Is that the game play? Hide behind shieldsm appear and throw spear, duck and throw spear. How does the game actually play now, is it a case of pressing block and attack at the right time? Looks nice though. Story, seems like a less compelling Gladiator haha.

This game will be atleast twice as good as any GoW to date.

".. returned from battle to find his family brutally murdered.."

Very original, it is not like we already saw it in God of War, Dante's Inferno, Galadiator(Movie)...

Family brutally murdered. Check. On a journey of blood thirsty revenge. Check. Wow, this game is totally taking chances with its plot. This is as generic as they come and lacking in any imagination whatsoever. Very thankful this junk isn't being ported to the PS4.

This and quantum break are, to me, the most interesting games for the next gen. Not because I´m certain they´ll be good, but because I really have no idea.

So MS fanboys are willing to drop $500+ to play this?  Ryse looks like a pretty bad attempt at copying from the show Spartacus.  It will be selling for $30 bucks two months after it's release.

Wow, this game looks devoid of any personality.

If they made the game like it should be done, for such a game type then Ryse:Son of Rome, will be one  of the greatest ever made. Hope for more news before i buy.

This game does not look like a good game but it's just so pretty, now that watch dogs has been delayed might switch my pre-order to this.

I liked, but i will say i don't, because probably i will not acquire a Xbox One soon. So i'm telling myself that i hated, and trying to find some peace inside of me.

68 AD and crumbling empire? For fucks sake read a history book in 68 AD Rome was still growing and had not even reached it's peak size, not to mention the retarded use of the word crusade to describe the actions of a Roman Legionary some thousand years before  the first crusade. I guess they think the year of the four emperors and the Batavi revolt is enough to call the empire crumbling.

I burst out laughing during the Assassins Creed 4 trailer every time because of dude's retarded ass face when he says "you'd like to know my secrets, would ya?" So lol

Ryse trailer is really weird...

@willsonak Uhh. MS went back on there policies a looonnggg time ago. Like back in June.

You no longer need internet, ever, - after the Day 1 update.
Both X1 and Ps4 have day 1 update making the console useless until it is downloaded.
No Kinect needed anymore, Unplug it and forget about it if you want.
No restrictions on used games anymore.

You are either seriously out of the loop or a troll? No offense intended, just confused.

@electron-1 lol gow u must be smoking to say this looks anything like tha old t crap

@ohjtbehaaave This is just one of many interesting titles on X1. What game are you buying a PS4 for dear Sony Fanboy?

@Krauklis Its a game not a history lesson, developers, directors and creatives of all genres have always rewritten history to better suit the end product, its called artistic license.

@Krauklis When did anybody claim that the game was supposed to be historically accurate? I've not read that anywhere. The Roman Empire happens to be one of my all time favorite subjects throughout history but I'm not ripping into a game solely because of it's irrelevant inaccuracies.

@steelmouth @ohjtbehaaave  If it's selling for $30 in 2 months means it's a total piece of shit is the point.  And do you really need a list of Sony or Nintendo 1st party games that would be a system seller?  Nintendo is easy... Zelda games... Windwaker and the Wii U Zelda.... Mario 3D, Mario Kart, New Super Mario Bros. U and so on.  Sony will have Uncharted 4, MLB: The Show, Infamous, Killzone, eventually a GOW game blah blah blah.  The point is PS4 and Wii U have games people would run out and buy a new system for.  Xbox1 has Ryse and Forza and a bunch of other games not exclusive to the system.  Problem with some of the Xbox1 games... is that they are also coming to 360 and PC.  There's no reason to drop $500+ on a day one Xbox1 if you can play the same game on 360 or PC is the real point here.  Waiting until you see what type of EXCLUSIVE game library Xbox1 is going to have is the smarter move.  Right now it's not appealing enough to take the $500 dive.  $500 bucks to play Peggle?  No thanks.

@themc_7 Killzone, Infamous, The Order, Knack and many more.

Oh and ryse reminds of God Of War... but much worse of course

@themc_7 @ohjtbehaaave   Interesting?   Looks mediocre at best.  Boring actually with no personality.  Not a fanboy of any company and have always been a multi system owner.  Still play my 360.  But going into Next Gen... I would easliy choose what Sony and Nintendo are offering as far as exclusives go if I had to make a choice.   Xbox1 is going to be a total wait and see type system for anyone other than diehard MS fanboys.  Let's see where the 1st party game library goes with Xbox1.

@VanOrdSucks @Krauklis  It is kind of weird that they would set the game in a "Crumbling Empire" during a time period when the Empire was reaching its peak. I mean you have over a thousand years of Roman history to play with here. Other than that the game looks pretty, but it was originally supposed to be a Kinect only game, which screams On rails to me...it only Just a little while ago became Kinect optional, which sounds like Tacked on control scheme. Personally I hope Im wrong, Id love to see more games in this period besides Strategy

@themc_7 @ohjtbehaaave  He knocks games like Zelda and Mario which are pretty much rated the top games of the year whenever they come out... and then tries to praise FPS games which haven' done anything new or different in 10 years.  Talk about bullshit rehashes.  PS- Dead Rising looks awful... and the Wii U is starting to sell now that the GAMES are starting to hit the system genius.  Go play BF and COD with your mutant friends man.  To knock Zelda or Mario games proves you have no clue what good games are.

@ohjtbehaaave ha I wouldn't play the Wii U if you gave it to me for free. Oh joy, another fucking Zelda/Mario game. Come up with something different Nintendo! There's a reason Wii U is not selling. People are sick of Nintendo pumping out games for the same 2 ip's over and over again. X1 has got DeadRising, Titanfall, Forza, Halo, etc. I believe they have just as many exciting exclusives as PS4

@phbz @ohjtbehaaave  There is no real reason to jump in on PS4 or Xbox1 on day one.  Unless you just NEED to play say NBA 2K14, Madden 25, AC:Black Flag or the FPS on the Next Gen consoles. NBA 2K14 did look pretty amazing and on another level compared to the current gen version.. If somebody falls into that category... they are going to get the console they feel has the best exclusive game library coming to it in the future.

@blobby-blobby Killzone was never a fan off, looked amazing better than any other games on consoles when it launched and same again by the looks of it. But it looks like they have made a load of changes, for starters it doesn't look as dark and dull so I will probably look to get it as a launch game and see how it goes. Who keeps kicking Knack aside? It looks great... great little platformer... I remember Kameo for my XBOX I thought that was amazing at the time too.

@themc_7 @bigmogg  

Did you not say Halo which is also a CGI trailer?

Killzone looks hands down better than any X1 exclusive

@bigmogg @themc_7 lol did you really just bring up Knack as pro for buying PS4? So far the order is just  a CG trailer, Infamous 1 & 2 imho weren't that great. Killzone does look good. I'm not really sure how Ryse reminds you of God of War. The QTEs maybe? besides that I don't see any similarities

@thisBlueDude @ohjtbehaaave @themc_7 I don't think the XBOX had more or even better exclusives than the PS, considering the PS3 still has great support and amazing exclusives kicking. Don't remember the last exclusive 360 game I bought now I think, it started off okay but even then the exclusives minus, Forza, Halo and GoW didn't have much else, Fable SHOULD of been one of those top games but it lost hype which is a shame :(

@ohjtbehaaave @themc_7 Thats funny because I'm going Xbone and Wii U for the same reasons its just to me the Xbox exclusives have always been better.

@MXVIII @VanOrdSucks @Krauklis A month or so ago, they showed Major Nelson playing the online version, and combat looked horrible. I hope they get it right.
