Crytek’s Ryse announced, is first-person Kinect sword title

Monday, 6th June 2011 18:27 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Crytek’s announced the title formerly known as Codename Kingdoms, which is now Ryse. It’s a first-person hack-and-slash using Kinect.

The game is entirely gesture-controlled, including kicking and stabbing, as well as shield-blocking.

The trailer showed a dog approaching dead bodies across the streets of Rome, as well as plenty of wreckage across the city. Watch it for yourself below courtesy of GameTrailers.

There was no date at the end.

    Actually I am not that suprissed because they develop Cryengine to be multiplatform and now to make some adventure genre exclusive on xbox just don’t look like smart option.IMO if they leave PC for consoles …. But again this kinect and maybe later would come on PS3 as move title.

    Someone at Crytek decided to rip off Rome (fantastic HBO TV show) in a big way, the water colour style intro is lifted right from the show not to mention the look of the city.

    I suppose they at least had taste in who they were ripping off, dont expect much from a kinect game though.

    That’s very nice indeed. It’s a bit like the gladiator game from that Move sports game.

    After the quite incredible Crysis 2 I’m very much looking forward to seeing more.
