As many of you know, God of War is introducing mutiplayer in God of War: Ascension. I haven't looked into it at all until now. Basically you create a new warrior. Choose one of 4 gods to align yourself with, and with leveling up you unlock new weapons, armor, magic, items and relics. Their website is pretty vague with details but the beta will start January 8th, 2013 for playstation plus members.
The only game mode revealed so far is "Team favor rush"
Team Favor Rush – an intensive 4v4 team battle requiring the completion of specific objectives, destroying your opponents in brutal fashion, discovering chests, and capturing and holding Altars, all in order to be the first team to earn the Favor of the Gods. The rest of the multiplayer modes lie ahead. Check back frequently for new reveals.
From the looks of the video above, I'm guessing one of the objectives might be killing that chained titan. But it makes me wonder if that means one team will defend the titan or if it will be a team competition to see who can kill it first.
How quickly people die and the re-spawn time will be very interesting to see in the beta. Same with game balancing. Seeing as a 4x4 match is a small amount of players, one new guy could really screw a team when going against 4 people that know what they're doing.
Has anyone pre-ordered this game? Or are you looking forward to the God of War multiplayer?
