New Xbox One Exclusive – Ryse: Son of Rome
Ryse: Son of Rome looks to offer a combination of strategy and third person combat with very detailed graphics. Looks sort of like if God of War met up with…I dunno, Age of Empires, maybe, but all in third person. Microsoft announced that this will be an Xbox One exclusive. You can fight as a soldier, lead as a general, or rise as a legend. The game is set in Ancient Rome, including the Coliseum’s combat arena.
The game was developed with CRYENGINE including new features like Crytek’s Virtual Camera hardware. This provides more directorial power than ever before, meaning developers can make lighting, environment and effects changes on the spot to create a more immersive game world. Ryse: Son of Rome appears to take full advantage of these technological developments.
