Ryse: Son of Rome trailers show off environments

The gameplay of Ryse may not have impressed, but boy is it pretty. Crytek's new action game shows off how wonderous CryEngine games will look on next-gen. Three new videos from Microsoft show off the various environments you'll hack, slash, and QTE your way through.

Obviously, being the Son of Rome, you'll see your hometown. However, the game will also take you through the ruins of York and the "haunted swamps," home of the Minotaur King.
