Microsoft Gifting Some Xbox One Owners a Free Token for Ryse: Son of Rome

xbox one sunset overdrive ryse

Many Xbox One owners have reported that they received a message from Microsoft for their purchase of the Sunset Overdrive bundle and they have received a free token of Ryse: Son of Rome.

The game was a launch title for the Xbox One and is one of the most graphically impressive next-gen games ever.

It’s not clear whether they are gifting it randomly or to people who purchased the Sunset Overdrive bundle but according to the image above it seems like the latter.

Either way, it’s a great thing to do since it’s one of the games that must be played if you own an Xbox One.

Thanks, Reddit, GAF and others.

      One of those things is true but which one lol? Okay I’ll say it. The game isn’t even decent mate. You want a game with a decent story, good cast AND an actual fulfilling and fun to master combat system? Get Knack.

        Bad attempt at comedy.

        At least you tried, but don’t give up your day job.

      Absolutely. Microsoft’s on a roll. They’re completely decimating Sony this fall.

    That’s bs they can give ryse away for free when you buy an Xbox, but give away shity ass games for monthly games with gold. Why do I always feel early adopters get screwed..

      Because they do, ESPECIALLY in the Xbone’s case.

          Not as screwed as by a $500 kinect useless X1. Your inner fanboy just peeked out jackass. And they did screw over the early adopters, suckers!

      Thats cuz you was stupid enough to buy a X1. Why would you buy that sh*t? You like inferiority?

    I wish Sony would do stuff like this but I guess they can’t since they don’t have any money.

      They dont have to, they are selling like hotcakes, unlike the X1 which MS has to dramatically entice to sell. And just becuase MS has money doesnt mean the Xbox division has a endless supply of money.

        Yeah but the parent company keeps feeding the xbox division. The parent company’s actually dragging the playstation division down.
