Microsoft and Crytek have announced that the Duels of Fate DLC is now available for Ryse: Son of Rome.
The DLC comes featuring two new arena mode round-to-round maps in “Invictus” and “Barbarous”, and a survival map titled “Island.” Players will also be able to access two new gladiator skins for their combatants, both taken from “Ryse: Son of Rome’s” single-player campaign: Glott the barbarian chief, and “Ryse” protagonist Marius Titus. Descriptions for the two maps are as follows:
The Servile Wars, a series of slave uprisings, inspired the creation of the “Invictus” map. “Barbarous” hearkens back to the numerous barbarian invasions that helped spur the fall of the Roman Empire. In these maps, gladiators are tasked with seizing and holding special landmarks such as the God Tree, lighting wicker men on fire, defending Emperor Nero from harm, and avoiding numerous firetraps and arrow jets. New underground areas link certain stages together, with plenty of thematic and environmental diversity within each map.
Gladiators come to the new survival map, “Island,” already bleeding. The challenge here is to fight off an endless series of combatants, pulling off executions to ensure the restoration of their health. The limited combat space and constantly diminishing health creates a sense of urgency, and this tension is heightened further by a barrage of arrows raining down on the battlefield. This map demands that players fight without quarter or pause and is “Ryse: Son of Rome’s” most intense offering to date.
The DLCkk is priced at £4.79 and is also included in the Season Pass. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
