Xbox Live Gold subscribers looking to partake in some swords-and-sandals hack-and-slash can pick up Crytek‘s underrated Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome and it’s season pass at a decent discount.

Ryse: Son of Rome is currently $10 off at $49.99, but you can pick up the season pass for $9.99, which is 50% off the regular price. Season pass holders have access to all four post-launch add-on packs: Colosseum Pack, Mars’ Chosen, Duel of Fates and Morituri, totaling 14 new Gladiator arenas, 6 new costumes, and an exclusive sword and shield set.

If you’re new to the Xbox One, Ryse: Son of Rome offers a solid campaign and a fairly well done combat system, but its meat lies in its co-op Colosseum. If you plan on picking it up, we highly recommend the season pass, as this is where you’ll be spending a majority of your time.

  1. I should be ashamed of my horrible Crytek not working on Ryse anymore pun, but I’m not. Also, genuinely horrible developer having nothing to do with the games.

    1. Aside from the original Crysis, Ryse was the only other Crytek game I seemed to enjoyed. Mostly because there wasn’t much else available at the Xbox One’s launch, but even still today the co-op mode is really good and has a pretty huge following.

  2. I love the game, I felt it was way too short, though. I’ve never been a fan of multiplayer, the only mp game that I play is Titanfall now. I thought the graphics were awesome, but the playability left issues for me.

    1. Definitely beautiful graphically, and the combat was more in-depth than I anticipated. I liked mixing up the execution perks and how good you had to be at them to even survive on higher difficulties.
