The lights are on
God of War: Ascension’s multiplayer mode will receive some changes and fixes courtesy of an upcoming update.
The most significant change in update 1.04 is the allegiance level cap increase from 30 to 40. Allegiances will also receive a new item, two new relics, and an ultimate magic.
A significant bug preventing players from attaining shards used to obtain two weapons, the Spear of Destiny and Barbarian Hammer, will be fixed. Other changes and fixes are more pedestrian: game accomplishments such as kill/death ratio will be accessible from the main menu, audio issues will be fixed, and matchmaking will be quicker.
The developers also said players can expect some “brutal new toys” to smite each other with when they announce their first downloadable content pack – something that should happen soon. You can read about all of the changes from the update over at the PlayStation Blog. Watch the video below to see what God of War's online multiplayer is all about.
What do you think? Are you enjoying Ascension’s multiplayer, or did you skip out on this iteration of the series?
That's good, a few things could use fixing indeed.
I like turtles!
finished the game w/o any patches....now i will wait for a PS4 GoW. what, too early to say that?
Skipped out myself, but good that their addressing bugs nonetheless. A "godly" multi-player had its potential.
Just wondering how they got this very intimate picture of Matt Hegelson?? :-)
They need to fix a lot more things too.....sometimes the multiplayer gets really buggy
I love the multiplayer even though I dont get to play it as often as I'd like. Glad to see that they are working on making it even better.
I dont know if Im the only one who has this problem but on the level where I have to fix a bridge to get to the Oracle the camara angle is horrible. It just stood there facing the bridge and Kratos couldnt move any further. Thats horrible
I would have invested more time in it if there were trophies available for it, you could platinum the whole game in one play through if you did it right
this pleases my lower godd.
Like playing the multiplayer close reaching level 30 :)
I reached rank 30 for Poseidon a few weeks ago and I'm currently rank 23 with Hades. Being able to get shards for the Barbarian Hammer and Spear of Destiny will be nice and I'm looking forward to seeing what the new items, relics, and magic attacks will be.
Personally I'm hoping that the fourth weapon set (which SSM has said will be included in the first major DLC pack) is gauntlets and that at some point in the near future Trial of the Gods gets tweaked to be a little less difficult to beat.
The severe time limit combined with the fact that most monsters take quite a beating before they die means that unless both you and your teammate are at the top of your game, your chances of winning are slim to none with an emphasis on none.
I prefer to play solo. But i am thinking about multiplayer just to try out in-game weapons. Also, does anyone know if we get weapons in multiplayer,then use that weapon in single player?
I play a match every week, sometimes it's just fun plain old fun to experience it. Not only that, but since I got the collectors edition I have a season pass that I'll sure as heck be taking advantage of.
I've been enjoying the multiplayer, it's certainly a change of pace from most other console multiplayer games.
I haven't played it yet despite buying it. Hate it when life gets in the way of games.
