Earlier today new details were released for the upcoming Xbox One title, Ryse: Son Of Rome. The story will center on a young Roman soldier, Marius Titus, whose family was murdered at the hands of Barbarian hoards. The game will chronicle his rise through the ranks of the Roman military and his quest to seek vengeance.
In addition to the main story line, there will be a co-op multiplayer mode included in the game, in which gamers can fight each other online in a gladiator-style combat arena.
One of the more unique aspects of the Ryse: Son of Rome launch is the Ryse digital interactive comic book. The comic, Ryse: Sword of Damocles from the looks of things will feature several possibly overlapping storylines, with readers having the ability to choose which character’s perspective they want to read and influence events from. As of now the site and the comic are in development.
On top of the major plot points and comic book details, a long list of main characters was released, with a myriad of roles ranging from politicians to generals to kings.
Ryse: Son of Rome will be released at the Q4 2013 Xbox One launch, and will not see development across any other consoles.
Crytek have also released some new screenshots from the game. Check them out below.
