In Rome, the Coliseum was the heart and soul of the city; in “Ryse: Son of Rome,” it becomes the stage where you’ll forge your path to glory as a fearless gladiator. Take to the sands cooperatively with your friends and do battle against an ever-changing horde of enemies. Check out the official gamescom video.
Plunging you into the brutal world of gladiatorial combat, Gladiator Mode lets you relive the intense and brutal battles of the Colosseum as you fight cooperatively with your friends against an ever-changing array
of enemies to the roar of thousands of spectators.
The New CryENGINE delivers stunning visuals at a scale never before seen
on a console. New cloth and hair physics are combined with staggeringly
smooth animation to ensure every move you make feels more authentic.
Reflections on weapons and armor react to tiny dents and changing light
conditions, while the refraction of light through water adds to the
sense of realism.
Ryse Son of Rome Features
Be Your Own Hero. “Ryse” offers a large variety of armor, weapons, shields, and consumables to customize your own unique gladiator. These items are earned through gold rewarded from victories in combat and impact your stats by improving your focus, XP, crowd reaction, and health. Consumables are elixirs that have a temporary effect, such as improving health or allowing instant kills.
Dynamic Tile Sets. Inspired by the movable floor pieces used to re-create historic battles in the ancient Colosseum, “Ryse” uses dynamic “tile sets” of scenery to provide a continuous stream of unpredictable challenges. Scenery hidden
in the hypogeum literally erupts from the floor, providing players with settings ranging from strongholds, to ruins, to naval battles.
Custom Challenges and Arenas.
“Ryse” allows you to create your own experiences by using the challenge editor to mix and match the maps and events into custom playlists. Each challenge has its own leaderboard and the more players who have
played, the higher the reward at the end of the challenge.
Courtyard is an open environment highlighting the dynamic nature of the Colosseum. With each wave new dangers are introduced to the Arena, from flaming pits, to deadly traps, to automated catapults.
Stronghold shows off the ability to completely change the environment, re-creating a battle between Roman forces and the barbarian hordes in the distant pagan lands of Germania.
