Sony Computer Entertainment and developer Sony Santa Monica has announced a new update for its action title God of War: Ascension.
The 1.09 patch will debut a new one-versus-one mode called Bout of Honor. In this mode, two players fight against one another, best of seven rounds, without any chests, fountains and world weapons for assistance. The mode allows a player's magic to regenerate over time, though relics are disabled. This mode comes with four new maps: the Canyons of Kirra, the Chamber of the Flame, the Landing at Delos, and the Streets of Sparta.
In addition, a new four player map will also be available in the patch, a water-based stage called the Whirlpool of Alecto which features a giant leviathan. The developer has also made balancing tweaks and removed infinite combos.
SCE is asking all fans on PlayStation Network to post their feedback on the game's new multiplayer modes on the this thread from today until July 12. Players who participate will be rewarded with a free digital copy of the game's Mark of the Gods pack.
