Microsoft and Crytek has announced that the new Survivor mode and the much anticipated “Mars’ Chosen Pack” add-on for Ryse: Son of Rome Xbox Game is coming on February 28th. “Mars’ Chosen Pack” will be available for $8.99 through the Xbox Games Store, and as part of the “Ryse: Son of Rome” season pass. It includes new maps, a new character skin and a brand-new cooperative gameplay type called Survival mode.
In Survival mode, there is only one objective: battle alongside a fellow gladiator against endless waves of barbarians as your health gradually drains. The only way to regain health and keep death at bay is with quick kills and brutal executions, but the longer you survive, earning more gold and experience with each wave successfully cleared, the faster your health depletes.
In addition to Survival mode, “Mars’ Chosen” Pack features five maps. Two of the maps – Firestorm and Dockyard – are specifically created for Survival Mode, and the most popular map, Courtyard, has been optimized for Survival Mode. The other two – Pyramid and Obelisk – will transport you to the distant and exotic shores of ancient Egypt in Arena Mode. Lastly, Mars’ Chosen Pack includes a new character skin: the Legionary.
To prepare gladiators for the arena, 10 days of sales on “Ryse: Son of Rome” content will be available in the Xbox Games Store. To kick things off, from Feb. 18 through Feb. 24, the Games on Demand version of “Ryse: Son of Rome” will go on sale for $39.99 USD. Afterwards, more “Ryse: Son of Rome” discounts will be announced each day between Feb. 25 and Feb. 27 via Major Nelson and Xbox Twitter and Facebook.
