Ryse: Son of Rome is a third-person action-adventure hack and slash video game developed by Crytek Frankfurt and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released on November 22, 2013 as an exclusive launch title for the Xbox One, but was released on October 10, 2014 for Microsoft Windows by Crytek and Deep Silver.
Set in an alternate version of Rome, Ryse follows the life of the Roman centurion Marius Titus as he becomes one of the leaders in the Roman Legion. Gameplay revolves around Marius using his sword to strike enemies and shield to deflect attacks. Execution sequences are also featured in the game, which are quick-time events that serve as an extension to combat. The game's combat emphasizes on "flow", a term referring to a player's ability to move on to fight against another enemy upon defeating an enemy with few limitations in between. The game features a cooperative multiplayer mode, which tasks players to fight against waves of enemies in maps that are changing dynamically.
