Smartglass challenge editor for Ryse: Son Of Rome quietly smothered in its sleep Roman-style

Interesting Smartglass feature nixxed in favour of improving player experience

If anyone was looking forward to the Smartglass-powered challenge editor for Ryse: Son Of Rome announced at last year's Gamescom they may be in for a disappointment.

The mode was to allow players to quickly build their own map of challenges for Ryse's co-op gladiator mode and upload it for a set period of time using the Smartglass app on their tablet.

This feature has been abandoned by Microsoft and Crytek as confirmed by the Xbox platform-holder to Polygon. Smartglass challenge editor for Ryse: Son Of Rome quietly smothered in its sleep Roman-style

They stated, "After careful consideration, we have decided to cease development on Ryse: Son of Rome's challenge editor and focus on improving and expanding fans' experience with the game through both free content updates and purchased add-on packs. We look forward to sharing more details soon."
