Ryse: Son of Rome live-action web series teased by Microsoft - report

Ryse: Son of Rome could be getting the live-action web series treatment courtesy of Crytek and Microsoft. The show was reportedly teased over on the game's homepage on Xbox.com, but the image seems to have been pulled. See it here.

The image originated here, and a scan of the site shows that it's nowhere to be seen. The above grab was taken by Polygon earlier today.

As you can see, it's rated mature for gore, nudity and violence, which certainly sounds in tune with the game's gladiatorial-slash-militaristic hue.

We've dropped Microsoft a line to see if we can get more details Stay tuned.

Would you like to see this happen?

Ryse: Son of Rome launches on Xbox One November 22.
