Ryse: Son of Rome Fact Sheet Revealed

It’s no secret that the forthcoming Ryse: Son of Rome has altered drastically since we first saw it. Originally unveiled as an Xbox 360 title set to be exclusive to the Kinect full-body motion control device, last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) revealed an altogether different proposition. Clarifying the situation is a brand new fact sheet from the videogame’s publisher, Microsoft Studios. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Not old news.

This is what I hope they succesfully deliver :

"Relive the ruthless history of ancient Rome as you engage in raw close-quarters combat against the barbarian horde, utilizing both sword and shield as weapons to attack, counter, block and pull off brutal executions."

"Cooperative gladiatorial combat in the Coliseum"

"The cooperative multiplayer experience in “Ryse: Son of Rome” plunges you into the brutal world of gladiatorial combat, where you enter the Coliseum to fight side-by-side with your friends against an ever-changing array of enemies, to the roar of thousands of spectators."

-Crytek is doing some amazing things behind the scenes and working hard to really put together an impressive game...can't wait to see what they have at Gamescom.

If they have naval battles in the Colosseum, I would be so happy. And naval battles were what the colosseum was sometimes used for.

Wishful thinking. So what's your excuse gonna be when this game flops and gets horrid reviews?
iamnsuperman  +   513d ago
Right all you have to do now is show me that changes have been made since your E3 demo because that was one awful yet graphically good demo. At the moment i don't trust the "brutally intense combat" description

I want to see more environments. The characters looked spectacular, but the environment was really dull a grey. I think they might have their hands tied when it comes to art direction though since they're keeping with this realistic take on Roman history.

"Cooperative gladiatorial combat in the Coliseum"

That part sounds pretty fun. I hope it's done well. It would be cool if you could spectate as someone IN the Coliseum and decide what animals/people to send out to fight your friends.

Graphically, this game looked pretty good. But the gameplay doesn't look like a system seller

>"Gameplay doesn't look like a system seller"
>Gameplay...doesn't look
>play... look
>look

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that saying "Gameplay doesn't look" like something, carries about as much merit as saying "That song doesn't look all that great."

I think it's because all we've seen is game play.... most people haven't actually played it, so he couldn't say "feels" like.
NeoTribe  +   507d ago
Your logic is utterly rediculous. You can't see music... you CAN see gameplay... why do you think people WATCH gameplay trailers... its not to listen to it.
Maldread  +   513d ago
Hehe quite how technical you got Fireseed ;)

I think it`s okey to say that a video games dosn`t look like a system seller because we can see it being played. Hence the video game name.

Music is a lot harder to see of course. If it`s not a Juststine Blieber music video, and in that case it sucks hehe ;)

The gameplay demo that has been shown at E3, ComicCon and PAX Australia is an alpha version and is not a TRUE representation of the final build of the game.

This is what a developer had to say about Ryse at ComicCon in respect of the gameplay demo:

"A lot of the design elements and balancing weren’t even in there yet."

"We have to shrink things down. Get very straight forward, very easy, to get people into it."

"When you enter into an execution state, we are going to remove the button prompts that you saw in this version. And they are going to be replaced with visual and audio prompts that people are going to have to learn over time. We have like a hundred executions in the game."

This to me was a no brainer had to have it, so its brought and paid for along with my X1 and copy of DR3

Why are you disagreeing? Have seen anyone bashing Driveclub because it was 35% complete?
ThisIsSolidSnake  +   512d ago
i'm sorry but i cant stop laughing right now.
titletownrelo  +   512d ago
would love the game if its gameplay/combat wasnt so dependent on QTE. Takes "easy mode" to the next level. :P
MarkusMcNugen  +   512d ago
You must hate the God of War games then...
IRetrouk  +   512d ago
I think you mean he must hate god of wars boss fights.
MarkusMcNugen  +   512d ago
No... I mean the God of War games. QTEs are used for non-boss characters too. The minotaurs in at least the first game, the gorgons, the sirens... you dont have to use the QTEs for some of them but they are definitely there. They are used all over the space in God of War.
IRetrouk  +   511d ago
I do actually agree with you there are qtes in god of war but not to the extent of every encounter with an enemy, its just the way you worded it, made it seem like there is a qte every 5 seconds lol.
NeoTribe  +   507d ago
Marcus, god of war does it correctly. You mainly do a qte to finish a boss or finish a decently powerful foe. You have to first beat the living crap out of them. With ryse there's a qte after hitting a guy 2x. If gow was like that I would not play it. Gow actually takes skill and button mastery if you wanna compete in higher difficulties.

stilum super substantia.

Ryse fact: MS realized Kinect sucked and had to re-invent the game to use a controller instead of making it a next gen Kinect exclusive highlighting how great Kinect 2.0 is.

Ryse: Son Of Rome is looking greater with every new piece we receive. And seeing in pre-alpha makes wonder how much better the final built would be.

I'm not a game developer. However, this idea that they keep distancing a game from a final build to sell people on the idea that their problems will all be fixed annoys me. Ryse is in pre-alpha and it will be ready for certification in a month or two?

This isn't pointed directly at Ryse or just Microsoft. Driveclub is supposedly only 35% done. I just don't understand how a game can be so far from done and magically in a few months get completed.

Personally, I'm sure Ryse will change some but I don't think what we saw in the gameplay will change dramatically. I could be wrong, but I'm just stating my opinion.

ONce again Crytek have Rysen the bar
G20WLY  +   511d ago
It wasn't funny/clever the first time you said it.
jollygoodchap8  +   512d ago
Crytek sucks...blah blah...graphics hustlers/junk gameplay. Wait! Exclusive?!?! This game looks awesome!! /s
Agent_hitman  +   512d ago
To be honest guys I was impressed by this game on E3. I must admit
Phish  +   512d ago
I really hope this game will be good. To be honest this is the game that will decide if I get Xbox One on day 1.
ThisIsSolidSnake  +   512d ago
Fact #1

It sucks.
spicelicka  +   512d ago
This game better have tigers!!!!!!!
McScroggz  +   512d ago
This game really befuddles me. I can't wait til this game releases so I can actually know what the gameplay is like. I've heard all sorts of vague descriptions and euphemisms for QTE's and at the moment I'm not buying it.
