Over the course of the San Diego Comic Con last week, Microsoft and Crytek shared details on the storyline and characters of Ryse: Son of Rome, namely its protagonist Marius Titus.
Titus is “a young Roman soldier who must avenge the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits. The story of Ryse: Son of Rome will see Titus advance through the ranks of the Roman army and “will take him to the barbarian-infested shores of Britannia, and eventually straight into the heart of Rome.”
An online interactive graphic novel was also announced and is available to view now.
Other characters that were detailed include, Vitallion, “a wise and charismatic general;” Nero, the Emperor of Rome;” and Oswald, “benevolent king of the Britons.” The full list of characters announced so far can be found here.
Ryse: Son of Rome is an upcoming launch title for the Xbox One and is set to be released in November. What do you think of Crytek’s next game? Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to let us know.
