Forging the Armor and Weapons in Ryse: Son of Rome

By Marc Hollinshead, 3 years ago
Ryse: Son of Rome is one of those games that takes its story and influences from historical fact. Of course, the game itself may not be completely historically accurate, but it wants you to experience what being a Roman soldier felt like in the heart of war. In this particular video, we see the armour of lead protagonist, Marius Titus, being made in the flesh. Master bladesmith, Tony Swatton, creates Marius' shiny armour from scratch, and lets us in on some interesting information on how it represents what a real soldier of Rome would have worn back in the day.

If you still aren't hungry for war yet, then maybe a TV ad will be up your alley. Titled "Path of Vengance", this video takes us through a live action sequence full of fierce battles.

The battle will commence on November 22nd when Ryse: Son of Rome launches.

You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect.
