Crytek has announced a co-operative mode for Ryse: Son of Rome called Gladiator.
Gladiator sees players teaming up in a Coliseum to take on an “ever-changing horde of enemies.” “Ryse offers a large variety of armor, weapons, shields, and consumables to customize your own unique gladiator,” according to Crytek. “These items are earned through gold rewarded from victories in combat and impact your stats by improving your focus, XP, crowd reaction, and health. Consumables are elixirs that have a temporary effect, such as improving health or allowing instant kills.”
Ryse will feature 11 multiplayer maps at launch, and one additional map for players who purchase the Day One Edition of the game.
