With the last 24-hours until the Xbox One launches now ticking down, Microsoft have begun to get serious with promoting their next generation console ahead of the Playstation 4, set to launch in PAL regions from the 29th November.
One of the more interesting titles in the consoles launch lineup is Ryse: Son of Rome. Publisher Microsoft Studios and developer Crytek have shared the games two minute long launch trailer, highlighting small snippets of gameplay but primarily showcasing the storyline that will unfold as you play it.
Ryse: Son of Rome tells the story of Marius Titus, a young Roman soldier who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits, then travels with the Roman army to Britannia to seek revenge. Quickly rising through the ranks, Marius must become a leader of men and defender of the Empire on his quest to exact vengeance – a destiny he soon discovers can only be fulfilled much closer to home.
