Crytek has announced the Mars’ Chosen Pack DLC for Ryse: Son of Rome.
Part of the Xbox One launch title’s season pass, the Mars’ Chosen Pack contains a new co-op survival game mode, along with five maps and a character skin.
“In Survival mode, there is only one objective: battle alongside a fellow gladiator against endless waves of barbarians as your health gradually drains,” says a post on Xbox Wire. “The only way to regain health and keep death at bay is with quick kills and brutal executions, but the longer you survive, earning more gold and experience with each wave successfully cleared, the faster your health depletes. “
Of the new maps, Firestorm and Dockyard have been created specifically for Survival, while Courtyard has been “optimized" for the mode. Pyramid and Obelisk, meanwhile, “transport you to the distant and exotic shores of ancient Egypt in Arena Mode.” The character skin is a Legionary.
Ryse: Son of Rome - Mars’ Chosen Pack will cost $8.99 and is out on February 28th.
To coincide with all this, Microsoft is holding 10 days of sales on Ryse content. Starting on February 18th and running until February 24th, the game will be reduced to $39.99/£34.99. Further Ryse content discounts will be announced each day between Feb 25th and Feb 27th.
