Key bugs and combat balancing have also been addressed. You can look over the entire patch notes through the official website.

God of War: Ascension has been updated to version 1.03, with a couple of major changes among the usual fixes. As promised, the difficulty of Chapter 28′s Trial of Archimedes section has been toned down, granting health and magic at the end of each section. More surprising is the addition of more multiplayer customisation options – eight new colours, and six “marks”. According to the PlayStation Blog, reported audio issues have not been corrected, but SCE Santa Monica promises to keep investigating, as well as working on upcoming DLC and a new weapon class.

Pick up God of War: Ascension from a US GameStop outlet before March 24, and you’ll score a pretty sweet bonus – the God of War Saga, bundling all five previous games together. That’s a lot of game for the price of one new release, and pretty handy if you’ve never checked out Kratos’s adventures. The PlayStation 3-exclusive Ascension is a prequel, so you can even play them in order.

Sony plans to tweak the difficulty in God of War: Ascension’s Trial of Archimedes quest. Apparently, the section containing three large waves of enemies with no checkpoints, and very rare health drops is just too damned hard. However, there is light at the end of the Kratos tunnel, as the game’s Todd Papy
took to Twitter to deliver the news of a patch in the works. While there is no ETA, it will be released “soon.” God of War: Ascension released in US Tuesday and hits stores in the UK tomorrow. Thanks,

God of War: Ascension apparently contains a mysterious puzzle. By viewing a painting, players are able to access a hidden code, which differs depending on language selection. The relatively simple code was quickly broken to reveal the words “sun bird bull lion sun”, but how this information is used is still to be determined; it may be some sort of hidden content, a cheat code, or even a brainteaser like that in the Trials games. IGN‘s wiki has all the details so far. God of War: Ascension is out now, exclusively for PlayStation 3.
