Microsoft will launch the Xbox One on November 22nd, and one of the next-gen game console's biggest launch titles is Ryse: Son of Rome, the third person action game from developer Crytek. Today, Microsoft announced that people who purchase Ryse: Son of Rome will be able to buy a Season Pass for the game, allowing them to access a number of post-release DLC content at a lower price.
The Ryse: Son of Rome Season Pass will allow owners of the game to download four DLC packs in the months ahead for just $19.99, which is a 25 percent discount compared to purchasing each pack after they are released. The four packs will add a total of 14 more multiplayer maps to the game, along with "six player skins, new level events, and access to a new tier of weapons and armor". A new gameplay mode will also be included in one of the packs but details were not revealed.
The Season Pass also offers players instant access to an exclusive in-game sword and shield that will have bonus attributes when used in multiplayer. Ryse: Son of Rome will have 11 multiplayer maps when the game ships, plus an additional map for people who purchase the Day One edition.
