E3 2011: Crytek's 'Ryse' revealed for the Kinect

Crytek has announced it will be stepping into the motion control arena with a new Roman-era fighter for the Kinect, entitled Ryse. Formerly known as Codename Kingdoms, the game was revealed today during Microsoft's E3 press conference, and looks give players the opportunity to duke it out in gladitorial style using a full range of upper and lower body motions.

Microsoft didn't say when Ryse will land for the Kinect, but now that its true name has been revealed, expect Crytek to follow up with more information following E3. In the meantime, have a look at these very first frames the announcement trailer:

    God, that title is so edgy! I must buy this!

    So this was the so called Codename Kingdoms eh? Wow, count me out now. It may look amazing but graphics alone won't save it from horrible gameplay.

    There are a few things I gotta say. 1. It wont look like hat. 2. It is gonna use kinect. 3. It is gonna use kinect. 4. IT IS GONNA USE THE FUGGIN KINECT! Seriously I was looking forward to this 1000% now im at 0. WTF?

    personally i trust Crytek over Lucasarts in game making. Just because they are a similar playstyle doesn't mean they are the same game. Case in point Gears of War = Amazing, Quantum Theory = Terrible but they are both the same playstyle.

    Bahaha, I just saw on the Everything you need to know about Microsoft page that this was in-fact Codename Kingdoms. Aughh Not loving this but it looks a lot better than that Star Wars Kinect game, seriously that demo looked very limited and rigid.

    Don't you just love when developers use Y's instead of I's. Next we're going to get a game that misspells Extreme by just saying XtReME! Or a game that replaces the S for the Z. Such as Free Riderz. The game does look cool, but I feel they could have honestly come up with something a lot more clever. Rise of The Romans could have been a cool title, but I guess people like misspelled titles.

    lol i agree, it was exactly the same as the Star Wars game just with a different skin and a shield!
  • PimplesInYourAsstista - June 6, 2011 6:39 p.m.

    'Hardcore'? This is that Start Wars Kinect game with Romans.
  • Spybreak8 - June 6, 2011 6:36 p.m.

    I was watching this and was like is this what Codename Kindgoms is? Then I saw the title at the end and exhaled lol. It does look fun but yeah on Cryteck's tech, hmm.

    this looked epic :) its good to see some more "hardcore" titles for kinect. It also looks visually gorgeous!!
