'Ryse Son Of Rome' Rorituri DLC Released: Here Are the Easter Eggs Found So Far, Hints For The Rest [VIDEOS]
Crytek has released the latest DLC for Xbox one exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome, the Morituri pack. Along with featuring tons of new arenas and new armor, Crytek is using this moment to taunt you for not finding all their Easter eggs yet.
The pack costs $7.99 and will feature three new arenas for Gladiator mode – Beacon, False Gods and Revolution – and two for Survival mode – Sulfur River and The Forbidden Forest.
"Beacon tasks players with infiltrating a barbarian camp, False Gods has gladiators battling in Ancient Egyptian temples, and Revolution is set amid the crumbling ruins of the once majestic Roman Empire. In Sulfur River and The Forbidden Forest, navigate an onslaught of perilous traps as you battle against insurmountable odds until the bitter end."
If you'd rather play by yourself the pack will also include five arenas optimized for Solo Mode- Beacon, Revolution, False Gods, Market and Garden. The DLC will also give you the battle armor of Oswald, King of the Britons.
Crytek is taking this moment to reveal that they stuck nine Easter eggs in Ryse: Son of Rome- six in the campaign, three in Gladiator mode. Only five have been found so far: the Dancing Ladies, the Special Pot, the Streaker, the Sword in the Lake and the Ghost Army.
Crytek wants you to be the first to find the rest. If you do, record it using OneDrive (just say "Xbox, record that" to your Kinect if you were one of those unlucky souls forced into a bundle) and email the clip to Major Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Ryse Easter Eggs" in the subject line. On June 2 he will announce the locations of the four along with the people who found them first. Here are the hints to the easter eggs- good luck!
1. In the campaign level “The Wrath of the Nemesis,” there’s a Scorpio in a tower that can be used to shoot many things. Enemies. Pillars. Statues. Firing a few volleys at them will reacquaint you with a familiar face, but not at all like you’re expecting.
2. Hurling a pilum in the water may seem like a waste of lethal weaponry, but if you happen to do it one time too many underneath a certain bridge in the campaign level “Pax Romana,” you will summon a surprise guest.
3. There’s a courthouse with an open roof in the campaign level “Pax Romana” where your pilum can arrange a shocking introduction. Get reckless with them and see what happens.
4. Good things come to those who wait in the campaign level “The Son of Rome.” Once you reach the courtyard, duck behind a curtain and hang out on the steps on the other side for a bit. Keep your eyes on the nearby balcony. Makes you wonder how they got up there, right?
