Ryse Son of Rome gets free update

Ryse: Son of Rome has received a free update to Gladiator Mode that now adds two in-game level events.

Two new level events can now happen in-game while you hack away at barbarians. An enemy turret will now appear in some maps, and fire arrows at your character until killed. The second event has Reward Statues of Roman deities popping up from the sands. These can activate a one-time bonus to boost a Gladiator’s Health or focus.

Also released today is the Colosseum Pack. Available as part of the Ryse: Son of Rome Season Pass or on its own, the add-on includes two new arenas: Henge and Ascension. It also comes with two new Gladiator skins: Commodus and Centurion.

The free update can be downloaded when you next boot up the game. The Colosseum Pack can also be purchased for $3.99 or downloaded instantly if you’re a Season Pass holder.
