God of War: Ascension is the first game in the series to feature multiplayer. Players can select from one of four classes, governed by Zeus, Ares, Poseidon and Hades, before being outfitted with powers, weapons and armour related to the God of their choice.
Sony Santa Monica has released another in-depth video covering the second of the four classes - Ares.
Under Ares' guidance you will have the ability to drain power from each blow, making your attacks stronger and use the element of fire to set your enemies ablaze and strengthen their attacks.
Out of all the classes Ares' warriors are offensively the strongest but lack the same capability in defense.
This video also reveals a second map for multiplayer which takes place in Hercules' arena from God of War III, with the Mortal-turned-God making a special appearance.
