Ryse: Son of Rome Will Not be Ported to PC Down the Line, Will Not Have a Demo at Launch

During a livestream showing off Ryse: Son of Rome‘s multiplayer gameplay Senior Producer Justin Robey and Microsoft’s Senior Brand Manager Glenn Gregory dropped a couple pieces of information that will probably sadden CryTek’s PC-based fans and those that would like to try the game before purchasing it.

Answering two questions from the fans Robey responded with a rather clear cut “no” to both the possibility of a playable demo of the game made available at launch and of a possible PC port in the future.

So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth: if you want to play Ryse: Son of Rome, you’ll have to do so on Xbox One, and you’ll have to but it with no chance to try it beforehand.

    It’s not like anyone wanted to play it even on Xbone, after all, but well.

  • EX+

    They’re not missing much aside from Grfx grfx grfx.
    Crytek makes pretty looking games, but the gameplay is…sub-par.

    • neko working

      yeah, i saw mp footage and i’d say monster hunter is a loooot better than Ryse.

  • Sǯdi Sǻymeh

    yep only on X1 baby , where the good games belongs

  • Iain Chambers

    The last good game Crytek made was the first crysis its all downhill after

    • quinten488

      What? I loved Crysis 2, it was the first shooter that I actually cared about the story. Crysis 3 was short and disappointing,

      • ggyoufail

        Crysis 2 better then Crysis 3? Now on know you’re on drugs cause its better in almost every way possible. As for being better than 1, thats a matter of opinion.

        • Iain Chambers

          Lol to me crysis 2 and 3 was both rubbish but I would put 2 befor 3

      • Iain Chambers

        Come on story you had lockhart working for a company that makes nano suits but hates nano suits for no reason other then to be a antagonist the shoehorning of hargreave finding alien tech into the story and the “ghost in the machine” rubbish

    • Nicholas Perry

      LOL yeah sure, as if Crysis 1 wasn’t full of issues and problems.

      Every Crytek game is flawed. But they are all good.

  • You are flat out wrong

    No demo? That sounds promising.

    Looking forward to this car wreck of a game finally being released so I no longer have to pretend to care about it.

  • Jason Mounce

    No demo? This usually means one thing….heh.

    • Guest

      That’s because the entire game is just about standing in one spot and pressing the button to win. Basically if they let you play the demo, you’ve played the whole thing already. Heh.

    Honestly I never though Crytek were that great at making great games. Crysis 1 was the best for me, and that really became tedious as the game progressed (especially the alien sections). Crytek make amazing tech. This is their forte, and they would probably be best off doing an Unreal and selling that engine big-time. It became tiresome seeing so many UR3 engine games last gen, as most have the same kind of look to them.

  • It is time to Rise: This Fall, #Ryse: Son of Rome is coming to PC!



  • TTRUTH92

    I’m laughing right now.

    These days, you can’t trust that anything big game devs say. Its really sad.
