E3 2013: Ryse- Son of Rome confirmed as Xbox One launch title

As rumored for some time, it has been confirmed that Ryse has in fact made the jump to the Xbox One and will be one of the marquee launch titles for the system later this year. The game was shown off on stage during Microsoft’s press conference and is playable at the show.

The gameplay demonstration that was shown on stage looked admirably, much like a more realistic version of God of War. There seems to be a heavy emphasis on quicktime events during battle which may turn off a lot of players. Then again, what we saw could have been an early in-game tutorial that shows off how the battle mechanics work; we’ll know more once our staffers get their hands on the title at the show.
