Forums - Microsoft Discussion - ‘Ryse: Son of Rome’ developer explains ‘God of War’ differences

P.J. Esteves has made a few interesting comments in regards to his upcoming project, “Ryse: Son of Rome,”being frequently compared to the “God of War” series. The design director at Crytek was asked about his thoughts on the subject matter during a long video interview with Gameswelt on Nov. 8.

P.J. Esteves disclosed that the development team members are fans of “God of War” and used the titles of the series, along with other action-adventure video games, as references when developing for “Ryse: Son of Rome.”

However, he believed that the cameras between the two are “a lot different.” He also thinks that “Ryse: Son of Rome” contains a “more free flowing creative combat system” without any “prescribed combos.” You can check out some screens of the Xbox One exclusive title in the slideshow near the top of this article and his comments from the video interview below:

We loved God of War, obviously. In preparing for this game, we played all the action-adventures: Batman, Assassin’s Creed, God of War. I don’t think it is necessary patterned after any one of those. Our camera is a lot different than God of War’s camera. They are about these kind of big quick time events where you take down these giants titans and stuff like that. We’re not really about that, we’re more about this kind of cinematic, story driven experience with more kind of a free flowing creative combat system. We don’t really prescribed combos or do stuff like that.

Crytek is the studio that is responsible for developing “Ryse: Son of Rome.” The Xbox One exclusive software product was first introduced as a motion-based video game for the Xbox 360. It was shown off at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo as a next-generation launch title.

You can order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Ryse: Son of Rome” and Xbox One. A few Black Friday Countdown deals can also be found in the following link from Amazon.com: Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week.

Microsoft Studios will be releasing “Ryse: Son of Rome” along with the launch of the Xbox One on Nov. 22 in the North American region.

It would be better to compare it to Warriors legends of troy only this looks even worse.

“more free flowing creative combat system”

That means it is a button masher.

Almost every video game is a "Button Masher".  That's the point, you mash the buttons and the game changes based on the order of which you mash them.



EYE see you!!!

Don't take it literally. Button mashing as in there is no thought in the combat.

I know, just giving you a hard time!



EYE see you!!!

Τhose two games are nowhere near similar, at least on what we've seen thus far. The only similarity is perhaps the method and era of fighting. Kill with blades, in a , somehow, ancient background.

I like the era Ryse is referring to, but another GoW is not the game I'd like to play.

This, I stole from grandpa...It's called soap.

No it doesn't. DMC, Ninja gaidena and Bayonetta are also more free flowing than God of war but their not button mashers.
