Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome is now available for the PC, retailing through Steam and GameStop for $39. Originally released alongside the Xbox One in November 2013, Ryse was originally hailed as a console exclusive before being announced for PC this year.
The PC version includes all previously released DLC, which means four content packs, and some new graphical options such as 1080p resolution and even 4K resolution support. The game apparently “takes full advantage of the platform’s power and offers players the chance to experience the Roman Empire like never before” according to Crytek.
In terms of gameplay, Ryse: Son of Rome was originally criticized for its repetitiveness and the sheer unimaginative nature of combat, which boiled down to multiple QTE events in every fight.
