Description

In God of War: Ascension PS3 gamers join Sony's perpetually enraged antihero Kratos on another blood-soaked adventure full of grand vistas, environmental puzzles, brutal hack-and-slash combat, massive enemies, and for the first time in the series, multiplayer action. Set years before the events of the original God of War, but after Ares tricked Kratos into killing his own wife and child, Ascension finds the Ghost of Sparta trapped in a prison for mortals who break oaths with the Gods, fending off insanity and torture at the hands of the hideous, sadistic Furies. Fans of the series know that Kratos isn't one to simply accept his fate, so players guide him as he begins his quest for vengeance and unleashes his rage on hordes of twisted, undead monsters. The Blades of Chaos are once again his primary means of attack, but now Kratos can also steal weapons from some enemies, use a tether attack to swing foes like a giant mace, and use the new Life Cycle mechanic to alter time, solve puzzles, and freeze enemies in the middle of combat. The biggest addition to Ascension is undoubtedly the online multiplayer action, which finds gamers swearing an allegiance to Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, or Ares and building up their character by engaging in 3D combat across a variety of modes. Each God offers a different set of weapons, armor, attacks, and magic, all of which can be upgraded as players accrue experience. Eight-player modes include Capture the Flag and Favor of the Gods (Deathmatch), while four gamers can compete in the Free-for-All mode.
