It has been over two years since God of War III wowed us at EuroGamer 2009, now we are finally beginning to hear details and rumors regarding the next game in the franchise – God of War IV. Today we will take a look at a recent article over at SilleGamer.com which suggests that the game may feature an online multiplayer co-op mode.
Apparently lots of reliable sources are suggesting that God of War IV could in fact arrive this year, when it does arrive it seems certain that there will be an online multiplayer co-op campaign where Kratos and his brother Deimos have to escape from the afterlife. We are told that lots of God of War IV details will be published in the January issue of the PlayStation 3 magazine, so hopefully this will allow us to confirm all the rumors which are floating around – when we hear more we will be sure to keep you posted.
Previously the guys behind God of War have suggested that multiplayer won’t work in God of War, however these days it is very rare for any game to arrive without an online element, personally we love the sound of co-op multiplayer over the PlayStation Network – how about you?
If you take a look at other hack and slash games you will see that there aren’t many which boast multiplayer elements, however Visceral Games added downloadable-content to Dante’s Inferno to bring co-op to the game, this was very popular with PS3 / Xbox 360 gamers, therefore we believe co-op for God of War IV will be a success – but what other multiplayer elements would you like to see?
Lately we have seen lots of games boast horde modes where each wave of enemies is more difficult to defeat than the last, we really think that mutliplayer horde mode would be great fun, this would undoubtedly improve the game’s longevity and also give the game more means of income via in-game purchases such as maps, weapons and more….
Do you think that the next God of War game needs multiplayer game modes? If so, what game modes would you like to see? In our opinion the game will sell well no-matter what, but co-op and a horde mode would be great.
