Ryse: Son of Rome will launch for PC on October 10, the game's listing on Steam has revealed.

Developer Crytek is self-publishing the digital edition, which is priced £34.99.

PC gamers can look forward to some graphical improvements over the version which launched alongside the Xbox One, notably support for 4K resolution.

"We've given our team the opportunity to show what CryEngine can really achieve, without compromising quality, thanks to the incredible hardware available now to PC gamers," noted Crytek when it announced the PC edition.

"Ryse will be a benchmark PC graphics showcase this year and probably for a long time in future. Our community asked for a Ryse PC version, and we have the means and technology to deliver this title with the highest quality possible."

The game's Steam listing has also revealed the minimum and recommended system specifications. Given the game's origin as an Xbox One title, it's not surprising to see it'll run on pretty modest systems.
