Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome was originally released as an exclusive to the Microsoft Xbox One platform. However it was later revealed that the game would be arriving on the PC as well, although according to a recent post on Crytek’s blog, the PC version of the game will see some changes made to it.
For starters Crytek has stated that microtransactions will be a feature missing from the PC version of the game. The four DLCs that shipped separately for the Xbox One are also to be made available for the PC all at once, and for free as well. The DLCs basically add a Survival Mode to the multiplayer feature of the game, as well as introduce new skins and a host of new maps.
The PC version of the game will also feature more advanced graphics support, which we have to say coming from the developer of the Crysis franchise isn’t all that surprising. The PC version will also be able to support the 4K resolution, so for those gamers out there with 4K displays, we guess you guys will be able to take advantage of it.
Now it is interesting to see the changes being made to the PC version of the game. Unfortunately Crytek did not mention why they were making the changes and whether or not it could be because Microsoft had asked them to. In any case the game has been pegged for a release on the 10th of October, so given the advanced graphics support, you still have some time to upgrade your PC before then.
