed today.

The upcoming PC release will be available at a retail price of $39.99 and those who pre-order the game from retailers or Steam will also receive an exclusive digital copy of the official soundtrack.

The Xbox One-exclusive game will arrive on PC with all of its downloadable content and support for resolutions up to 4K. Developer Crytek will publish the game digitally, while Deep Silver will handle its retail release.

"We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support," said Carl Jones, director of business development at Crytek. "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."

Released last November alongside the Xbox One, Ryse takes place in ancient Rome, where a soldier named Marius must defend against barbarian hordes and uncover political intrigue.
