According to an email we received today Oct. 30, 2013 from Microsoft, the Xbox One exclusive launch title "Ryse: Son of Rome" will have a live-action digital series premiering on Machinima this Nov. 5, 2013. There will be four videos in "The Fall," leading up to the "Ryse: Son of Rome" release Nov. 22, 2013 on Xbox One.
Told through the eyes of Marius Titus, a fearless Roman soldier who must avenge the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits, “The Fall” brings the world of "Ryse: Son of Rome" to life with gripping storytelling and visceral action. As Marius pursues his vengeance, he must confront the corruption, turmoil and depravity that marked the final days of Rome, and question whether he’s fighting for the empire’s honor or his own.
"The Fall" is created by twofifteenmccann, and if their previous work with the "Halo" and "Forza" franchises is any indicator, the series will be highly polished and amusing to watch.
"The Fall" is directed by Brian Beletic, and features the British stage actor Martin McCready as Marious Titus. The director of photography Mihai Malaimare Jr. is well known for work on “The Masters” and “Tetro,” and there are several additional Hollywood veterans on the production team.
