Crytek release Ryse: Son of Rome PC system requirements, again

Ryse: Son of Rome

Although it was good news that Ryse: Son of Rome was heading its way to PC, the system requirements detailed by Crytek on the Steam store page left a lot to be desired. Vague at best, the details resulted in a lot of people wondering if they could run the game at all, which Crytek have said will even support 4K resolutions.

Don’t worry though. Crytek have posted on the games Steam forums with much more detailed system requirements, so you can see how it’ll shape up to your PC.

Crytek developer MarcelH took to the forums to quell the confusion. “Since there was some initial confusion about the System Requirements (as we originally posted the specs needed for 4k as recommended on the Store page),” said MarcelH. “We wanted to give you a bit more insight into the system requirements to run the game and some examples of fitting CPUs and GPUs in the three categories.”

Here they are:

Examples: Intel Core i3 2.8 GHz (3220T) or AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 GHz (945)

Memory: 4 GB RAM
