Ryse Producer Explains How The Xbox One Game Will Be Different From The E3 Demo

Spencer played Ryse: Son of Rome and while the Xbox One title had more realistic graphics, the combat seemed to focus too much on quick time events. The hands-on demo is exactly the same as the E3 demo where you control Marius Titus and charge into battle. You can attack with Marius’ sword by pressing X, bash enemies with your shield with the Y button, block with A, and press B to grab an enemy for an execution. In the hands-on demo, time slows down when you trigger an execution and button prompts pop up. Hit those in order and Marius will brutally finish off an enemy.

There you have it folks. Take the developers word that this was thrown together just to give a quick sense of the game, or just go on pretending that this is the final code and the game will be on the shelves next week. Your choice.

Colzer011490d ago (Edited 1490d ago )

This is how Ryse supposed to be (without the QTE):

And it's awesome, Crytek said the E3 build (the same build in Comic-Con) it's only the tip of the iceberg, they're gonna show the true gameplay at Gamescom

Convas1489d ago (Edited 1489d ago )

DAMN, that looks hawt. I knew there was more to this game and I'm glad I didn't buy into a lot of the unwarranted skepticism.

Then again, I've been excited for this game since it was announced as Codename: Kingdoms back in 2011 ...

HammadTheBeast1489d ago

You're such a hypocrite. Judging incomplete Knack and Drive club, yet believing that this gets a pass.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31489d ago

I can't believe that kotaku guy said this wasn't next-gen xD

Kanzes1489d ago

There's a gonna be a multiplayer too. It's gonna be like a gladiator fight. It would be cool though, I hope I can name my own character to Spartacus later

This right here is exactly what I wanted to see, no slowdown no button prompts just free flow cinematic combat. Can't wait to see the coliseum mode at gamescom.

JokesOnYou1489d ago

Colzer01 thanks that is freaking badass, the way they show off the combat the game defintely seems to be much more fluid in this vid.

What did you even just say?

"Take the developers word that this was thrown together just to give a quick sense of the game"

Why would you, at a massive gaming conference, the biggest one of the entire year, "throw something together".

You would make sure you give off the best impression you can, an impression so good you wouldn't even think of nitpicking things like the QTE or him always defending so easily with the tap of the A button.

Sorry but you just wouldn't throw it together...especially when it's been out of action for some time now and this is the first time showing it off in a while.

rdgneoz31490d ago

"This is why had need to do a deeper explanation because what we presented on the kit for E3 was being perceived as what the final game is going to be."

Yah, generally demos or presentations are meant to give off an impression of the final game... You figure if it was announced at E3 2011, they'd do a little more than just throw something together to give off the best impression possible.

loulou1490d ago

what like drive club? man that gave the impression of greatness to everyone....

i knew your comment would be negative before i even read it mr nuts. did you get lost on your way to a mark cerny we love you blog??

theWB271490d ago

Isn't that the same thing as showing a game that's 35% done? They gave way to thinking the game looked last gen with flat, low res textures and underwhelming lighting. Car animations aren't up to par either. Driveclub is what I speak of...see it's not too hard to fathom this happening with brand new systems hitting a launch deadline.

Sketchy_Galore1490d ago

I don't think you can blame people too much for expressing skepticism about a game based on a gameplay demo rather than thinking, 'On well the actual game will probably be nothing like this'. We're not talking about a few messy textures here or there or a few frame rate hiccups. We're talking about the way the game actually plays. Of course the game isn't finished yet and we should give it a chance to develop but I think it's a far more sensible reaction to look at a gameplay demo as being a demonstration of the way a game plays than watching it and thinking, 'Wow this gameplay demo reassures me that the game will be awesome when it is released and bears no resemblance to this'.

JokesOnYou1489d ago

I agree with you Sketchy Galore of course people SHOULD make assumptions about a game based on gameplay demos. Although I was excited initially about the demo after E3, later I said I was disappointed about how scripted the combat seemed, now I'm just glad Crytek knows this and promises there is alot more to the game than that, at least from the latest info from them, a few other sites and a couple of different vids I am very much optimistic.

AngelicIceDiamond1490d ago

I was literally just reading something similar somewhere else. Crytek has used the same level demonstration/kit since E3.

I think its time for Crytek to update the game and show off a different part of Ryse.

The game that we seen was just a "slice" indeed.

AceBlazer131489d ago

Yh I'll take the word of the guys who make a profit from the sales.Sure they would say if the demo was the final product and not make last minute adjustments due to the little bit of negativity

Thepharaoh1490d ago

Yeah.After so many years of making the game it was pretty obvious that it was just a little demo stage to give us a taste of what we were to see. Hopefully they'll show more in depth game play

HammadTheBeast1489d ago

Well, it originally started as a Kinect game for 360, so the long development time can be explained.

Neoninja1490d ago

Good interview, answered a lot of questions. I really can't wait to see more gameplay of Ryse and hear a tiny bit more about the story.

"Producer Explains How The Xbox One Game Will Be Different From The E3 Demo"

oh wont run on a pc with twogtx700 in sli?

turnerdc1489d ago (Edited 1489d ago )

Ryse was running on actual Xbox One hardware. Less than a minute of research would of told you that.

"Software running on genuine, visible Xbox One hardware falls in with a small first-party club, including titles like Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, Ryse and Dead Rising 3. Each plays at a promised 1080p native resolution, with the former two targeting 60fps as well, both of which show huge promise as launch titles, covering off the racing and fighting genres quite nicely."

Godz Kastro1490d ago
