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.
