Two New Ryse: Son of Rome Trailers Released

Crytek and Microsoft served up two fresh Ryse trailers. The clips delve into the game's plot and backstory. Son of Rome will revolve around Marius Titus, a commander bent on revenge after his family is slaughtered by a band of barbarians. He creates an army of his own and heads off to confront the killers and anyone who gets in his way. To exact his form of justice, he uses a dagger given to him by his father. It once belonged to former warrior Damocles, who was abandoned by his generals and left to die. Learn more about the Legend of Damocles in the second trailer.

Sons of Rome is an Xbox One exclusive launch title.
