Ryse: Son of Rome was released in November 2013 as an Xbox One launch title published by Microsoft. Official sales numbers for the game have not been announced, but Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said earlier this year that the company is "not 100 percent happy with Xbox One sales."

The PC version of Ryse: Son of Rome was announced in August. It will support 4K resolution and include every piece of add-on content released on Xbox One to date. This includes a long list of content like the Colosseum Pack, the Mars Chosen Pack, the Duel of Fates Pack, the Morituri Pack, the Ruins multiplayer map, Survival mode, and the Legionnaire's Trust sword that was initially released as part of the game's special edition.

Crytek will publish the digital version of Ryse: Son of Rome for PC, while Saints Row and Dead Island publisher Deep Silver is handling the physical version.

Ryse: Son of Rome is the second high-profile Xbox One launch title headed to PC. The other is Capcom's Dead Rising 3, which launches on PC tomorrow, September 5.
