God of War Dev “Loves Some of the Stuff” in Ryse: Son of Rome – Crytek

Producer Michael Read talks about comparisons to Sony’s hack and slash epic.

Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome has been criticized for many things – using “only” a 900p resolution, an abundance of QTEs in its E3 debut presentation; the controversy over crunching periods in development – but one thing the developer has never been worried about is being compared to God of War.

It might not be easy to see at first, considering that both games are bloody hack-and-slash actioners and differ entirely in terms of presentation, story and overall mechanics. But it is easy to see the treatment of the action and QTEs in Ryse and automatically think of God of War.

Speaking to 3News, Crytek producer Michael Read stated that, “The guys on the development team are big fans of God of War. I’ve talked to a lot of the God of War guys too and they love some of the stuff we’ve created. We definitely love some of the stuff they’ve created. Their combat system is much different, it’s a faster pace than what we have, with a lot of combos and wacky stuff going on. We’re a more slowed-down melee combat system. But there’s a lot of praise going back and forth and we’re very aware of each other’s games.”

Will Ryse: Son of Rome rise above its controversies and be the launch title the Xbox One needs? We’ll find out when it releases on November 22nd.

    As one of the few Xbox games of note that isn’t a shooter, I’m uber excited for Ryse.

    • Slay

      Ps4 has no games.

    • Play

      Go back to being your tragic self and leave the video game hobby to “real” men, hunny.

    • Jason Mounce

      And yet PS4 comically will have more exclusives by the End of the year and early 2014 than X1 will have in a whole year….

    • Slay

      Have fun waiting. The delays are inevitable.

    • Jason Mounce

      So because One Game was delayed, Driveclub, ‘ALL’ or many will be delayed?

      Interesting logic you got that. Not that I ever believed Xbox Fanboy type of wannabe trolls had logic to begin with.

    • Slay

      2 games were delayed… which was basically the system’s line-up. Have fun waiting for hopes and promises. I’ll be getting slayed by the xbox one’s power. It’s doing it for the gods, hunty!

    • Jason Mounce

      And what is this 2nd game that’s been delayed you speak of?

      Your choice of words makes me question who would even upvote your original comment with as much ignorance as you have.

    • Slay

      Slayed hunty slayyyyed!

    • Jason Mounce

      Lol, let me guess. You’re embarrassed because you were aiming to say ‘Watchdogs’ only to think HMMM. It’s a multiplatform game after…

      Am I right kiddo? 😀

    • Slay

      It only does indies 😉

    • Jason Mounce

      Indies ‘and’ the around 20+ First-party teams that have yet to announce what project/game they’re working on for the PS4. 😉

      I get the feeling that as Sony drops the names of all of the exclusive games, people like you would crawl back in your caves :P. Talking trash without realizing “Hmm, the only developers under Sony’s belt who’ve shown their games is Guerrilla Games, Ready at Dawn, Suckerpunch, and Evolution Studios. Other than those 4, the rest are Third-party and Indie.

      Who’s being left out that you’re ignorantly avoiding?

      http://www.gamepur.com/news/11533-what-are-sonys-studios-and-partners-are-working-ps4.html

      Here you go. You just got Slain.

    • Slay

      All those studios are irrelevant. Sounds like you need some standards. Would you like that shipped Fedex or UPS?

    • Jason Mounce

      Irrelevant? In comparison to who? Rare with Microsoft?

      I don’t think I need to feed you anymore attention, you don’t even have a shred of intelligence. You basically are the definition of a drone.

      I’m done slaying you. Go pester someone else. Also, it’s WAY past your bedtime.

    • Slay

      You’re still replying?

    • 123

      Sony studios are irrelevant to X1 games. It doesn’t matter that Uncharted 3 sold more than the Halo series combined. X1 should take over those studios and make them relevant to Xbox only.

    • Slay

      LOL it did not sell more than any Halo game or halo combined. Halo is the second top selling video game is history behind GTA 5. Clueless gamers these days…

    • Slay

      You just got slayed again hunty!

    • Guest

      X1 doesn’t have any indie games. Which is why Microsoft had opened a self-publishing indie games program. But all the indie programmers choose PS4. X1 should stop their indie program and allow only AAA games.

    • Carlos

      Dude stop talking out of your ass and do some research kid. Xbox One is coming out with Indies in case you didn’t watch e3 or gamescom. Now I don’t know if you meant Microsoft studios because that’s a totally different subject

    • BWest

      hes trolol

    • Slay

      I’m rightrightright.

    • Carlos

      Xbox only has two shooters coming out, however I don’t know what category to put sunset overdrive in.

    • KuchikiSentou

      I did say games “of note”.
      Most of the games announced at E3 have gone under the radar. I forget most of them.

  • Slay

    Anyone and everyone will get Ryse. It’s coming to slay all of your favorites. Glad GOW dev is a fan. They should take notes of the awesomeness that is Ryse.

    • Play

      Meanwhile, all the Xbox games will be in the bargain bin.

  • jflex

    This game is going to be better than all the other launch games including ps4 launch titles.

  • Slay

    I’m gay, hunty’s! My butt’s open for business!
