A gameplay trailer for Ryse: Son of Rome has debuted, giving us a look at some ridiculous third-person action. 

The trailer is full of frenetic gameplay as you storm a beach and help your fellow Roman soldiers take a tower. The scene is very reminiscent of the Normandy scene in 'Saving Private Ryan,' complete with shell-shock moments.

Once you make your way up the beach, the enemies come pouring out. Unfortunately for them, so does their blood, since you make short work of them and slice them up like meat ribbons.

You can form ranks and get a defensive phalanx going in order to block arrows from piercing your frail, human form. Watch the trailer above and let us know if you're excited for this game and its brutal, gladius-fueled action.
