If Ryse's main character, Marius Titus, is on a truth-finding mission, as this live-action trailer for the Xbox One game suggests, then he has a rather confrontational approach to conducting an inquiry.

No, I think this is more a sword-and-sandals tale of vengeance. Come on, once he confronts Nero (or whoever that is at the end) and gets him to admit he ordered the Colosseum Screwjob, is Titus just gonna go "OK, well, thanks for being honest. Now don't you feel bad?"

Ryse: Son of Rome is a launch title for Xbox One; both arrive Nov. 22.
