Teased as Project Kingdom at E3 2010, Crytek’s new project developed exclusively for Xbox 360 received a proper reveal at Microsoft’s E3 press conference tonight as Ryse. A historical epic set in Roman times, Ryse is quite an about turn for Crytek, who are best known for their futuristic shooter franchise Crysis.
The game will use Kinect’s full body capturing technology for its first-person hack-n-slash combat, which is designed to bring the “gritty experience of ancient Rome to life”. Ryse was one of the many promised Kinect announcements targeted at hardcore gamers. Few details were released about the game, so all we have to go by is the below debut trailer.
