Crytek and Deep Silver have announced that the once Xbox One exclusive Ryse is coming to PC this fall. There has been speculation on this for some time, especially given that the game isn’t making Crytek any money, or at least not enough to stem the tide of their current financial troubles.
Now with Deep Silver using their much deeper pockets to fund the show, the game will be hitting PC with all currently available DLC, 4K resolution support, unlocked frame rates and more to really take advantage of the incredible graphics technology that the game uses.
There is no doubt about it, Ryse looks freaking awesome in terms of visuals, it’s Crytek after all, the guys know how to push some impressive polygon levels. The only issue I had was the game doesn’t exactly offer much in the way of entertainment, although the franchise does show promise.
We are bringing the Ryse experience to PC, with 4K resolution support. 4K gaming is another leap in graphics quality for PC gamers and Ryse is the perfect showcase for what’s now possible in high-end PC games. We’ve given our team the opportunity to show what CRYENGINE can really achieve, without compromising quality, thanks to the incredible hardware available now to PC gamers. Ryse will be a benchmark PC graphics showcase this year and probably for a long time in future. Our community asked for a Ryse PC version, and we have the means and technology to deliver this title with the highest quality possible. Said Carl Jones, Crytek’s Director of Business Development in a recent press release.
The game looked great with 900p @ 30fps, but the prospect of 60fps 4K, assuming you have a monster rig that can do it. As you can see from the gallery below, the slight blur has gone in favour of pin sharp edges, nice!
Now let’s look at an Xbox One screenshot and you can see that while the game still looks great, it’s certainly rougher around the edges.
