Ryse: Son of Rome gets a free game update

Ryse: Son of Rome

Ryse: Son of Rome's Gladiator Mode, the cooperative multiplayer experience in which you must rack up kills to keep the audience entertained, receives an update today that includes two new level events which will occur randomly across a variety of maps.

In the first event, a new enemy turret will appear and bombard your Gladiator with deadly arrows until it's destroyed. The second event will see Reward Statues of Roman deities emerge from the sands. These statues can be activated as a one-time bonus to boost your Gladiator's health or focus.

In addition to the free update, Gladiator Mode's Colosseum Pack releases today, adding two new character skins and two new arenas for $3.99 (already included with the Season Pass). Below are the descriptions of the content the Colosseum Pack brings.

  • Two new arenas:  Henge and Ascension
    • Henge tasks Gladiators with seizing an ancient forest shrine from hordes of barbarians and securing it for Rome.
    • In Ascension, combatants must fight their way through the burning embers of Hades' lair up to the lavish surface world.
  • Two new Gladiator skins: Commodus and Centurion. 
    • Don the opulent golden breastplate of Commodus, the twisted son of Emperor Nero, or the battle-tested armor of a Roman Centurion
