Ryse: Son Of Rome PC Release Date And System Requirements Announced

1

According to the game’s official Steam page Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PCs on October 10th with a price tag of £34.99.

The PC release of the previously Xbox One “exclusive” Ryse: Son of Rome will come with full 4k support, for those with compatible screens and hardware capable of handling so many pixels. It’ll also come packaged with every pieces of DLC thus far released:  the Colosseum Pack, the Mars’ Chosen Pack, the Duel of Fates Pack and the Morituri Pack. The PC version also provides instant access to the Ruins multiplayer map, as well the Legionnaire’s Trust sword, both of which were initially bundled with the special edition  Xbox One version of game.

The Steam page also revealed the minimum and recommended system specs, and despite how good the game on console looks they are actually relatively forgiving:

Minimum:

  • OS: Windows Vista SP1, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel Dual-Core 2.8 GHz/ AMD Dual-Core 3.2 GHz or better
  • Memory: 4GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB video RAM
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 26GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible Sound Card with latest drivers

Recommended:

  • OS: Windows Vista SP1, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel Quad-Core or AMD Octo-Core
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 4GB video RAM
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Hard Drive: 26GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX compatible Sound Card with latest drivers

If you’re looking at the recommended specs and puzzling over the need for 4GB of VRAM, then keep in mind that these high-end requirements are based on users wanting the full 4K experience. If you plan on playing at the more common 1080p a 2GB card should suffice.

You may have noticed one flaw with the requirements, though: it’s a bit vague on what sort of graphics card you’re going to be needing. All the requirements demand are at least 1GB of VRAM and DirectX11 support, potentially leaving a lot of people wondering if their GPU will be able to handle the game.
