God of War: Ascension may have cost as much to make as Modern Warfare 2, a modern touchstone of big budget development – or even more.

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.

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.

God of War: Ascension is the first in the series to include multiplayer – a controversial design decision which presented the development team with a number of new challenges.

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?
