With God of War: Ascension launching worldwide two weeks ago, developers at Sony Santa Monica have been hard at work gathering up feedback.
With the first GoW multiplayer experience finally available in Ascension, the team is taking in feedback from all different types of forums in regards to weapon balance, glitches, bugs, added features and customization. While the main addition to title update 1.03 is single player featured with the balance of the Trial of Archimedes in chapter 28, they managed to sneak in a few good multiplayer tidbits.
Check it out:
Introducing Marks, you now have the ability for your warrior to bare appearances marks to show off allegiance to a specific God or faction. In total, there are six Marks with eight color options, including Blood and Ash. Below is a list of Marks included in this update, with more promised to be included in the future.
- Mark of the Thief, for HADES alliance
- Mark of the Trojan, for ALL alliances
- Mark of the Spartan, for ALL alliances
- Mark of the Legionnaire, for ARES alliance
- Mark of the Mercenary, for ZEUS alliance
- Mark of the Deep, for POSEIDON alliance
Albeit nothing extraordinarily exciting, it gets your hopes up for the fact that Sony Santa Monica is listening and is doing everything to improve the multiplayer, whether that be through small updates like 1.03, or future updates that are still in the pipeline. Ascension’s DLC schedule is soon to be revealed, including an unannounced 4th weapon class.
Stay tuned to our God of War: Ascension multiplayer review being published in the next few days.
