Ryse: Son of Rome has a live-action series on Machinima titled “The Fall”. The first episode has just been released. Right from the Microsoft Xbox news site:

Told through the eyes of Marius Titus, a fearless Roman soldier who must avenge the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits, “The Fall” brings the world of “Ryse: Son of Rome” to life with gripping storytelling and visceral action. As Marius pursues his vengeance, he must confront the corruption, turmoil and depravity that marked the decline of Rome, and question whether he’s fighting for the empire’s honor or his own.

No word on the release schedule, but I can tell you that the Halo live-action series Forward Unto Dawn was a fantastic connection between the Spartan Ops, Spartan Assault and the world of Master Chief.

Where Ryse needs some introduction, this may well prove to be the thing to draw gamers in – I just hope they don’t expect to do it five minutes at a time.
