A Closer Look at Combat in Ryse for Xbox One

Ryse for Xbox One

Ryse: Son of Rome seems to be shaping up nicely in time for its launch on November 22. The combat mechanics center around emotion, master, and flow. When I think of flow in fighting mechanics, I’m instantly reminded of how Batman beat the $hit out of goons in the Arkham series. Ryse looks to be doing something similar, but with a sword and shield rather than bat-gadgets. Either way, I’m looking forward to hacking and slashing my way to victory.

Some of those finishers look pretty nasty and unforgiving to say the least. One poor bastard was stabbed in the chest then had his throat slit. That’s just rude, boy I tell you WHUT.
