When God of War: Ascension arrives on the PlayStation 3 next year, it will do so with a new multiplayer mode!
While the publisher has not revealed the extent of the mode yet, they have detailed one game type. The Team Execution mode will feature two groups of four players battling for control of a specific part of the map. In one version of the game, the teams fight to activate a cog chained to a giant imprisoned Cyclops, with the winning team earning the right to kill the helpless monster.
The game's multiplayer mode will feature some persistent features as players develop their Troy or Spartan soldiers over time. Performance on the battlefield can yield blessings from the gods in the form of new perks, weapons, or abilities. There will also be a number of different combat roles for players depending on the god they are. They can be Hades, Poseidon, Zeus, or Ares.
