Xbox One is not that far away now. And, since it is not that far away, Microsoft needs to drum up a little more interest in the system. What better way than to show off some new footage from the absolutely gorgeous launch title Ryse: Son of Rome? There is no better way.
The trailer starts off with a pre-rendered segment before showing off gameplay in Gladiator Mode. It’s violent, it’s bloody, and it’s beautiful. I noticed some neat new things with the finishers. It appears now that button prompts are gone (which is great) and are replaced with colored outlines. I could be wrong in this assumption, but I’m fairly certain that the colored outlines indicate what button to press. Instead of an obtrusive button prompt on your screen, a slick colorful outline will help keep you immersed. You’ll see in the trailer yellow and blue outlines which seem to indicate Y and X button presses.
Anyway, the game’s looking better now than it did at E3 with more depth than a simple quick time button masher. Take a look for yourself.
