Ryse: Son of Rome

Your comments on our articles.

We're gladdened by all the gladiators

The story of Ryse unfolds in battlefields across the Roman empire, but its co-op Gladiator-mode matches are all hosted at home, in Rome's historic Colosseum. Pitting two players against squads of barbarian captives, it's a gory, rust-flecked evolution of Horde mode, with each match's objectives and settings shifting as you play. The latter range from the open arenas Russell Crowe got to bash people in, to far more elaborate scenarios based on real battles, which spring up from the ground like an Assassin's Creed map and display almost as much sense of place.... read more

Maybe it's just me having one of those moments, but this was quite hard to find for some reason.

Anyway sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. Is it only two player co-op though? Thought it would be four player.

@Plamsa

I'm not going to promote the sponsored stuff on the frontpage, because there's already a whacking great module for it, and I'd rather not present it alongside our non-sponsored coverage.

Just spotted the 'Xbox One hub' above the forum button. Went through the Ryse page before.

You, sir, appear to have ad-blocker enabled ;) There's an interactive bar above the frontpage carousel, which has all the sponsored stuff on it.

Good call, you guys have to put up with enough unjustified accusations of being paid for review scores without blurring the line

Nope I can see the ad's clear as day, I just never bothered to click on the leftmost stuff, instead when I used the Ryse and Titanfall links, I was sent to their respective homes on the Xbox site. :oops:

I like how on the Xbox One hub page it still says 'OXM - Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine - Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine' at the top as the tab title ;-)

Overall glad to see you are clear about the sponsored content, as Cunning says we don't want y'all to have to defend your honour.
