For some or other reason, Crytek’s Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome has consistently failed to give me, well, a rise. I played a single player demo at E3, and a multiplayer one at Gamescom, and both times, even though it’s ditched the overreliance on QTE’s, I left feeling little more than ambivalence. That’s not to say that the game doesn’t look nice, or play well – it’s just without any real context, it’s just a dude in shiny armour killing other dudes. This trailer, from a Gamespot feature, changes that.

Check this out.

And man, that looks pretty good, even if it is running at 900p. And according to Microsoft’s Albert Penello, the whole thing was put together using in-game footage.


That’s pretty damned shiny, looks smooth as all heck and quite probably quite fun to play.
