Microsoft Launches Ryse: Son of Rome Theme for Windows 8.1

Yet another free theme launched by Microsoft for Windows users

With the Xbox One launch quickly approaching, Microsoft has decided to release a new Windows 8.1 theme based on a game exclusively aimed at the new console.

Called Ryse: Son of Rome, the new theme packs 16 total desktop wallpapers specifically aimed at Windows users, with support being offered for Windows 7, RT, and 8.1.

“Get this free Windows theme and immerse yourself in the world of Ryse, an Xbox One game that puts you in command of Roman infantry in an alternate world of combat and strategy,” Microsoft said in the official description of the theme.

All desktop backgrounds are included in a single .themepack file that takes care of the installation process and automatically launches the personalization screen to change the desktop wallpaper.

So if you’re a gamer that can’t wait to buy the new Xbox One console, make sure you download the Ryse: Son of Rome theme in case you’ve already made the move to Windows 8.1.
