Microsoft Offering Digital Version of Ryse: Son of Rome for $39.99

Microsoft has decided to respond to the request for the cheaper Xbox One digital game prices with a series of tests, it will start tomorrow with Ryse: Son of Rome.

The game will cost $39.99 from the 18th of February to the 24th. New sale will be coming next week. Microsoft studio manager Mike Ybarra explained on his Twitter.

This is a great deal, instead of buying the used game on the console, you can just buy the digital copy of the game at the same price.

Mike Ybarra also said that he is 99.9% sure that the deal would be making its way to UK as well. The expansion will add a new Survival Mode to the game, plus new maps and a character skin. In Microsoft’s words, it will be “the most ambitious and robust add-on to date”.

Major Nelson of Microsoft hinted at these competitive digital pricing models in January this year. It looks like a pretty good deal for anyone who owns an Xbox One and hasn’t tried out the game yet. So what do you think? Are you going to try this one out?
