Ryse PC release date and system requirements revealed

Former Xbox One-exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PC , and it will probably look pretty good, what with it being developed by Crytek and everything. But how beastly of a PC will we need in order to a) run it in the first place, and b) make it look halfway decent? These are questions that have answers waiting on the game's newly minted Steam page . Other answers include the release date, which is set for October the 10th.

You'll remember that Crytek is self-publishing the digital version of Ryse, while Deep Silver is handling the boxed release. According to the Steam page, Ryse will launch on October 10th, for £34.99 in the UK, and $39.99 in the US. That's...that's some annoying exchange-rating. PC buyers will get all the bonus content from the Xbox One version, plus 4K resolution support.
