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.
