[adsense250itp]A live-action Ryse TV series based on the video game was officially announced by Microsoft and Machinima.
The show, titled Ryse: Son of Rome – The Fall, will be a four-part digital series that airs on Machinima. It will debut on Nov. 5.
Ryse: Son of Rome – The Fall will feature Marius Titus, the same lead character that will be featured in the game.
The show was first teased with an ad on Xbox.com but this is the first official announcement of the series. An ESRB rating for Ryse: Son of Rome – The Fall revealed the show will include blood, gore, violence, partial nudity, sexual content and strong language.
Ryse: Son of Rome is set to release alongside the launch of Xbox One on Nov. 22. The title is exclusive to Microsoft’s new console.
A live-action series based on Ryse makes sense given the source material. The setting is perfect while the game already attempts to be a cinematic experience. With Microsoft attempting to make Xbox One the “all-in-one” entertainment console, it would not be a surprise to see more exclusive titles developed into live-action shows. It was already announced that Halo will be getting the live-action treatment.
