As you may know, upcoming God of War title, Ascension, will feature multiplayer as well as the usual single-player mode. Sony has revealed a brand new multiplayer trailer, new details about the mode and a multiplayer beta for the title.
The game will feature an intense and fresh online four-vs-four competitive mode, combining the visceral combat and brutal finishing kills from the single-player mode. The way multiplayer mode will be a “mystery you’ll discover at launch”, but the developers reveal it involves pledging your allegiance to one of four familiar Gods: Zeus, Hades, Ares and Poseidon.
Each God will offer a unique combat play-style and devastating abilities in battle. You’ll unlock special magic abilities, new and upgraded armors and weapons, mystical relics and other treasures as you earn XP to level up your Warrior. While each will have an incredible array of combat maneuvers, the “attack-style” of the God you align with is critical to your Warriors “path.”
Here’s a brand-new multiplayer trailer to whet your appetite, this is what God of War: Ascension multiplayer is all about:
Sony will be launching a global multiplayer beta in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers, but there will be other ways to get access too. You can look forward to the full game in March 2013.
