During the live streamed interview fan questions were addressed concerning Ascension bringing forth some exciting God of War details about the new over the top campaign as well as the multiplayer. As stated by Todd Pappy himself;
“We wouldn’t do multiplayer in God of War unless we knew we could do it right. That’s why I’m extremely excited to finally be able to talk publicly about it and share all the gory details with you live. I even have some exclusive gameplay footage to share with you, so be sure to tune in to see it all live.”
There was talk about the games improved Titan tech engine, will Kratos be shown without the cursed ash covering his body, will Kratos not be as muscular in Ascension since he has not yet gone through the impossible workout brought about from the first three console titles? Todd answered them all. Todd also addressed the dev teams ambitions for the multiplayer and making it balanced and enjoyable.
