Ryse: Son of Rome is not a game I have thought about for a long time. It was the first game I played when I got my Xbox One home on launch day. I completed it the same day. Since then, I have popped into it a couple of times to play online with a friend but that’s been about it. The game was included in the Games with Gold program a couple of years ago but as I had already completed it I didn’t bother doing anything other than adding it to game library. Well, if you’re a fan of the game or are still looking to pick it up then you’ll be interested to know that the in-game currency is now available free from the Xbox Store.
The in-game Gold could be used to purchase ‘new executions, skill upgrades, and booster packs’. It was basically a way of adding microtransactions to the game. You can buy the premium currency in different size batches from 1,000 – 25,000. All of these batches are now available for free from the Xbox Store. You can check it out here.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ryse: Son of Rome here’s a trailer for the game along with the official description –
Amidst the chaos of the late Roman Empire, become soldier Marius Titus and embark on a perilous campaign to avenge the death of your family and defend the honor of Rome. In Gladiator Mode, step into the Colosseum and fight for the glory, spectacle, and entertainment of the crowds.
