With the release of Ryse: Son of Rome just around the corner (next month, in fact), Microsoft Studios and Crytek have released a pair of trailers for the game.
The first of these trailers outlines the main story behind primary protagonist Marius Titus. A highly-decorated Roman general who returns home to find his family murdered, he naturally decides the best recourse is to assemble a large army to wreak vengeance on those that have wronged him.
Carrying on the vengeance theme, but doing so with a decided supernatural bent, the second trailer deals with the legend of Damocles; the Roman general betrayed by the city that he loved, it charts his ascent from the Underworld to the land of the living as he seeks out those who have wronged him in life.
Heavy stuff eh?
Catch em’ both below:
Published by Microsoft Studios and developed by Crytek, Ryse: Son of Rome will exclusively release for Xbox One as a launch title for the machine this November.
