God of War: One of the best action game franchises ever gets multiplayer mode

Updated on December 13, 2012
Kratos | Source

Over the years, people have come to know and love this sadistic mortal that stops at nothing to get what he wants: Revenge. Kratos quickly became one of the favorite characters of all time thanks in no small part to his anger management issues. We've seen the way he's killed a good amount of Greek Gods over the years, including the most important ones: Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.

Besides his sadistic ways of ending his enemies lives, this game introduced a real fun combat system. Even with normal enemies, Kratos can perform Fatality-like moves in order to dispatch his opponents with style. He can even use small enemies as shields and bash everyone around him with it. And of course, his always faithful Blades of Chaos, which are his trademark weapons with which you can perform really cool and useful combos. Like the always helpful Square+Square+Triangle which can pretty much stop anything and do a decent amount of damage at the same time.

This franchise has always been a single-player game, but in their latest coming game: Ascension, for the first time we'll have a multiplayer mode. We won't be using Kratos though; we'll get to personalize our heroes (gladiators by the look of them) and even level them up. We will also get unique spells depending on which God (Hades, Poseidon, Zeus or Ares) we choose to sell our souls to.

Story-wise, this game will take place 6 months after Kratos kills his family (by being deceived, but he does) and before he gets away from Ares.

It's said that we will see a more human Kratos than ever before, so maybe this will be the most emotional game of the series, which shouldn't be too hard to accomplish considering how bloody and just blatantly sadistic the other ones are (they're still cool though).

God of War: Ascension will hit stores until March, 2013. So we still have to wait a few months to finally be able to see this new phase of Kratos, and this promising, yet intriguing multiplayer mode.

Which God of War game has been the best in your opinion so far?
