One of the few titles that wowed everyone at E3’s Microsoft press briefing this year was Ryse: Son of Rome, which is being developed by Crytek. In the game’s newest behind-the-scenes video, the developers have lifted the veil from one of the Xbox One’s premier titles, detailing some of the unique performance-capture techniques at the disposal of Crytek. The game’s presentation is looking to be very cinematic and could be video game’s version of Gladiator if done right. While many deplored the game’s use of quick-time events, it seems to me that Ryse: Son of Rome will be strong for its overall cinematic presentation.
Ryse: Son of Rome is being developed by Crytek and will be published by Microsoft as a launch title for the Xbox One on an unspecified date later this year.
