Sony has released the first God of War: Ascension details, which focus on the game’s multiplayer aspect.
Developed by Sony Santa Monica and with no confirmed release date, Ascension is the first entry in the series to dabble in multiplayer gaming.
This new online element is playable by up to eight people and sees two teams competing against each other to defeat a large God of War-worthy boss for victory.
Multiplayer kicks off with players creating theirown Spartan warrior, with the choice to worship one of four gods; Zeus, Poseidon, Hades or Aries. Each god grants specific special abilities, weapons and armour, and as you battle you gain experience points to grant more abilities for your warrior.
Each player is equipped with Kratos’ trademark Blades of Chaos, though various different swords, hammers and spears become available through levelling up.
Between five and seven different multiplayer maps will be included in the final game, along with several different modes. See below for a gallery of screenshots from the new multiplayer mode.
Curiously, no single player details have yet been released.
