Ryse: Son of Rome is a next generation launch title exclusively for the Xbox One. Developed by Crytek, the developers behind the Crysis series, you play the role of a Roman general named Marius Titus during the Roman wars against barbarian tribes. Combat in Ryse is driven by emotion, mastery, and flow. Players have multiple tools at their disposal including a sword, shield (for offensive as well as defensive), pila, and fellow combatants called legionaries. During combat you gain experience points and spend them in skill trees in order to upgrade Marious. Timing is everything in Ryse, the better your timing, the better “flow” your combat has and subsequently the more experience points you gain. While none are shown, Ryse also features quick time events and the use of Kinect to control you Roman legion. There is also a co-op and solo play in Gladiator mode which takes place in the legendary Coliseum. The Coliseum features dynamic randomized events always keeping you on your toes.
You can play Ryse: Son of Rome in all of its bloody glory when the Xbox One hits store shelves.
