Defend Rome in Ryse’s Launch Trailer

The next-generation may have started last week, but Microsoft’s third video game console is still on the horizon. From the developers of Crysis, Ryse: Son of Rome will be available this Friday for the Xbox One’s launch and puts you in the shoes of Marius Titus, a general within the Roman army.

Face off against barbarians and various opposing forces as they attempt to sack and burn Rome to the ground. With its release so close, Microsoft has published the last promotional trailer for the game in hopes of reminding us just how visually stunning it really is. Now hopefully it’ll be the same in the gameplay department as there’s a lot of potential.
