Take a look at the legend of Damocles, a Roman centurion who was betrayed and murdered at the hands of corrupt Roman generals, and then returns from the underworld to seek vengeance. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Just a little back ground story.

I wonder if this kind of confirms the story isn't totally grounded in reality. Should make for some great looking locales if that's the case.

He is more Halo than Super man. He is part of an army but is just several levels above the average solder. Still human, just has extra abilities.

Okay first they have god powers and say that it's only for the multiplayer but now they have a guy that "returned from the underworld"?

Why not just say it's fantasy an be done with tip-toeing around it? People like fantasy in their games, I know I sure do.

They originally made it seem like it was going to be more realistic, maybe they were hiding this stuff as a surprise?

Interesting! I hope there is some supernatural aspect to the game.

The trailer was beautiful.

Hints of God Of War but seems like an interesting story

You do know the Romans and Greeks were two seperate civilizations... right? And that the story of a man on a path of vengeance involving the gods has been done like.. a couple thousand times before God of War... right?
mhunterjr  +   687d ago
Do you think god of war invented the tragic hero concept? It's pretty much the staple of both Greek and Roman lore..
Irishguy95  +   687d ago
If the only thing you know of is God of war then sure.

God of war is completely unoriginal.

You wanna know why GOW always comes to mind is because they did it the best what Greek Mythology game do you know that was more appealing than the GOW please let me know. Kratos revenge story was awesome

I think there was a tv aired movie that was better than God of War at the time of its release. It was The Odyssey, I don't know if my taste were simple back then or what but when it came out it was completely engrossing, probably the best made for tv movie I ever saw. Had to of been in the 90s so I'm guessing it was this one http://www.imdb.com/title/t...

GOW were fun games and the story is great but everything about that movie defined the word "Epic" at the time of its release/when I saw it. Maybe 1997s "state of the art graphics" blew me away? Maybe it was the sirens that caught my attention, being a horny teen an all.

Or the movie Gladiator.
Xsilver  +   687d ago
Let me predict the Story your character bitches out and Damocles will come after u and the only way to save yourself is to redeem yourself but damocles does seem a little OP so expect to run from like the prince when Dahaka shows up in prince of persia http://static.gamesradar.co... scary guy.

My excitement for Ryse just kicked up a notch!!!

Game doesn't interest me but it would be pretty cool if they added a battle against Spartacus considering how much of a problem he was for the Romans.
Legacy212  +   687d ago
I am spartacus
Regis  +   687d ago
How about this I will play the game and record it for you and then you can watch it when i'm done hows that?
Hazmat13  +   687d ago
they should have shown this at E3. now it sounds interesting.
Zack_attack  +   687d ago
I cant wait to play this. I didn't expect a trailer like this,(art direction and supernatural beings), but I'm still eager as ever!
Soc5  +   687d ago
I'd like an action game made with this art style
urwifeminder  +   687d ago
Will admit I am kind of bummed out about the fantasy thing I wanted straight up historical battles if I see a dragon im done with it lol but will still give it a play when it comes out.
Funantic1  +   687d ago
Ok preorder going in tomorrow.
horndog  +   687d ago
Yup! My level of excitement just went through the roof.
timotim  +   687d ago
What? Who are these people, and why are they adding myths to historical peoples? So many places this story can go in an interesting way, but if all they do is make up characters and add monsters and such they will ruin the whole thing. Yes, necromancy was heavily practiced back then (read the story of King Saul in the Bible), but this seams to have more of a fantasy vibe to it that's throwing me off. Please Crytech, don't feel you have to go GoW just to make the story interesting when theirs already so many interesting events, places, battles, people that actually existed during the times of the Roman Empire!

Anyway, if you haven't checked out the free comics yet, I recommend doing that for more back story.

Full agreement from me I find the whole fantasy genre contrived and unimaginative I guess the witcher does it with different myths but sheesh use magic slay dragon ascend to greatness no thanks. +bubs
