God of War Ascensions features some very fun and addictive multiplayer which is as brutally good as the single player. I have made this little guide for multiplayer for reference and I have covered as much as I think I can cover but if you would like to add anything yourself just post away below.

 

First things first, pledging an allegiance:

 

Upon entering the multiplayer mode you will need to pledge an allegiance to one of the mighty Gods of Olympus.

 

Ares:

 


 

Warrior: dominant physical powers

Fire magic: Damage over time and disable enemy defences

Ares Items: Enhance melee combat

 

Hades

 


 

Assassin: Stealth

Should Magic: Drains vitality from opponents

Hades Items: Reduce cool-downs and increase mobility

 

Zeus

 

 

Battle mage: Impressive elemental powers

Electric Magic: Stun opponents and disable enemy magic

Zeus Items: Improve defence and escape

 

Poseidon

 

 

Support: Resilient to damage

Water Magic: Decrease mobility and freeze opponents

Poseidon Items: Increase defence and increase team ability

 

As you can see each God provides different attributes which will affect your warrior combat. If you choose an allegiance here and later on decide you don’t want to have an allegiance with that God you can simply press triangle in the multiplayer menu and pledge another allegiance.

 

After pledging an allegiance you can play a tutorial to learn the combat, there are two tutorials, a basic and an advanced, these tutorials are re-playable and available in the multiplayer menu. 

 

Controls:

 

Learning  the advanced combat techniques really does pay off in this game, as important it is brutally killing the enemy you also need to stay alive and learn how to evade and parry attacks. Below are the controls and some tips.

 

Quick Attack:  

Quick attacks can counter heavy attacks. 

 

Heavy attack: 

Heavy attacks break block and parry

 

 Physical Attack: 

 

Block:  

Block will always stop quick attacks from hitting

 

Parry:  + 

Successfully parrying an opponent will create an opening for a counter attack

 

Evade: 

A warrior can be grappled while evading an attack as long as the “Gold Halo” is over their head

 

Grapple: 

 

Launch enemies: Hold 

 

A warrior can be grappled after being knocked airborne, as long as the “Gold Halo” is over their head

 

Special quick attack: Hold  press 

Special attacks can not be used until the cool-down time has replenished in the top right of the screen.

 

Special Heavy Attack: Hold  press 

 

Use item: 

God items help escape combo attacks and give your warrior a temporary battle advantage, these also have a cool-down period

 

Release magic: 

Blue fountains refill magic

 

Sprint: Click 

 

Sprint Jump: 

 

Pick uo world weapons: 

 

Use world weapon: 

 

Drop world weapon:  + 

 

Warriors flash red when executing an un-blockable attack

 

Warriors flash white when they are invincible to attacks

 

Warriors flash blue when they are recovering from a special attack. This is an opening to attack.

 

Warriors are vunerable to attacks while recovering from a special attack or a parry

 

Basic combo:  ,  , 

 

Weapon  charge: Hold 

 

Hold or fully charge weapon for an aout release. 

 

Launcher grapple combo: Hold  press 

 

Rage mode:

 

Rage mode: Press  + 

 

Rage mode, once active, increases your warrior’s attack power.

 

Rage mode attack:   with rage mode activated

 

Rage mode special attack:  + 

 

Open chests: 

 

White chests give you treasures of the gods, collect these to unlock weapons and armour.

 

Green fountains replenish health:

 


 

Blue fountains replenish magic:

 


 

Becoming a Champion (ranking up):

 

Ranking up in God of War Ascension not only increases your level but it also unlocks new weapons and abilities. Levelling up increase with the more favour (points) you earn. These items can also be ranked up the better you do with them which increases their overall stat. Viewing each item shows a description of what is needed to unlock said item, for example, the Battle Armour of Poseidon requires you to kill 100 opponents to unlock it.

 

Inventory:

 

Each item will affect your overall ability so you must choose wisely when equipping items. Your overall ability is the following:

 

Health

Elemental Power

Elemental Resist

Physical Power

Physical Resist

Cool-down reduction

 

Game modes:

Just wait till you get to the minotaurs. Your circle button will certainly get its fair use then.
