German website Hardwareluxx revealed that Crytek’s upcoming PC version of Ryse: Son of Rome will support AMD’s Mantle API. This obviously does not surprise us as most – if not all – future CRYENGINE-powered games will support this API. After all, we believe that this was one of the reasons Crytek decided to implement native support for Mantle in CRYENGINE.
Ryse will support 4K resolutions and aims to look glorious on the PC. In addition, the PC version of Ryse will come with bonus material originally released as downloadable content, including: The Colosseum Pack containing two character skins and two Arena maps; the Mars’ Chosen Pack containing one new character skin, four Arena maps, and the new Survival mode; the Duel of Fates Pack containing two character skins, two Arena maps, and one additional Survival map; and the Morituri Pack, with three new Arena maps, two Survival maps, and five solo Arena maps.
Ryse: Son of Rome is currently planned for a Fall 2014 release on the PC.
We’ve already contacted Crytek and we’ll have a tech interview about this game in the coming months, so stay tuned for more!
Ryse won’t support AMD’s Mantle after all. Read our full interview with Crytek’s Nicolas Schulz for more information!
