Looks like the ongoing rumours of multiplayer in the God of War universe are true as Sony finally unveiled the multiplayer aspect of God of War: Ascension, the prequel to the God of War games, last night.
So far only one gameplay mode has been revealed that has eight players battling it out against each other in two teams of four. After one team has been dominated by the other, the team that controls all points gains access to certain weapons that will help them take down a gigantic AI controlled foe. In this case, it was one unfortunate Cyclops that met his end in a brutal way via some very painful looking finishers.
We’re not too sure how we feel about this, since the God of War series has always been about an epic single player experience, so we really hope Sony don’t compromise on that. Look out for more God of War: Ascension in the coming weeks including footage of the single player campaign.
