Brutal God of War Ascension multiplayer gameplay

God of War Ascension is going to be a fairly exciting addition to the popular Sony franchise, most notably due to the fact that Ascension will add multiplayer to the game for the very first time.

We now have a great gameplay clip to show you, which gives you an idea of how multiplayer will work in Ascension and just like we’ve seen in single player campaigns – multiplayer is still going to be as violent as ever.

The gameplay shown appears to be an online deathmatch mode, with players having the ability to finish off opponents with a close-up brutal execution. The object of the game from what we can see is to rack up as many points as you can. You can do this by obviously killing as many opponents as possible, or by grabbing items from the various chests that are scattered around the map as well.

You can pick up more powerful weapons as power-ups, ones which deal a lot more damage, but only last for a limited time only. One thing that we do like the look of is the various traps you can set for your opponents. By setting traps using R1, you can begin combat with an enemy and then lead them towards the trap as you’re fighting. If they land on the trap they’ll take extra damage, but so will you if you don’t escape quickly enough.

It looks like an interesting addition to God of War, but at the end of the day they had to add multiplayer in sooner or later. Hopefully the game contains a lot more multiplayer modes than the one seen, otherwise it may get a little boring rather quickly. Check out the footage for yourself below and let us know your thoughts on multiplayer for the first time.
