Ryse Rises Again As Xbox One Exclusive, Will Use Controller

Crytek's first-person Roman shield-cracker Ryse debuted at E3 in 2011 as a Kinect game for Xbox 360, then fell off the map. The game has returned, as Crytek has posted an update to their site announcing Ryse as an exclusive for the Xbox One. The update is short on details, but describes the game as having "controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect".

Here's the gameplay demo it showed off at E3 two years ago:

So, you know, not exactly a game that everyone has been falling all over themselves over, but I'm actually glad to hear that it won't be entirely motion-controlled. With an enhanced Kinect camera, this could actually be a pretty cool game for the system. And after last night's short-on-games reveal event, the console sure could use a few more of those.

There's also a countdown going on the site (in Roman numerals, natch), and I'm sure we'll learn more once it reaches zero.

    Pfft, who can't spell Rise properly?

      I'd say the same sort of idiots that can't spell chalupa

      My guess is that because its a Crytek game... FarCry, Crysis, Ryse

      They probably didn't want to call it Cryse :'(

        I feel like you might have missed the joke... :P

          I was assuming it was to do with your name, but when no one else picked it up, I wasnt sure!!

          If it is - nice one! I did get it right away :)

      The same people who can't spell Mist.
      Seriously, when I first saw that image, I thought it was part of the Myst franchise.

    There's a vague possibility that it might work with more accurate motion controls.
    Oh, and a controller.

    Is this really one of the 8/15 new IPs on the Xbox One... ? >_>
