Crytek's Ryse confirmed for Xbox One

Kinect-enhanced brawler to launch exclusively on Microsoft's next-generation platform.


Crytek's Kinect-enhanced brawler Ryse will launch exclusively on Xbox One, the developer has confirmed. The information was revealed via an updated website for the game, with a countdown clock ticking to June 10, the same day Microsoft will hold its 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing.

The description for Ryse says gamers will "Fight as a soldier. Lead as a general. Rise as a legend." Once a Kinect-exclusive, it now appears Ryse's motion-control features are only complementary to traditional controller-oriented gameplay.

"Controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect," reads the game's description.

Microsoft announced yesterday that it will release 15 exclusive titles for the Xbox One during the platform's first year. Eight of these titles will be all-new franchises.

According to a past report, Ryse will be a launch title for the Xbox One. The Roman-themed action game was announced in 2010 for Xbox 360 as "Codename Kingdoms."
