Subscribe To Ryse PC System Requirements Clarified By Crytek Updates
Earlier this week Crytek released system requirements for the PC version of Ryse. However, they announced this weekend that these requirements weren't entirely accurate.

The confusion stems from the recommended requirements. Initially the recommended specs they posted on Steam were for 4K resolution. That gave players the impression that they would need a really high-end system just to run Ryse with good quality visuals.

To clarify things, Crytek broke down the official system requirements into three categories:

Minimum:
  • CPU: Dual core with HyperThreading technology or quad core CPU
  • Examples: Intel Core i3 2.8 GHz (3220T) or AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 GHz (945)
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • GPU: DirectX 11 graphics card with 1 GB video RAM
  • Examples: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7770
  • OS: 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8)
  • HDD: 26GB
Recommended:
  • CPU: Quad Core or Six Core CPU
  • Examples: Intel Core i5 3.3 GHz (2500k) or AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: DirectX 11 graphics card with 2 GB video RAM
  • Examples: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660Ti or AMD Radeon 260x or 7850
  • OS: 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8)
  • HD: 26GB
Recommended for 4k gameplay:
  • CPU: Quad Core or Eight Core CPU
  • Examples: Intel Core i7 3.5 GHz (2700k) or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU: DirectX 11 graphics card with 4 GB video RAM
  • Examples: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780/ Titan or AMD Radeon 290x
  • OS: 64 bit Windows (Vista, 7, 8)
  • HD: 26GB
Ryse tells the story of Marius Titus, a Roman soldier. His journey to protect the Roman Empire will take him from the streets of Rome to the wilderness of Britannia and back. He'll usually be on his own, defeating groups of enemies with his sword and shield. However, he'll also command other troops at times to turn the tide of the battle.

The game also features a co-op gladiator mode. Two players can enter the Colosseum to defeat hordes of enemies together. Ryse's PC version comes with all the DLC released for the original Xbox One version, including new maps, character skins and a survival mode. This amounts of 26 different multiplayer maps.

I personally wasn't thrilled with Ryse when I played it on Xbox One. The game looks great but it gets repetitive thanks to all the Quick Time Event executions. The PC version's not going to fix that. Still, it sounds like it's going to be the better version at least thanks to the improved visuals and included DLC. Plus the game is $39.99 on PC, making it significantly cheaper than its Xbox One counterpart.

Ryse will launch on PC on October 10th. You can pre-purchase through Steam to get the full soundtrack for free. You can check out one sample song from the soundtrack here.
