Synopsis and Multiplayer Mode

God of War: Ascension is the latest video game installment in the “God of War” series. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Santa Monica Studio and will be published by SCE, the game’s story is set before the events of the original God of War. It was also reported that God of War: Ascension will feature improved combat mechanics and additional multiplayer segments.

The game, which is prequel to the entire God of War series, is loosely based on Greek mythology. Set in Ancient Greece, the player will control the protagonist Kratos, who will attempt to sever ties with the God of War, Ares. He can only do this by defeating the three Furies. God of War: Ascension will focus on vengeance as its central theme.

It will also be the first installment that will offer multiplayer mode for up to eight gamers. They can form either a single team or two teams of four, and then they will try to take control of a map in order to earn rewards from the gods. However, they must first sell their champion’s soul to one of the four deities: Ares, Hades, Zeus, or Poseidon.

God of War: Ascension will be released as a PlayStation 3 exclusive in North America on March 12. Meanwhile, Amazon’s promotional credit can be used for items that are sold and shipped by Amazon.
