Another Xbox One exclusive heads to PC

Ryse: Son of Rome will be making its way to PC later this year, according to the recently troubled developer, Crytek. The Xbox One launch title will be self-published on PC by Crytek digitally, while Deep Silver will head up a boxed retail version of the game.

Ryse is the perfect showcase for what’s now possible in high-end PC games, says Crytek

As one would expect, the PC version may be the best version of Ryse: Son of Rome. The PC release will support 4K Resolution, and include all of the previously released downloadable content for the game. This includes a number of add-ons for the game’s Colosseum Mode.

“Ryse is the perfect showcase for what’s now possible in high-end PC games,” according to Crytek business development head Carl Jones. Last year at launch, Ryse: Son of Rome received a lot of praise for its visuals, with many claiming the game to be the best looking of the offerings on either the Xbox One or PS4, and that was not at a native 1080p resolution.

Xbox One has had a hard time holding on to exclusivity over the last year. Almost all of the best games on the platform are now available on PC, aside those solely owned by Microsoft. Titanfall was available on PC at launch. While Dead Rising 3 is coming to PC later this year, and now, you can add Ryse to that list as well.
