Live-action Ryse commercial tells the story of a man's vengeance

A new live-action TV commercial promotes Crytek's Xbox One launch title, Ryse: Son of Rome by examining its story.

In the commercial, protagonist Marius Titus fights foes from the Colosseum to the barbaric Northern lands, while various characters whisper what they have heard of this man's deeds. Some say he is a spirit of vengeance, they whisper; some warn he has come to slay Rome's treacherous leaders.

Another video below examines the historical accuracy of the game's weapons and armor, and demonstrates how they were forged for use in the commercial.

Ryse: Son of Rome will launch with the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
