Ryse: Son of Rome multiplayer DLC and season pass announced

Ryse_LOGOAs a new IP and a launch game for the Xbox One we somehow didn’t expect Ryse: Son of Rome would have enough DLC content to warrant a season pass. Apparently we were misinformed.

Microsoft today announced a Season Pass for Ryse, which will be priced at $19.99 and will include four content packs which include 14 multiplayer maps, an additional mode, a whole other tier of weapons and armor and an exclusive multiplayer sword and shield.

Check out the announcement below.
