on September 3, 2013 1:31 PM

The upcoming Xbox One exclusive by Crytek Ryse: Son of Rome is of course heavily based on melee combat, and Microsoft released a new developer diary video giving us a glimpse on battle gameplay and on the work that went on behind the scenes to create it.

We can listen to the the good folks of the Crytek development team explain the flow of combat, how AI enemies will react to our attacks, and the executions that are one of the main selling points of the game.

You can enjoy the video below while, if I can be excused, I have anotherĀ RomeĀ based game to go play during the wait for this one.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
