Celebrating the upcoming worldwide launch of Ryse: Son of Rome on Nov. 22, Microsoft Studios and Crytek have put out the game’s official launch trailer, which gives fans a final look at the story and combat awaiting them in the Xbox One-exclusive title.

Powered by Crytek's powerful CryEngine and the XBox One, Ryse: Son of Rome is set to bring the violence, chaos and what-have-you of ancient Rome to life with what the developers call "unprecedented cinematic realism."

Here's what's in store:

Ryse: Son of Rome follows Marius Titus, a fearless Roman soldier tasked with defending Rome from the growing threat of invading barbarian tribes, who he has sworn vengeance against for murdering his family. However, in order to save Rome and achieve his personal retribution, he must confront not only the savage hordes, but also the corruption that has poisoned the empire he has sworn to protect.

In addition to a gripping tale of revenge, Ryse: Son of Rome also features Gladiator mode. Step into the iconic Colosseum of Rome and battle, either solo or alongside a fellow gladiator on Xbox Live, for fame, fortune and the adoration of the crowd. Earn gold to purchase new weapons, armor and in-game items, and forge your legacy in blood and steel upon the sands of the arena.
