Ryse: Son of Rome videos which were posted yesterday on Gamespot have been released to the masses. You can now watch them here, on the site, below. One details the game’s story, and gives you an idea of what caused Marius Titus to become so stab-happy, while the other tells the tale of Damocles and how he learned that virtue is its own reward for living a happy life and all that nonsense. He apparently didn’t know much regarding the strength of horse hair. Some screenshots are below as well. Ryse is a Microsoft-published Xbox One launch title due in November.
