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.
