Microsoft have went and announced a few different things regarding Ryse: Son of Rome today. First off, the game will be discounted down from it’s original price to 49.99 on the Xbox store. There will be further discounts regarding Ryse: Son of Rome from February 25th to 27th that will be delivered by Xbox Live’s Major Nelson via Twitter.
The next announcement is regarding its next piece of DLC titled: Mars’ Chosen Pack. The DLC consists of two new maps, a new skin, and a brand new mode: Survival.
Some gladiators fight for riches. Others for honor. And then there are those whose only pursuit is a valiant end upon the sands of the arena. In the brand-new Survival mode, such a glorious fate will be within your grasp. There is only one objective in Survival mode: battle alongside a fellow gladiator against endless waves of barbarians as your health gradually drains, leading to your inevitable fall. The only way to regain health and keep death at bay is with quick kills and brutal executions, but the longer you survive, earning more gold and experience with each wave successfully cleared, the faster your health depletes.
The DLC will launch on February 28th for 8.99 or free for season pass holders.
