‘Ryse: Son of Rome’ launch trailer brings home the intense combat, tragedy of the battles

Microsoft Studios and Crytek released the launch trailer for “Ryse: Son of Rome” on Tuesday, and the dramatic video shows the game’s brutality and turmoil, reports Xbox Wire.

“Ryse: Son of Rome,” being released Friday exclusively for Xbox One, follows fearless Roman soldier Marius Titus as he defends Rome from the growing threat of invading barbarians – the same barbarians who murdered his family. He swears vengeance against them, but it comes at a huge personal cost: He is fighting for vengeance, but he also sees the corruption that has poisoned the empire he vowed to protect.

The trailer also shows Gladiator mode, where a player can enter the Colosseum and battle enemies either alone or next to a fellow gladiator using Xbox Live.

“Fueled by Crytek’s CRYENGINE and the power of Xbox One, ‘Ryse: Son of Rome’ brings the violence, chaos and depravity of ancient Rome to life with unprecedented cinematic realism,” Xbox Wire writes.
