    Ryse: Son of Rome coming to PC this fall, with 4K resolution boost

    source

    Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PC this Autumn/Fall, Crytek has announced. They'll be publishing the digital version themselves, while Deep Silver will be distributing boxed copies of the game. Either way, you'll be getting all the DLC to date, along with the content from the special edition of the game. More excitingly, 4K resolution will be supported in the PC version, giving PC Gamer's Ben Griffin another game to ogle for his showcase.
    Roman legion stab-'em-up Ryse wasn't particularly well received for its apparently simplistic combat, but it seemed to fare better as a visual showcase for the Xbox One. Now that it's been unshackled from that console, Crytek are of the opinion that it will be a "benchmark PC graphics showcase this year and probably for a long time in future".
    The included DLC will comprise a bunch of character skins and arena maps, along with the Survival mode, instant access to the Ruins map, and a sword that was previously only bundled with the special edition.
    Given Crytek's recent troubles, and mysterious recovery, a port of an existing game makes a lot of sense. Ryse is heading to PC sometime in the next few months, and it looks like this:


    Well there goes another xbox game

    4K? Imagine how good this game will look at 4K...

    I presume a lot of the bugs will be gone due to being on PC too? Too bad I'll not get to play it without a great PC.

    Doe the 4k support mean they are increasing the texture resolutions or something?

    Wow. That is... a real bummer for the Xbox.

    I'll probably pick it up on sale. The game seemed okay.

    That's good, I've always wanted to try this game.
    But it's bad for Microsoft, why should you still buy an Xbox One when all the exclusives also release for PC? :/

    If you are a shooter maniac but only can aim with a cross analog...maybe?

    Meh, would be interesting to see how this game looks when being ran at higher resolutions and maximum settings however I don't think anyone was actually crying out for it.

    Now the one I am interested in is Halo MC collection which has been rumoured but no one denying it just yet. Now that I really want.

    I love how the buzzword nowadays for games is "4k resolution supported" - well duh! I have been able to play any game on the PC at that resolution including some 90's classics (but in 4:3 format). So are they saying that because they support a 4K resolution it means that it's now special?

    Probably using '4k' as a small dagger to MS ribs given the fact a lot of xbox games aren't even achieving 1080p. Wasn't ryse on xbox only 900p?

    This. Halo is all I want from the Xbox's side, and it's only the older games. I would love to have those remastered on PC.

    Yes Halo CE remastered on PC would be great, I loved it back then on my Pentium4 512MB RAM.
    I played it just the other day and it looks weird, TIs running at well over 60FPS but the animations look jittery and sub 30FPS when playing online, its awful.

    I've only ever played Halo on the Xbox but always thought it felt like it would play perfectly with a Mouse and Keyboard - as every shooter does. Would happily play though them all again like that if I could.

    No, but if they made art in higher resolution from the beginning there is really no reason why they couldn't use them. (well, outside download bandwidth. )
