New God of War: Ascension Footage Shows Multiplayer Gameplay

The new addition of multiplayer to the God of War franchise has been a controversial one.

New footage from Gamescom shows the multiplayer gameplay in action. As you can see from the footage below, the multiplayer features the same brutal combat we know and love from the God of War series, including gruesome finishers that boast dismemberment and a lot of blood.

The footage also touches on the concept of allegiances, allowing the player to pledge their allegiance to one of the Gods; Zeus, Ares, Poseidon and Hades. This pledge offers players specific powers, armour and weapons exclusive to their chosen God. How do you think it looks?

I think the multiplayer looks promising, although I’m apprehensive as to how God of War’s combat will provide a balanced system.
