Published: Monday, October 21, 2013Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Microsoft Studios and Crytek released two new trailers that share new plot details about “Ryse: Son of Rome,” the action-packed Xbox One exclusive video game launching with the console on Nov. 22.

“Ryse: Son of Rome” follows Marius Titus, a fearless Roman soldier who embarks on a quest for vengeance against the barbarian bandits who murdered his family, which will take him from the distant shores of Britannia to the heart of Rome.

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.

The cinematic tells the story of Damocles, a Roman centurion who was betrayed by corrupt Roman generals and left to die on the battlefield, and then returns from the Underworld to exact his revenge.

In “Ryse: Son of Rome,” Marius learns of Damocles’ story when his father gifts him a dagger bearing the centurion’s emblem, shortly before he and the rest of Marius’ family are slain  by a group of barbarians who invade their villa. Marius sets out to avenge his family, carrying with him the Damocles dagger. The legend of Domacles will guide Marius on his journey of vengeance.
