The free game update to Ryse adds two new level events to the Gladiator mode for Ryse and will be available the next time the game is booted up in your Xbox One. The first event features a new enemy turret that will appear and bombard your Gladiator with deadly arrows until destroyed. In the second, Reward Statues of Roman deities will emerge from the sands and can be activated as a one-time bonus to boost your Gladiator’s Health or Focus. These join the other random events that occur in the mode.

Meanwhile, the Colosseum Pack DLC is available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for $3.99, or as part of the Ryse Season Pass. It adds two arenas named Henge and Ascension plus two new Gladiator skins.

Henge tasks Gladiators with seizing an ancient forest shrine from hordes of barbarians and securing it for Rome. In Ascension, combatants must fight their way through the burning embers of Hades' lair up to the lavish surface world.

The two new skins include the opulent golden breatplate of Commodus, the twisted son of Emperor Nero and the battle-tested armor of the Roman Centurion.
