OPM UK says God of War 4 will feature multiplayer

Fresh gossip pertaining to the fourth numbered entry in the God of War franchise has surfaced via the pages of the UK’s Official PlayStation Magazine.

The publication claims that God of War 4 is currently in development and will apparently feature some form of multiplayer component to boot: "Kratos is on his way back, with his next adventure set to feature multiplayer,” the mag writes (via CVG).

The rumors follow hot on the heels of previous God of War 4 murmurs from PSM3, in addition to last week’s rumblings stating that developer SCE Santa Monica Studio is beavering away on two new PlayStation 3-exclusives.

Santa Monica Studios has previously said that although 2010’s God of War 3 pulled the curtains down on a trilogy, the company assured it’s “not the end” for the celebrated actioner.

Stay tuned.
