Despite previous gameplay trailers and footage of Ryse: Son of Rome focusing on the brutal combat found within the game, there is a story within the world of Ryse, and a newly released gameplay trailer gives an insight into the storyline of Ryse: Son of Rome.
Although Crytek, the development team behind Ryse: Son of Rome, are best known for their beautiful video games graphics, Ryse manages to capture our imagination through both great visuals and good gameplay, and hopefully a good story too.
Rome: Son of Ryse's story mode would be better described as a cinematic action title- it has cut scenes relating to the story within the game, a fairly easy control system that is easy to get to grips with, and if one wants it, a very minimal user interface on top of it all.
The story focuses around the Roman solider, Marius Titus. After a return back home, he finds his family has been brutally murdered, and then sets off to find the most loyal soldiers to fight with him along his raging path of revenge.
It doesn't sound exactly original, but I have hope that Crytek can do a good enough job with the Ryse: Son of Rome's story mode by using decent voice acting and its beautiful graphics to immerse players into the game.
Ryse: Son of Rome will be an Xbox One launch title game, and it is looking to be among the very best of the current offering available at launch.
