Ryse: Son of Rome is an action-adventure game that tells an epic tale of revenge spanning an entire lifetime. The story follows Marius Titus from his early childhood to his ascension to General in the Roman Army. Once you’ve seized power, you’ll work with the Roman infantry to enact your terrible vengeance, commanding your troops in ruthless battles and getting your hands dirty with quick-time-event finishing moves during combat.
Fifteen heroic, fully motion-captured characters have the same level of detail as Marius, and Ryse takes advantage of Microsoft’s Kinect by allowing players to control Marius while simultaneously directing his legion through Kinect voice commands. There will also be a co-op multiplayer mode, where players fight each other in a gladiator arena setting.
