Crytek's Ryse confirmed as an Xbox One exclusive

As expected, Crytek's Ryse is an Xbox One game.

An update on developer Crytek's website confirmed the news alongside a countdown that ends during Microsoft's E3 press conference in June.

"Exclusively for Xbox One" reads the website. "Fight as a soldier. Lead as a general. Rise as a legend."

Then: "Controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect," which suggests you'll be able to play the game with pad in hand. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Don't forget Quantum Break and the Black Tusk game

Not to mention that they will most definitely push Kinect 2.0 with at least one new IP.

Edit: Well, Ryse could already be the title with which they want to push it.

So Ryse, Quantum Break, Forza, probably a new Halo. That's 4 so far.

After yesterday's showing of Xbox One, Crytek has to be nuts to do anything exclusively on that system.

The trailer makes it look like it's mainly a Kinect game, and I could see this being the long-awaited hardcore title playable through motion control. On the other hand, it looks like a lot of work, I'm lazy, and I'd rather sit on my couch and use a regular controller.

For what a year?
mega31  +   773d ago
If it was a year im sure it would have said Timed Exclusive
MysticStrummer  +   773d ago
Bioshock was called an exclusive, not a timed exclusive.
Ashlen  +   773d ago
W/E, i'm not buying it.
dark_101  +   773d ago
Nah its just you. I think Crytek is a great developer and I cant wait to see what can they do with next gen hardware using their engine.
r21  +   773d ago
Called it! Really interested in how Ryse will work now, considering Kinext is vastly improved so lag is non-near existent as far as I could tell from this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

It could be something awesome that mixes motion control with controllers. Think Steel Battalion Kinect edition but actually working controls.

Look forward to seeing what they can do with this game as the Kinect 2 is looking like it will be able to do everything Project Natal did in the Promo video.

Interesting times in the Gaming industry again as Sony Microsoft and Nintendo are all going different directions and offered us different ways to play.
DiRtY  +   773d ago
So we know 3 out of the 15 exclusives so far:

Forza 5
Ryse
Quantum Break

That would be quite a launch lineup with

BF 4
CoD
Fifa
UFC
Madden

Plus MS confirmed that Black Tusk and Rare will reveal launch games as well.
mega31  +   773d ago
Halo obviously will be another one thats 4, gears maybe so 5
the worst  +   773d ago
o well that sucks
JohnApocalypse  +   773d ago
I hope it doesn't use Kinect. How did Steel Battalion and Fable: The Journey sell?
mega31  +   773d ago
Not good i hear, but in all honesty, why bother saying we have 15 exclusives when its kinect games? its kinda obvious Kinect is exclusive cause well its only on xbox lol. i think those 15 are mostly real games, no point in saying OH this kinect game ONLY on xbox well yea cause kinect is ONLY on xbox you dont need to mention exclusive there
urwifeminder  +   773d ago
Looking very forward to this game more info should be here soon woo hoo.

It's a better with Kinect game. We still don't know exactly what that means with this title but Skyrim on 360 was better with Kinect and it was awesome.

I laughed when they revealed the legendary edition of Skyrim about a month ago. You could tell all the people who never played a 360 were like "Better with Kinect, WTF? Sounds stupid"...And how wrong they were.
Typical-Guy  +   773d ago
That might be the case but when they announced the game it was a Kinect game, now they're saying a better with Kinect! Okay, I'll see what they can make of this.
Jek_Porkins  +   772d ago
Actually two years ago they said you could use Kinect, but that they wanted people to be able to experience it with a controller as well.

I could see Kinect being an option, we heard if you bring up your controller a shield could come up, or it might be a mini game option, we just don't know yet.
give everything a chance, we still haven't seen gameplay yet

being skeptical is reasonable though

That trailer sucked. Kinect sucks. Used game fees suck. Having to connect to the internet once a day sucks. The Xbox One sucks.
Jek_Porkins  +   773d ago
Nice, and they mentioned two years ago that Ryse was going to use a standard controller. So maybe Kinect will be optional? I do know the new Kinect looks like it works so much better than the original.

More games and options are always good.
