Xbox One Launch Title Ryse Displayed, Killer Instinct Makes a Return


The Roman-themed action game Ryse was shown, which has considerable graphical improvements over most current Xbox 360 games and displays quite a cinematic feel, somewhat similar to Warner Bros.'s 300. The main character is tasked with rallying his troops, attacking the tower and one-on-one combat.

The playing style is heavily "Quick-Time-Event" based, with frequent button presses used for finishing moves, althought the combat itself isn't pre-rendered. The environments are quite detailed, and the game does seem to be running quite smoothly, even with combat sequences and fire effects off in the backgrounds.

The reception was not quite as devastating as it was for Metal Gear Solid 5.

Also announced is the return of Killer Instinct, only on Xbox One.
