New DLC is coming to Xbox One’s launch title Ryse: Son of Rome, developed by Microsoft Studios and Crytek, in the form of ‘Mar’s Chosen’ DLC Pack. The DLC will add 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.
Xbox Wire has also reported that from February 18th, there will be a ten day sale on Ryse : Son of Rome DLC Content leading up to the release of Mar’s Chosen, including a reduced price for the Games on Demand version of the game on Xbox Store.
