Did you enjoy this video?
Hmm, sounds like they are going out of their way to try and sell us the idea of a multi-player mode in GOW: Ascension."
Plot - according to wikipedia -
The story behind God of War: Ascension tells the journey of Kratos’ redemption from his past sins and the rise of his rage to break free from Ares' bond. According to the official God of War: Ascension website, the game is set six months after Kratos murdered his wife and child. Joystiq confirms "players will be introduced to a more human Kratos than ever before" with director Todd Papy stating that the game will be "giving people a look at Kratos' human side so fans can relate to him better and understand some of the stuff he went through when he was younger.Papy also confirmed that Kratos will have the "Blades of Chaos" and that the story takes place after Kratos sold his soul to Ares.
Is this game gonna be a filler or the actual GOW 4, where Kratos is supposed to battle his brother ?
truth to be told: i already like this because i have the 2 of God of Wars in the Playstation 3 version plus God of War III... plus the Orginal Collection for the Playstation 3... you know the Ghost of Sparta and Chains of Olympus... and boy, do i ever play them over and over again..... i just looooooooovvvvvvvvveeeeee them...
GoW multiplayer is great news to me :)
Tha series has always live up to my expectations in my opinion.
2:45 THIS IS SPARTA!
God of war 4 is looking like a fucking beast.
after playing through god of war triology, knowing that acompleshing the impossible is daily routine iwht kratos i belive that this title might change changes things for the series liek goign againg to the sisters of fate and all or something like that
I dunno about you guys, but more God of War is good news to me. Anyone know how to reliably contact David Scott Jaffe? I like Spawn the the comic book character and I want a great Spawn game. The last one I thought was awesome was Spawn the Video Game in Super Nintendo. David Jaffe is the PERFECT man to make an awesome Spawn video game happen. What do you guys think?
fellas its God of War we talking about here. Since WHEN have they ever failed to live up to their expectations? literally the franchise is one of THE best out there.. just cuz they attached multiplayer functions does not mean it is now gone to shit. make sense.
I wish videos like this would tell the truth and not just show all the people who say extremely positive things. It's not gonna be perfect but all you see are people saying how awesome it is. Real gamers want to hear some of the problems too, but then again doesn't make much business/PR sense to show negativity
I sure as hell hope its better than RE:ORC was lol, hahahahaha...
not sure about multiplayer gow!!
Given the eventual arrival of this prequel, I have a question: If Kratos "ascends" and becomes a god in the prequel, (just a guess, given the title) but his main characteristic is the drive to kill all of the gods, does that mean he will commit suicide... in the past? ....making the first god-victim... himself? ... so shouldn't this game be called God of War: The Big Self-Loathing Hypocrite?
One Comment Lag City
God of war is single player leave it alone
SIGH... Not every game needs Multiplayer
Was that Dennis Rodman?!
WTF has he been lately?
people need to stop complaining about multiplayer.....they showed single player and E3 and it looks epic just like the previous GOW games.....multiplayer has been added so that people can experience GOW in a different way and i'm pretty sure lots of viewers have been impressed by multiplayer so far
Can't wait, loved all of God of War titles. Lots of fun. :)
lola suck :D
This is gonna be so epic! I need to get part 3 first though ;x
Awesome will stop me playing my pc
I brought PS3 just for GOW ^^
I will be picking this up no matter what god of war games are always near my number one games out there they never let me down so i keep spending.
why multiplayer? when cod tookoff with multiplayer every game makes one and hope its will be great. its getting tieresome and old! make a great singel player with all the customiseble parts you now put in multiplayer. and make the game longer then 10 hourers and keep it exsiting. thats my opinion at least.
i think both single and multiplayer will be boring
Looks really boring, actually.. No doubt the single player will be great though.
WOW! I am super-amazed by the graphics! Having the huge cyclops rave in the background while 4(?) detailed player-models battle it out around, below and in front of the giant colossus. Truly awesome. Is this God Of War-game; is it only multiplayer?
i feel sorry for that poor cyclops lol
Also This is what PS All Stars should of been like, a FULL on 3D walk around beat-em-up. also like PowerStone back on the DreamCast....more or less all of the character that are in that game come from full 3D worlds, seems stupid to constrict them to a 2d world, a clone of Smash Bros, Sony could have really done better for that game :-(
This does looks good, but im just annoyed that its a prequel, we already have prequels to GoW. If they were going to do a prequel they should of based the game on the Gods Vs Titans ark, decades before kratos was around. Control as Zeus and follow his path to his rage on enslaving the Titans....
just waiting for the tech that overcome all the present technology
after watching the video the multiplayer looks promising.. but then again i don't understand why they have to add multiplayer to every game now-a-days.. i'm not a big fan of multiplayer. it would really suck if they focused more on the multiplayer then the story mode.
WHAT the heck is this about.... you are entile to your opinions and i respect your opinions too but dude you are missing the action....
@wyh7 GoW3. The original plot was much better than Stig Assmuncher's poorly written 'Quest for Pandora's Box 2' plot. Not to mention he promised an epilogue and a deleted titan fight level for DLC and never delivered on either. Plus the weapons were too similar to each other, even the damn cestus had chains. Tying together the Blade of Olympus and the Rage of Sparta was just a horrible use of both. Also the artsy cutscenes just looked terrible and they left out the eldest gorgon sister, Stheno.

@GreySeven It sounds like you either haven't played the other games or paid no attention to the storyline. Kratos never wanted to kill all the gods. He wanted to kill Ares but never tried because he didn't think it was possible until Athena told him about Pandora's Box. After killing Ares, he attempted to kill himself but Athena made him replace Ares as the God of War. Later he was betrayed, stripped of all his godly power and killed by Zeus. He was then resurrected by the Titan Gaia and swore revenge on Zeus. The only reason he killed as many gods as he did is because they stood in his way. To quote him 'If all on Olympus would deny me my vengeance, then all on Olympus will die.' Killing Athena was an accident, he never even tried to kill Aphrodite, he didn't kill Hera until he got sick of her drunken whining and almost everyone else attacked him first. He did hate himself for what he had done but he hated the gods who had wronged him more. After they were dealt with he thought he could finally kill himself and maybe even rest in peace. As far as what happens in this game goes, we'll have to wait and see but the info so far says it's about how he broke his vow to Ares and swore himself to Athena.

@hellrazorangel No, not every game needs Multiplayer. but God of war: Ascension is more then welcome for me. not only did the singleplayer trailer at e3 look downright awesome but in-no-way did it look half-cooked becuase of the multiplayer. i can't wait for fight as a warrior under hades and crush zeus's army that bitch.
@PCXboxSony y? there r lots of other cool games too which r much better than GOW in my opinion
@_Judas_ Yes, the graphics are astounding for multiplayer looks better then gow3 even. yup, and a cap in a match for players gos up to 8 or so they say on the official website. nope. just like the others games its gonna have the complete singleplayer. the multiplayer is just there =)
@ImBack558855 I second this. It bothers me too that every game MUST have a multiplayer. Why? My favourite games certainly aren't MP games, nor is it the MP features of a game,
@marinermick @itchyflop like a da big boss !!
@Klokateer i can understand how u know all of those info from ur avatar
@McGuirex3 Why get part 3? Its the only one I havent played o.o.
@Devils-DIVISION Well I disagree, I am a huge fan of multiplayer, specially ones with coop modes. I LOVE games with horde modes, although I am grieving at the fact the very very few games offer local offline splitscreen coop gaming, or lan gaming. In any case, even though this may not be local splitscreen multiplayer, I wish it has coop horde mode!
@marinermick Repeating the same mindless bullshit 7 times when it makes no sense...I'm guessing you're a Call of Duty fan.
@Klokateer Thanks! Since I've only played parts of the first game, I sort of base the synopsis of the series on the HISHE.com video. http://bcove.me/z2nezf1h
Me too, and I still have to finsh the last half of GoW 2 for that matter as well! Happy gamiing!
