GamesCom – Ryse: Son of Rome Looking Good

Richard Sjoberg: "Ryse: Son of Rome is still in the developmental process, but things definitely seem to be ticking along quite nicely. The first thing I noticed when being shuffled into the room was that it looks to be an extremely pretty game, as is expected from any game running the Crytek engine.

They demo the developers from Crytek showed us was just a combat demo, demonstrating how combat is going to work in the game. You had two means of attack in the combat demo, by throwing a spear using the quick throw key, and the good old fashioned sword and shield that the Romans were famed for." (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

What region is this site from? Some confusion on the release date?

I watched lots of German gamers play this at Gamescon on youtube and they had a blast playing it. It does look fun.

3 months of fine tuning and polish will make this a AAA

The game is catching a lot of people by surprise. It is so unlike Crytek to make this type of game.

Buy I say let them keep working on it, then lets see what the final outcome reveals.

This game looks absolutely great. The coop in the colleseum is genius and the graphics are spectacular. Day 1 on X1 for me!

The only people that deny this game looks awesome are from the blue, square, x, circle, triangle side

The people denying this game are the ones who aren't interested, stop trying to point fingers at the competition. I know that I want to try Ryse at some point even though I'm getting a PS4.

If they arent interested, why do they keep rearing their heads into Ryse threads to regurgitate the same old agenda?

@thetruth, all games on xbox/ps4 one will require to pres X.A,B,Y, or Square, Triangle, X, and square.. so your comment is kinda dumb.

You seem insecure.

Relax. We're talking about games here, not consoles.

Seems fun, graphics are nice. I'd like to see a complete game play video of combat though if anyone can drop a link.

I agree. I kinda feel lots of PS fans are getting kinda jealous and its showing.

I'd like to play it. Looks good. I can appreciate it when other consoles get exclusives too lol. Don't know why some fans are butt hurt about this game. Does anybody say MAN I'M SO JEALOUS THAT MARIO ISNT ON PS4! I don't lol.

This is a new ip on a brand new system, I think ill wait to pass judgement on whether or not its a must buy. I think everyone needs to calm down. I truly think that we've seen maybe 5 minutes of gameplay footage that's been orchestrated for show.

It seems like the game is for the "300" crowd. Not my cup of tea.

If Ryse had actual multiplayer like 4v4, survival, ffa, and a dark souls / condemned combat system and didnt go overkill with f*cking slo mo I would buy it in a heartbeat.

If people buy this game and more like it in droves this generation... then we aren't progressing anywhere as gamers.

Imagine instead of a 4v4 there is instead 30v30. That would certainly be warlike

That would be epic, like defend the flag or something :D
