Ryse: Son of Rome coming to Xbox One at launch

Remember a couple E3s ago when Microsoft announce Ryse, a Crytek game for the original Kinect? Well, forget that, because now, as rumored, it’s an Xbox One launch game. Running on Crytek’s newest engine. At Microsoft’s E3 press conference today, Crytek unveiled the next-gen version of the game with realistic (and bloody) warfare. The demo had a very Gladiator/300 vibe. We watched them unleash hell with the player controlling a leader of a battalion, blocking arrows with their shields, then slashing the throats of barbarians left and right.

Ryse: Son of Rome will be out launch day for Xbox One. It’s playable at E3, so look forward to our impressions soon.
