God of War: Ascension to Focus on Multiplayer

Posted by at 1:10 pm on May 1, 2012

A truly epic multiplayer game is in the works at the Sony Santa Monica studio.

With God of War: Ascension, no release date yet for the PlayStation 3, the third-person action franchise is expanding into multiplayer gaming. Game director Todd Papy unveiled the new mode last week in Hollywood.

Playable by up to eight players, the game’s multiplayer version lets two teams compete, domination style, against each other, but then must ultimately defeat a large God of War-worthy boss for victory.

In the level shown, a gigantic one-cyclops Polythemus pounded and railed over the multileveled map. The camera zoomed in on individual visceral battles. In one, two warriors who look like cousins of Kratos disembowel an enemy and his innards flow out. Later, one combatant cleaves an opponent in half from head to thorax.
