An all-new multiplayer mode will allow furious Grecian deities to team up for a bout of online monster bashing in 2013's PlayStation 3 game God of War: Ascension.
It's the first time that the series has incorporated a multiplayer mode, and Ascension's take on the standard sees two teams of four face off, vying for the favor of the Gods over a series of stages built for the occasion.
Anti-hero Kratos is kept for the single-player mode; four customizable combatants owe allegances to Ares (God of War), Hades (God of the Underworld), Poseidon (God of the Sea) or Zeus (God of Thunder).
The unusual multiplayer mode mixes the sort of territorial tactics standard in a round of Battlefield 3 with a taste of the now fashionable horde modes, as computer-controlled monsters attack (Gears of War 3 being a prime example), while each team duels for the right to take on the level's signature God of War boss.
