God of War: Ascension Goes Digital, Multiplayer Plans

We have a very important update to share with you on behalf of our God of War Development Team. Cue bullet points just ahead!

But wait! Let’s start with a gift. If you have yet to experience Composer Tyler Bates (whose credits include 300) official God of War: Ascension soundtrack, enjoy this free track on us:

Since the release of God of War: Ascension last March, we have supported Multiplayer with a vast amount of DLC — from new weapons and maps, to our brutal 1v1 mode, a fan-driven cape contest, new marks, and more. Even the Gods could not have predicted the level of popularity and impassioned connection to our Multiplayer mode driven by the PlayStation Nation.

As of today, we will not be producing any more DLC content (maps, weapons, armors, marks) for God of War: Ascension Multiplayer, as our primary team resources start to transition to other projects here at Sony Santa Monica. However — this is not the end of support for God of War: Ascension Multiplayer. Here’s what’s going down:

  • Upcoming Balance Update – our Designers have plowed through mountains of gameplay feedback and are currently working on balance improvements that will tune-up all the Allegiances. We are aiming for this balance update to release later this month. Rest assured, things like the Ares Olympus Armor -20 (PR) is being heavily diagnosed.
  • Dedicated Online Support – we will be monitoring online 24/7 and any new major balance exploits discovered in the weeks or months ahead, we will assess for fixing.
  • PSN Digital Release in October – This month, we’ll be releasing the digital download version of God of War: Ascension to the masses that have yet to experience the beginning of Kratos’ journey and our Ascension Multiplayer. The digital version will be released on October 15 for North America, with other regions to follow soon after. Make sure to check www.godofwar.com for updates on the digital release in your region.
    • All DLC items will receive special pricing options upon digital version release in their region (NA pricing options released on October 22, 2013).
    • The God of War: Ascension Soundtrack will be made available as a free download for all on PSN for a limited time only.
    • Double XP Weekend returns October 18 to October 21 worldwide.

Once the God of War: Ascension digital download version lands on PlayStation Store, the chain of balance will be pulled and will activate the above supporting points.

On behalf of the entire God of War development team: Thank you, Champions! Keep the Flames of Olympus burning on the Ascension Multiplayer battlefield!

    Yeah, The Ares Allegiance is severely undercut.

    The War Hammer of Olympus for Ares isn’t efficent.
    First of all, the attacks you do with L1+Square doesn’t hit most of the time, the character gets bigger, but the range doesn’t seem to hit. Also, when doing his 2 special moves, he should be unstoppable, that he can’t be knock off and he still continues his attack. Damage would be half, but he’d still get hit.

    Also, Ares Armors of Olympus really needs a make over.

    It should be “at level 3” some of the followings:
    +20% Physical Attack, 15% Physical Defence.
    or one of the following:
    +15% Physical Attack for sure, then add 2 of the following:
    +10% Defence (Physical, or Magical, but not both), +4 or 5 Life OR +7% to 10% Cooldown Reduction
    Any 2 of those would work out fine, just don’t take the minimum twice (Life and CR).

    Ares needs a powerfull weapon like Sword of Zeus.
    He would just put himself on fire and have more powerful Physical Attack and Defence., sword.

  • How about releasing all the old preorder/exclusive stuff for everyone? Like the Leonidas DLC. Also the old Deimos skin for GOW3 please, it’s no longer obtainable :(
