Silencing the Barbarians - Ryse: Son of Rome Demo

Waterfalls, next-gen foliage, and killing a bunch of Barbarians were on the cards during this Ryse: Son of Rome stage demo at EB Expo 2013! (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Likes like a freaking movie. Wow!
May be we don't need 1080p.

Looks fantastic. That foliage really looks next gen and the lighting looks great. A little buggy, a little tearing and some pop in but it's nice to see devs going for how the game looks rather than silly spec boasts like '1080p' etc. I would take realism of simply have a greater quantity of pixels any day.

As a PS4 pre-orderer, I am honestly jealous of this and Forza. For the moment, I am still not getting one but if you are buying this system, hope you enjoy it!

900p with good pixel quality and AA looks way better than 1080p with no AA and crappy pixel quality. Ever wondered why 720p movie with high bitrate looks amazing on your full hd tv while 720p game look like crap? Give me realistic lighting, great physics, high poly models, full AA , great upscaler etc etc in even lower res than 900p and I will take it any day over crap looking, stiff 1080p game.

Even if the game will turn out to not be that great when it comes to gameplay, I'm still getting it, just to see what the machine is capable of. It's hands down best looking (graphically!!!) game on next-gen so far. The fact there is no LOD and all characters got same fidelity as main one (check the slides), it makes it look very cinematic!

RPG with this grapihcs would be just amazing!

Looks really good. The frame rate need a little bit more work though.

I know, I know, its on you tube.

The frame rate was fine when I played it earlier today. The only problems I encountered were executions activated by other co op players would sometimes not show onscreen at all, or the guy that's being executed would just stand there then die in the next frame. The only other issue I found was that audio ques sometimes didn't play through and would restart when hitting the attack button (which is often) so it'd sound choppy.

Other than those two gripes, the game looks great and plays great.

Sounds good to me!

I'd really like to see more game play footage...the short demo just isn't enough for me.

BTW, thank you for telling me what its like to play RYSE.

Looks like their filing down some of those rough edges quite nicely. Not getting an XB1 at launch (*might want to wait on the ps4 at this point as well), but I do intend to get one soon enough. Probably around the time when MS activates the console as a dev kit, because that is something I have particular interest in.

*because I'm gonna get a capable PC. It will serve me much better.

Look at the size of that mother f**king screen.
PFFT  +   543d ago
Imagine playing all your games on that screen.

Doesn't even look 900p, looks solid to me, I'll pick this up with my Halo 5 copy next year.

video is borked.

i even get a 404 error when clicking on the link...

Probably found out the video is from the PC version running on i7-4770 and GTX780...whoops! Yank it quick, too late, some MS lapdogs already starting to howl, thinking it came from XBone.

What are you talking about? The video works. It's on the Xbox One. Don't be a douche.

Why did you write that if you don't plan on buying an Xbox one?
_QQ_  +   543d ago
Sorry i doubted you crytek, these consoles are close to pc architecture afterall which you are best at.Visuals are great. but how about the game itself? not your strongest suit crytek but only time will tell.
Skynetone  +   543d ago
the fact they felt the need to add a A prompt to knock a bit of wood out of your way, makes me think there's going to be zero strategy/skill needed for this game

Next-gen. All the way into a boulder.

I'm glad Xbox fanboys have one thing to be real happy about.Even though the masses here N4Xbox are Xbox cheerleaders and are always whining about something.They all seem to gather in Ryse threads to protect what might turn out to be a good game.I mean in the end we are all gamers.And it seems like they really need this.So again lets be happy for them.

Where have you been? This place is a playstation fansite
ShinMaster  +   537d ago
Been here for almost 6 years. I've seen legions of Xbox fanboys here all the time.
More recent events may have quieted them down a bit, but they're still around, waiting.

Today I've seen this and DR3 videos, both look boring to me, not because they are on XBONE (I'll buy both next-gen consoles), but just because gameplay looks clunky, repetitive and with bad animation.
BallsEye  +   542d ago
DR3 repetitive? I was overwhelmed about how many things you could do in dr2 and dr3 is way bigger. You need to play it yourself.
WeAreLegion  +   543d ago
Well, it looks pretty.

Silencing the critics, more like! GOD DAMN!
