Sony has revealed more details on the fourth and final multiplayer mode for God of War: Ascension.
In addition to a Capture The Flag-style, free-for-all and deathmatch mode, Trial Of Gods will offer a two player co-op experience where players are tasked with facing waves of increasingly challenging hordes of creatures.
On the official blog, Sony has revealed that players will face a wide range of creatures and end with a boss battle.
“Over 15 types of enemies await you, including Satyrs, Cerberuses, Cyclopes, Gorgons, Juggernauts, and more deadly creatures. You will start with a set amount of time on the clock, and win time back with every beast you slay. Decimate a wave and you will be granted a Bonus Time Tiered Award (gold, silver, or bronze) based on how fast you cleared the wave. If you die or run out of time, you’ll have to start over again. If you reach the end of the fifth round, an epic boss awaits,” reads the post.
The mode will be available at launch and will include three maps: Desert of Lost Souls, Forum of Hercules, and Rotunda of Olympus. More arenas will be made available following launch.
Sony says: “With Trial of the Gods, we wanted to help bridge the single player and multiplayer experience, giving players a chance to work on their skill-set and gain valuable experience points with a friend, before jumping into the competitive arena. Playing Trial of the Gods is also a great way to grind some extra experience between competitive games, test newly acquired weapons and abilities, or even try a new allegiance. Any experience gained in Trial of the Gods will go towards upgrading your Champions across the entire multiplayer experience.”
God of War: Ascension launches on March 12, 2013 exclusively on PlayStation 3.

This is great to hear. A co-op mode makes more sense for this type of game than competitive multiplayer. I was on the fence for this game, but this might push me over.

Not a huge fan of competitive multiplayer, but I love co-op so this is exciting.
