Everything on God of War Ascension's Multiplayer

God of War: Ascension "Evil Ways" Official Multiplayer Trailer



God of Wars multiplayer will be a new kind of experience. You wont play as Kratos, rather your own character which you get to customize. You will get special abilities depending on which god you decide to pledge allegiance to. There are four gods to choose from, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, and Ares. Yes, unfortunately Kratos is not one that you can chose from even though he's the best. Well that's probably why; everyone would choose him.

You can expect a full range of power ups and experience points collecting while you bash away in up to 8-player combat. Keeping with tradition, the combat will be as brutal as ever from what we can see in the trailer. It wont be all about mindless button smashing though. This is multiplayer after all. You will be facing other real players. You will have to strategies and be a team player in team battles. In this mode you not only face an opposing team of 4, you also have to face off other random bad guys coming at you. And that's not even the main objective. You have to take down one giant monster threatening the land. So yeah, it's gonna get hectic.

Of course, there are other player modes, but the game creators are focusing more on the quality rather than the quantity.

Things we know for sure wont be available are the following:
- There will be no playable female characters,
- No local split-screen support,
- And no drop-in/drop-out support
