The Roman Legion rises up as one of the stars from Microsoft’s press conference. The upcoming Ryse: Son of Rome looks to be a remarkably gory – and entertaining – adventure through ancient Rome.
Developed by Crytek, Ryse looks amazing. From dismemberment and phalanx formations, every second of the gameplay demo holds up to the standard that Crytek games are known for.
Combat in Ryse seems to be largely contingent upon quick-time event related inputs. This seems to work well for the game, as using this system, as well as the quasi-time slowdown featured in the demo, will allow for Crytek to put some truly impressive detail into each and every stroke of the sword.
