Ryse: Son of Rome Live Action Series Begins With “The Fall”

on November 6, 2013 1:07 PM

It seems like live action counterparts to video games are becoming popular these days (perhaps after the relative success of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, the Payday web series, and the hype behind the upcoming Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist series). Now a Ryse: Son of Rome series is underway on Machinima, starting with “The Fall.”

Ryse: Son of Rome stars the Roman general Marius Titus, with the The Fall showing off his backstory, and how the tragic death of his family at the hands of barbarians turned him into the badass leader we’ve seen in the game’s trailers. Check out the first episode below, and stay tuned for the next part, “Spirit of Vengeance.”

Ryse: Son of Rome is set to release as a launch day title for the Xbox One on November 22nd, later this month. For more on the game, check out all of our Ryse: Son of Rome news.
