Unveiling a new video, Microsoft and Crytek have announced that a free game update is available for Ryse: Son of Rome is now available adding two new level events. As you slay barbarians in the arena, two new level events will occur randomly across a variety of maps. In the first, a new enemy turret 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 Gladiatorís Health or Focus.
In addition, the first add-on pack for Gladiator Mode, the Colosseum Pack, is available adding two new character skins (Commodus and Centurion) and two new arenas (Henge and Ascension). 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.
