Xbox One Exclusive No Longer, Ryse Comes to PC Today

Crytek's 2013 action game hits PC today through download stores.


Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome is no longer exclusive to that console, as the PC version of Crytek's action game was released today through various download stores, including Steam and GameStop. You can buy it today for $39.

We've already hear about the multitude of graphics options Ryse players on PC will have access to, and Crytek did not hold back today in heralding the game's launch for computers.

"Ryse for PC takes full advantage of the platform's power and offers players the chance to experience the Roman Empire like never before with dazzling 4K resolution support," the studio said in a statement.

In Ryse, you play as Marius Titus as you work your way through the Empire seeking to avenge your slain family. In addition to a single-player mode, Ryse for PC features cooperative online play that lets you adventure alongside fellow gladiators.

Ryse for PC includes all four DLC packs released for Xbox One, as well as new characters skins. In addition, the PC version of Ryse does not have microtransactions like the Xbox One version. A PC launch trailer for Ryse is available to watch above.

Microsoft published Ryse for Xbox One, but Crytek is publishing the PC version. Meanwhile, a disc-based physical PC version of Ryse will be available at retailers through a partnership with Saints Row and Dead Island publisher Deep Silver.
