WATCH: Fight for Rome in Ryse launch trailer

November 19th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

One of 23 Xbox One launch titles, Ryse: Son of Rome tells the story of Marius Titus, a young Roman soldier seeking to avenge the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits. But as Marius ascends the ranks of Roman command, he realizes he must return from the battlefields of Europe to the heart of Rome to overcome an even more dangerous threat to the Empire.

Microsoft has revealed plans to release four Ryse DLC packs for Gladiator, which is a co-operative multiplayer mode. Available at a discounted rate as part of a season pass, the game add-ons will contain a total of 14 multiplayer maps, a new mode, six player skins, fresh level events, and access to a new tier of weapons and armor.

What do you think of Ryse?

Xbox One releases on November 22, 2013.
