Ryse: Son of Rome players is going to be getting a new DLC, “Mars’ Chosen Pack,” on February 28, in keeping with the announcement made in a Microsoft press release. The Mars mentioned in here is most likely the Roman god, going by the game’s ideology. The pack will contain a new, two-player co-op Survival mode, four new maps, one re-worked map and a skin. It’ll be preceded by ten days of sales.
The first sale that runs from Feb 18 to Feb 24 brings the Games on Demand version of Ryse down to $39.99 for North America and £34.99 for Europe. Major Nelson will announce new sales on a daily basis thereafter, up till the DLC’s release date.
Two of the pack’s maps, Firestorm and dockyard have been created specifically for Survival mode, whereas the other two, Pyramid and Obelisk have been made to raise the game’s Arena mode. An already-existing map, Courtyard, has been “optimized” for Survival mode.
