God of War: Ascension will soon be updated to version 1.04, which comes with a fix to audio issues as well as enhancements to multiplayer.
According to post over on the EU and US PS Blogs, the allegiance level cap in the game will go from 30 to 40 and a new item, two new relics, and an ultimate magic will be available for every allegiance. More information on Elite Levels and specifics regarding the new abilities will be revealed as update 1.04 gets closer.
Players will also be able to access accomplishments in battles from the main menu, and prominent bugs and other issues tagged by the community have also been addressed - such as the aforementioned audio issues.
Shard issues, which have resulted in folks being unable to attain the Spear of Destiny and Barbarian Hammer, are also being addressed along with weapon shard drops in general. This includes the unlock requirements for "certain armor pieces, weapon stats, and magics."
More improvements to matchmaking are also in the works, and a full change-list will be released closer to the update's release later this month.
Sony is also readying itself for the first of its DLC pack announcements, so stay tuned.
