On Friday, the Mars' Chosen pack (included in the Season Pass) will drop, with new maps, skins, and even a new game mode. Unimaginatively dubbed Survival Mode, this pairs you up with a fellow gladiator against a massive onslaught of barbarians. Your health is constantly decreasing, and can only be regained by slaughtering your foes. As the bloodletting increases, so too does the drain on your own health. Of course you gain more gold and experience the longer you last. Sounds like a pretty cool way to play, but remember, you have to act fast if you want to save on the Season Pass.

The editor was originally planned for SmartGlass and would have allowed you to create unique challenges and post them into your game.  However, there is no longer any plans to bring this add on into the wider Ryse world.  Polygon obtained a quote from Microsoft on the matter:

Survival is classic horde style, pitting you and your co-op partner against endless waves of enemies. Unlike shooters with health packs or constantly regenerating health, the only way to regain your lost blood is by executing quick kills and executions. Rewards grow in size the longer you survive, but so the damage you take also increases, so one must keep balance.

Like the Xbox One's reveal, Ryse: Son of Rome wasn't received in the best of light. Unveiled at E3 earlier this year, the gameplay looked like a series of quicktime events with almost no additional user interaction. Sure it was pretty, but it didn't look particularly fun or engaging. And like the Xbox One, Ryse has had plenty of time to...

Though little of the storyline has been revealed thus far, we do get a slightly better sense of what might occur in the game from this video. Rome, a vast empire that made many enemies, was constantly under attack by united barbarian groups and countries. At one point, the barbarians were seemingly defeated, with their leader’s daughter underneath the sword of one of Rome’s finest warriors. However, because they let her live, she united the barbarians once again and with almost ten times the numbers since last time (a very bad move on Rome’s part, we’re sure). It is now the player’s turn to assume the role of Marius Titus, a general of the Roman army, to lead soldiers and defend the Empire. However, things might not be a cut and dry for his character, as he might have his own agenda for Rome as well. Watch it now and decide for yourself:

Your standard weapons in the game will be your sword and shield, and to spice things up the shield does more than just provide defense. Both weapons have your standard quick and heavy attacks, and of course are best used in combination of one another to take out your foes. The pilum (think: spear) gives you some range on your attacks, and can keep enemies at bay while you deal with other soldiers up close and personal. The goal of combat is to build your combos and deliver legendary executions, as that in turn will unlock the most XP and allow you to unlock additional perks via a talent tree.
