God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta To All

While our God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta was originally a PlayStation Plus Exclusive up until now, we have decided to open it to all SCEA PSN users (North & South America) until we shut the Beta down this Monday night at Midnight PST (Pacific Standard Time). (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

So it works for everyone? Lol my friend just gave me that code. I have PS+ so I gave it away on here

Great beta in that it gives you a clear indicator of whether or not you'll enjoy the full game. From what I played of it, the beta will either make you want the game even more or disregard it all together. You'll either love it or hate it.

I think it's more likely the singleplayer demo (which is totally different from the one on the Total Recall disc) that will make or break this game for some.

Any legitimate God of War fan will purchase Ascension no matter what.
Even if the new multiplayer modes don't appeal to them, they will still realize the fact that GOW was built and was immortalized purely on it's epic single-player story campaign and gameplay.

For true GOW enthusiasts, it's a day-one purchase no matter what! And I'm one of them; March 12th is only 52 days away!!!

I think Logic was thinking more in terms of newcomers to the franchise. As was I.
LOGICWINS  +   604d ago
Yeah, I was referring to the newcomers as Gribble said. I'll def buy Ascension when it hits $30 since I'm only interested in the single player portion of the game. The multiplayer didn't click with me. I would have personally preferred if they used those resources to create an even bigger/better single player campaign.

'I would have personally preferred if they used those resources to create an even bigger/better single player campaign.'

I'll get back to you on whether I agree after I've played the game, but I DO have my concerns.
NegativeCreep427  +   604d ago
Alright. To be fair, LOGICWINS...
from what you and everyone else has seen so far of the SP campaign, how would you make it "bigger/better"?

How do you know it isn't as big and as bad as a GOW can be on the Playstation 3? The game isn't even out yet.


You beat me to it!

Because everything can be improved upon. No game is perfect.

Nothing is perfect (unless it's on the not-ps3), right LogicWins?

@ Logic:

My mack-game is pretty much perfect...

GOW3 was pretty big and that was with 35GB of the disc.
Ascension looks like it really amped things up, and I doubt MP is taking much away from the SP
LOGICWINS  +   604d ago
And despite that, GOW 3 had graphical issues. Visuals were uneven throughout the game. During some boss battles the game looked like CGI, yet other times objects in the game(breakable vases, boxes, and indoor environments) were low res.

Any prudent human being who has played through God of War 3 can attest to the fact that the visuals are inconsistent.

Not to mention the narrative was the worst in the franchise.

As I said before, no game is perfect.

From what I've seen of the single player, it looks great. What bothered me was Todd Pappy touting the games 10 hour length, is if that was a GOOD thing. GOW2 took me 16 hours on Titan Mode. I was hoping for Ascension to be at LEAST 15 hours long.

I don't get why people say that they'd take out multiplayer for a better quality singleplayer, but they would never sacrifice a few hours of gameplay for a better quality experience.

gamers should just stop talking arguing about the length of games, quality is way more important, that's what makes you go and play them again.
Riderz1337  +   604d ago
The multi player is just an added bonus. The single player is where it's at. Have you seen the latest 30 second teaser? If that doesn't convince you then I don't know what will.
showtimefolks  +   604d ago

see the latest GOW single player trailer some of the bosses look sick. so when it comes to SP wise i think GOW is a safe bet and we know what to expect.

I haven't not played beta even though i have psn:plus but most people who have played it said they loved it. I will play it soon to make my own choice but even if i don't like MP its a day one for me since i can't wait 3-4 months for it to hit $30

also keep in mind sony exclusives like Nintendo don't get many price drops early on.
LOGICWINS  +   604d ago
Most people that played the beta loved it? How did you come to that conclusion.
showtimefolks  +   604d ago
sorry i should have added most people who i know that played the beta have said nice things about it, now not everyone loved it but out of 12 friends who like GOW 11 said they think MP could have some long legs and be actually fleshed out

now i have not played like i said before. i don't think i care whether its good or not, i want the single player to be epic and from the last single player it looks epic


if you are a GOW fan than you know what you are getting

one question though why is it that every GOW game has had a different game director? what happen to sig i think the guy who directed GOW3? because he is still on the team
FunAndGun  +   604d ago
sounds like you got your head stomped in and split in half during your multiplayer experience.

It seems most people who don't understand the gameplay mechanics or get dominated quickly get turned off very easily.

What was it you didn't like? I mean, if you play multiplayer games and you like GoW, how could you not have fun?
LOGICWINS  +   604d ago
The multiplayer was either too easy or too cumbersome. No in between. At one point I had a four match winning streak, the next I was constantly juggled into oblivion for the next 3 rounds. It reminded me of why hack n slash games will never work online. It's 15% memorizing combos and 85% chaos/luck.

Also the mode where you have to kill that big ass monster didn't make any sense to me.
SilentNegotiator  +   604d ago

Yes, I'm sure those are the impressions you got from watching GOW:A videos on Youtube. Most of us that played it on our existent PS3s, however, seem to have enjoyed it.

FunAndGun  +   604d ago
OK, fair enough. I can see how that would turn people off.

Obviously we all have our experiences and opinions, but I do strongly disagree with your views that hack and slash games do not work online.

If you were not able to understand the Team Favor of the Gods mode, then how much of an overall understanding can you have of the combat and gameplay mechanics at this point?

The combat is much deeper then you have dug, and this game very much depends on skill, tactics, timing, and reflexes. If you go in thinking %85 of the gameplay revolves around luck and chaos, then there is pretty much zero chance of you being successful at having a good time.

I think most of the negative views on the MP boil down to lack of understanding gameplay mechanics, NOT that the game doesn't work well as a MP component. Unless of course someone just don't like MP in general, and thats fine too.

Downloading now. Hope its fun :D Never tried a hack and slash online that works on ps3 yet.
jon1234  +   604d ago
my own personal opinion about this beta... but the multiplayer sucks, its so boring.... i dont see why god of war needed MP
Xklaw  +   604d ago
problably boring 4 u because u get ur ass kicked. It´s a fun and engaging MP, and they really nailed that GOW combat feel for it. The MP made me want this game even more.
jon1234  +   604d ago
Pretty funny...! I was waiting for someone to tell me this... No that is not ... And again which is why I said my own opinion... Sheesh

Is it only for North America?
smashcrashbash  +   604d ago | Well said
I am not sure why once again people are basing the MP on a single level demo.Of course if you play a single level over and over again of course it will eventually get boring but once we get the full game with all four Gods,all the powers and perks, more levels and environmental hazards it will become more exciting.But of course people will ride the 'They should have left out the MP and concentrate on the SP' crap forever as if Sony Santa Monica has ever skimped on the SP or skimped on anything before.

You seem to believe that they are EA or Activision who make short SP which are basically long tutorials for MP. The same $hit people cried about forever with UC2 and the MP turned out to be the best I have ever played. But gamers have such closed minds and are so simple minded.If they didn't do anything new like this and made GOW the same way as before people would gripe about it being the same and why should they pay for this GOW game.You gripe and whine when they give you the same thing and gripe and whine when they try anything else.You don't want anything new but you complain when their isn't anything new. And you wonder why developers eventually say 'Shut the f**k up and just play the game'. And then you want to get angry and outraged.

There are an equal balance between close-minded gamers an open-minded gamers. They are people too m8. Great beta though, very well done.

Cant wait for tlou multiplayer

Thanks for the code, sony
d1v4d  +   604d ago
Just try the beta and see. Many people online are experienced, so give it more than an hour or so. Play it for a while, you'll get used to it. It's deeper than "hack and slash". You'll notice once you get your ass handed to you by a player that recognizes what you're doing. Nontheless, have fun champions!
