God of War: Ascension’s multiplayer powered by Zeus

Monday, 22nd October 2012 22:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

God of War: Ascension is the first in the franchise to add multiplayer, which is explained away in this trailer by the notion that Zeus, ruler of the pantheon, chooses human champions to battle his enemies. Even though he could presumably smash them himself with the lightning he gave to the mortals. Maybe he has an appointment to keep that day?

You’ll notice there are two trailers down there; the second one is a “making of” affair called Unchained, which tracks two years of development as the Sony Santa Monica team build towards God of War Ascension’s March 2013 release, exclusively for PlayStation 3.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    Can’t wait for this! Love me some ultra violence! :)

    Not sold on multiplayer however…

    Has this got a big single player campaign? The way there advertising it, seems like a multiplayer only download title…

    I get they want to pimp that feature, but has there even been a single player reveal yet?

    Typical shit Sony advertising…

    @ 1, did u pay attention to this at all back around E3? Because that’s where the single player campaign for Ascension was unveiled, and since then, there have been some new snippets on the campaign (though admittedly, not much). I bought the Collectors Edition for God of War III, and for Ascension, I’m doing the same. March 12, 2013, already marked on my calender.

    Missed the amazing live gameplay from E3?

    I am really happy that they are giving ample time between each GOW to refine them, resulting in the best hack n` slash game in the industry.

    @1 Did you also watch the unchained making of video, that describes why they did everything that you just trolled about.

    The only added multiplayer was only added so they can charge people for online passes.

    @9: # 1 said he cannot wait for this game and still you feel like you have to defend sony…i don´t get this anymore.

    i cannot wait for this either. loved every GoW game. i am a bit more hyped about the new DmC game though, since this is the best ” hack´n slash game in the industry” imho ;)

    So just to play devils avocado, if I hadn’t seen the E3 unveil, I’d have not seen anything about the SP in this game so far?

    Which is what MonkeyGourmet said… Well that is kinda bad advertising, which is all Monkey said. Which is typical of Sony… Which is something Dragon246 has said in the past…

    So put your handbags down GoW fans!!

    Is there camera control this time round or is it just yet another re-skin of the PS2 original?

    Apologies. Took the comment in an entirely different light.

    Yep! :)

    I love God of War, played through every game. I even re-bought the 3D PSP versions for PS3 (which i haven’t finished yet).

    Not everyone watches every bit of E3 news, the only bit of info i have seen from this was at Comic Con this year, and that was more about Kratos himself anyway.

    Thats what i meant about advertising. Although, i do expect a big reveal next year to counter Gears of War…

    Way to jump down my throat guys!!! ;)
