GameSessions, an online digital distribution service, started their GameSessions Giveaways service today and kicked things off with RYSE Son of Rome, the hack n slash visual masterpiece developed by Crytek, available for free as a direct download from their website. The download is a total of 30GB and upon playing for 5 minutes, you can keep the game permanently.
The only caveat is that the game will not be added to your Steam or GOG library but instead will exist separately, although you will have the option to still purchase the a Steam code in game and still keep their progress.
RYSE Son of Rome had a less than favorable release, with not as many copies being sold as Crytek expected. This free giveaway may compel people to try it and perhaps purchase it for their game libraries.
