In advance of the Xbox One console’s launch on Nov. 22, along with the launch of all those Xbox One launch games like Ryse: Son of Rome, Microsoft has kicked the promotions machine into high gear. Earlier the company released a Dead Rising 3 launch trailer, and now we get a shiny new Ryse Son of Rome video trailer. Although the game’s official launch isn’t for three days, this is the official launch trailer.
This Ryse Son of Rome video delves a bit more into the story and combat awaiting gamers in this Xbox One exclusive. Keep in mind that the game takes place in ancient Rome, so it’s not just gory, but in-your-face graphic at times. In short, it brings the violence and chaos of ancient Rome to modern-day living rooms via the “window” of the Xbox One console.
Ryse: Son of Rome follows Marius Titus, a fearless Roman soldier tasked with defending Rome from the growing threat of invading barbarian tribes, who he has sworn vengeance against for murdering his family. However, in order to save Rome and achieve his personal retribution, he must confront not only the savage hordes, but also the corruption that has poisoned the empire he has sworn to protect.
In addition to a gripping tale of revenge, Ryse Son of Rome also features Gladiator mode. Step into the iconic Colosseum of Rome and battle, either solo or alongside a fellow gladiator on Xbox Live, for fame, fortune and the adoration of the crowd. Earn gold to purchase new weapons, armor and in-game items, and forge your legacy in blood and steel upon the sands of the arena.
