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.
