Am 28. Februar erscheint mit dem Mars Chosen Pack die zweite Erweiterung für RYSE: SON OF ROME. Im Paket enthalten sind zusätzliche Mehrspielerkarten, ein neues Outfit sowie ein neuer kooperativer Modus namens Survival. Das Mars Chosen Pack wird für 8,99 € im Xbox One Store zur Verfügung stehen.

Damit sich neue Gladiatoren optimal auf die Erweiterung vorbereiten können, wird die Games on Demand Version von RYSE: SON OF ROME vom 18. bis 25. Februar zu einem reduzierten Preis von 49,99 € angeboten. Weitere Preissenkungen zu RYSE: SON OF ROME folgen zwischen 25. und 27. Februar.

Survival-Modus – der Kampf bis zum Schluss

Im brandneuen Spielmodus Survival kämpfen Spieler nicht um Reichtümer oder Ehre, sie kämpfen um das eigene Überleben. Zusammen mit anderen Gladiatoren stellen sich Xbox Fans endlosen Wellen von Barbaren. Je länger sie im verzweifelten Kampf durchhalten, desto wertvoller die Belohnungen.

 

Zusätzlich im Paket enthalten sind fünf neue Karten. Zwei davon – Firestorm und Dockyard – wurden speziell für den Survival-Modus erstellt. Die bei den Spielern derzeit beliebteste Karte Courtyard wurde hingegen extra an den neuen Modus angepasst. Pyramid und Obelisk versetzen die virtuellen Gladiatoren an die exotischen Küsten des antiken Ägyptens, wo sie im Arena-Modus für Ruhm, Ehre und Reichtum einstehen. Passend zu den neuen Kampfplätzen gibt es ein zusätzliches Outfit: den Legionär.

 

RYSE: SON OF ROME – für und mit den Spielern

Seit dem Release von RYSE: SON OF ROME am 22. November letzten Jahres haben Crytek und Microsoft Studios hart daran gearbeitet, den Titel noch mehr auf die Bedürfnisse der Spieler auszurichten. Ein kostenloses Update erweiterte RYSE: SON OF ROME bereits um Mehrspieler-Ranglisten und zwei neue Events im Gladiator-Modus. Auch am Kampfgeschehen in den Arenen haben Crytek und Microsoft Studios nach dem Feedback der Spieler geschraubt. Was sich genau seit dem Launch getan hat, finden alle Interessierten in einem umfangreichen Interview mit dem Senior Producer von RYSE: SON OF ROME, Justin Robey.

Interview:

We sat down with “Ryse: Son of Rome’s” Senior Producer Justin Robey to talk about how the game has evolved since launch, the new Survivor Mode and the upcoming “Mars’ Chosen Pack.”

Xbox Wire:  What new elements have been added to “Ryse: Son of Rome” since launch?

Justin Robey:  A couple months ago, players may have noticed new “level events” showing up in some maps, such as Courtyard. A new enemy turret bombards your Gladiator with deadly arrows until destroyed, while reward statues of Roman deities may emerge from the sands and can be activated as a one-time bonus to boost your Gladiator’s health or Focus.

Xbox Wire: Can you tell us about any new features that may have come on-line?

Justin Robey:
We’ve made some UI and interface additions to allow you to view things such as vistas, scrolls and music tracks, and also check in on your progress as you attempt to collect them all. Coming on-line on Feb. 28, you’ll also be able to view “Chronicles and Ryse” comic book pages.

We also added leaderboards for those of you who think you got the skills to pay the bills.  You only rank if you are in the top 10,000 players, so we made it a little more hardcore than usual. Seeing your name on the leaderboard tells you that you are truly one of the best gladiators in the game right now.

Beyond that we are always looking at customer feedback and doing what we can to make the game better.  We are integrating all the new party work that was made for “Titanfall,” as well as improving the overall experience just getting into a multiplayer game.  We also made tweaks to gameplay balance and amount of gold you earn to make middle levels in the game more rewarding.

Xbox Wire: Tell us about the new Survivor mode. How is it different than Arena Mode and Solo mode?

Justin Robey:
Survivor mode changes the strategy of the arena altogether.  The premise itself is quite simple: you are bleeding out constantly, and the only way to regenerate health is to pull off executions.  Though the premise itself is simple, the strategy to succeed is anything but.  This is all about choosing when to kill barbarians and when to save them for later.  Add to that all of the mayhem we will be throwing at you during your arena experience and it starts to get really tough really fast.

More than anything you will need to work with your partner to survive.  One of you might be having the catapults target you while the other is executing enemies to keep the two of you alive.  Your partner might be taking down a group of archers while you are dropping enemies to an executable state to help carry your health over to the next round.  There are a host of new strategies that are introduced with this new gameplay mode, and more than ever co-op is the key to success.

The best part yet is how we approached building the maps for Survivor mode.  Each map makes it a distinctly different experience.  Firestorm is all about tight corridors and creating choke points to keep you from getting swarmed, while Dockyard has wide open spaces with indestructible catapults raining projectiles down on you.  What is even more exciting are some of the additional Survivor mode maps that will be coming in future add-ons, which take this new gameplay mode even further.

Don’t want to spoil too much, but let’s just say that sometimes where you can move around is very limited. I know, I know, EVIL!

Xbox Wire: What else is coming with “Mars’ Chosen Pack?”

Justin Robey:
On top of Survivor mode we have the new Legionary skin, and we added new themed arena maps.  These two new maps, Obelisk and Pyramid, are some of our coolest maps yet.  Pyramid involves actually defending the building of a pyramid in Egypt while Obelisk is about battling it out in an Egyptian-themed village while protecting a build site.  Pyramid is by far one of my favorites because you actually watch the pyramid get built. It’s a very different environment than what you have seen in “Ryse: Son of Rome.” Pyramid and Obelisk definitely add to the variety we wanted to have in the Gladiator Mode.
