Ryse: Son of Rome on PC will not support Mantle, Crytek’s Principal Rendering Engineer, Nicolas Schulz, has confirmed in a recent interview to our friend at DSOGaming. Nicolas assured fans not to take it in negative way as it won’t have any impact on the overall experience.
“Ryse is entirely based on DX11 and is shipping without Mantle support but this won’t have any negative impact on the experience.” said Nicolas.
Ryse: Son of Rome will launch on PC on October 10, 2014. The PC version of Ryse comes 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.
Finally, PC players also have instant access to the Ruins multiplayer map and the “Legionnaire’s Trust” sword initially released as part of a special edition of the game.
