Ryse: Son of Rome's Combat Used to Enhance 'Emotional Journey'

Josiah Renaudin: Ryse: Son of Rome, the Xbox One-exclusive title coming from Crytek, isn’t just a mindless hack-and-slash title without any sort of emotion. Actually, Crytek president Cevat Yerli doesn’t even want people to refer to the graphically flashy experience as a “hack and slash,” as the realistic battles and human-on-human violence calls for a term less fantastical. This “combat game” is aiming to be more than just another violent romp through a unique era, and Yerli is looking to accomplish that goal through the addition of a poignant, emotional narrative. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Yeah if the story lives up to everything they've shown and said so far this will be a helluva game.

Good luck Crytek isn`t known for it`s stories especially not the last 2 Crysis games.

Well its a good thing they aren't just throwing Ryse together on their own, they've actually brought in a lot of outside talent to go with their strength in visuals, also to be fair while I hope this gen we will see it change unfortunately a lot shooters aren't known for their great stories where as action games tend to lean on this aspect more:

The cowriter and art director is Peter Gornstein a film/TV guy brought in to produce a great story. In the past has also worked as Concept and Lead concept artist at IO Interactive, Imageworks at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

All the script dialogue in game was done by accomplished theatrical actors.

They brought in Christian Eckert a Roman Combat Expert.

Performance capture by Andy Serkis's Up to 12 actors were simultaneously captured, using 127 cameras.

vvvvv Hicken theres plenty of background on the story and characters but what else do you want to know? Personally I prefer just the setting and background so everything is fresh the 1st time I play it.

I would play this game for months just to hear the sound of the swords. These sound effect on X1 are so crisp and clean. This game and Forza just sound so good in these demo's.
Hicken  +   199d ago
So why haven't we seen it? There's virtually nothing known about the story. Everything we know about the game is related to its graphics and the rocky road that aspect is taking as it nears launch.

The game started with the wrong foot. Bad publicity after another. Lying pr doesn't help either.

They could show a 1 minute trailer. 30 seconds for the ACTUAL gameplay and 30 for story...

Taking the GTA V approach.
iamnsuperman  +   198d ago
Except that is a bad approach unless it is a game like GTA. To make that approach effective you need to have a massive following anyway few games can achieve.

I actually appreciate games that have very little of the story revealed before released.....leaves something to be desired.

Lately games have been showing too much before release..IMO

I hope they don't, I hate spoilers in trailers these days, I probably won't even get to play Ryse in the end as i'm not getting an Abone, but still. Som devs give away half of the story in trailers, like SE with FFXXIII. Better to just hear what reviewers have to say about the story. If its anything above ordinary H&S.

I actually prefer finding out less about the story besides the general idea. Instead of what japanese devs do, basically spoiling the most useful scenes.

There's nothing known about most games that haven't been released yet Hicken. And yet we have seen more of this game than almost any other game coming this launch.

I love this overwhelming pressure of information you love to put on MS and it's games only?

Yes the only thing we have been hearing are the graphics that have been blown way out of proportion by the media and most of the commenters here.

There was an interactive comic that gave a lot of background story info

Ryse looks so sick man i cant wait. Game looks completely beautiful, and a different type of game then we are usually getting. Should be insane, NOV 22nd COME NOW! lol
TechMech2  +   198d ago
As much as I love Xbox one, I just don't see Ryse appealing to me. Maybe I'll like it if I play it, who knows.
d_dogg2007  +   198d ago
This has LAIR written all over it. I expect minimum of 4's and 5's when this thing gets reviewed. You can just tell I've played enough video games in my life to know.
