Throwback Entertainment, the owner of various titles such as Extreme G Racing and Vexx, have announced that they will be re-releasing a game that some will remember from the original Xbox. Initially released by Acclaim Entertainment, Gladiator: Sword of Vengeance will be returning to the Xbox One.

Players will assume the role of Thrax, a deadly gladiator during the times of ancient Rome, learning to wield dangerous weaponry through combo attacks and blunt finishing moves in order to return Rome to its former glory.
