God of War Ascension Multiplayer Guide

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:  squarebutton.png

Quick attacks can counter heavy attacks. 

 

Heavy attack: Trianglebutton.png

Heavy attacks break block and parry

 

 Physical Attack: circle button.png

 

Block:  L1.png

Block will always stop quick attacks from hitting

 

Parry: L1.png + xbutton.png

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

 

Evade: R3.png

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

 

Grapple: R1.png

 

Launch enemies: Hold Trianglebutton.png

 

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

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

 

Special Heavy Attack: Hold L1.png press Trianglebutton.png

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

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.
