At least you seemed interested. I have no clue what I just watched. Seems a bit random

Looks like some kinda tag-team battle or something, kinda like tekken tag tournament..

If this is another GOW game then I don't know about you guys but I am sick of GOD OF WAR now. Seriously!? Is Sony trying to pull a Nintendo (Mario etc) or MS (Halo, Forza, Gears)?

Yes, GOD OF WAR 3 was awesome but they should have stopped there and they should give it a good 3-4 years of pure rest and come back with a bang!

EDIT: It looks like a DLC so I guess that's OK. Still, I really want to see Santa Monica and Guerilla come up with some brand new IPs!

@Zee

Exactly, GOW fan here, played 'em all, even played through GOW3 like 5 times, it was that good, but Ascension was just too soon and too similar, so I kind of lost interest in GOW for now... This franchise could use a hiatus and SSM could work on a new IP and it's sequel or 2 new IPs before going back to Kratos.

Call of duty comes out every year.
2 new god of war games came out for ps3. How can u get sick of god of war?

I expect 2 more god of war for ps4.

And expect call of duty every year.
abzdine  +   418d ago
God of War PS4 with Vita remote play. Now make it happen!!
That would kick ass so bad

@bishop-br: i can't really feel the GOW fan talking! Ascension was weak compared to the others, but still a great BTA if we compare it to Dante Inferno or other BTAs in the same category.
The reason why they made it like that is that Rasmussen's team moved to another unnanounced game and another team took over. Now that unnanounced game could definitely be GOW 4 on PS4 for 2014.

I have said it b4, 2014 is the year of the 4:
- PS4
- Uncharted 4
- GOW 4

GOW4 will really be huge on PS4 i have no doubt about that and the ending of GOW3 was kind of a new beginning.

I'd say that this is going to be a PS4 game. I can't wait to see the Santa Monica team turned loose with the power of the PS4 baby!!!

@Zee

Right there with ya man. They're milking GoW like they do with every franchise it seems nowadays. I'm a huge fan of GoW, but come on guys, let's get to making something else for a bit. It's seriously hard to top GoWIII imo, so everything after is going to feel less epic.
strifeblade  +   418d ago
please not another god of war game i have been doing the same combos with the chains for the last 7 games. Please have mercy!
LonDonE  +   418d ago
I LOVED GOD OF WAR 3, and the first 2 games, but ascension just felt like a filler for me, i think it would have been better to wait for god of war 4 on PS4 instead, and i hope finally they can give us a god of war game with all the usual beautiful graphics Santa Monica are known for, but this time with a free fully 3d and player controlled camera, i will admit although i feel Sony Santa Monica are some of the best camera programmers in the business, i still felt disappointed that a PS3 game had a fixed camera,which the player could not really move or change like other action games,yes i know it works well, but fixed camera angles are so PS2 era,and we should have gotten fully controllable camera's.

However since the games frame rate most times ran at a blistering speed while still looking awesome, i forgave it,that and the awesome dynamic camera programming, the swoops, the zooming in, and zooming out way far, made the game awesome.
And then we had the epic battles with the titans, how can you fault that??

One of reasons why i wasn't impressed with ascension was the drop to 30fps,and still no controllable camera, that was a let down,and the drop to 30fps from 45to60fps of the older games was not good, the control's for me instantly felt more sluggish, god of war 4 better be locked at 60fps!!!

I hope for god of war 4 on PS4 they finally give us fully 3d and fully controllable camera,i think i remember reading some where it was the most requested thing, and since Sony Santa Monica create some of the best art i have ever seen, to be able to see the art, and beautiful environments up close, and in full 3d,in all angles will be great, i see no reason why the new god of war in the future should have a fixed camera again, that would be super disappointing! lets hope!!!

Looks like mp addition of some sort. Which is fine, but my mind automatically went to "GoW for PS4"... so it ends up being a letdown.
dcj0524  +   419d ago
I want a god of war on vita. Thats it.
Skips  +   419d ago

Ascension would've actually fit the Vita better imo...

3 main games made for consoles and 3 prequel/spinoffs made for portables.
guitarded77  +   419d ago
@ dcj0524

The HD collection is coming to Vita (it already has remote play with PS3 and Vita), and PS4 will have remote play with Vita for a PS4 installment. I know it's not exactly the same as a new Vita installment, but it's something. I want to see what GoW will be like on PS4 personally.
Mounce  +   419d ago
Is maybe something like.....a God of War + Mortal Kombat game?.... Not like Super Smash or All Stars but Tekken/MK.

Maybe :l
Blaze929  +   418d ago
another one? Really? I don't understand how after Ascension, any true God of War fan would want another...
Majin-vegeta  +   418d ago
Where the f*ck is everyone getting that this is a new GOW game??It's a freaking add on for Ascension.*Facepalm* to all the people who think it's a new GOW game -_-.

God of War series were good games, but it's time for Santa Monica to move on. They should give this series a rest. I would like a new IP from Santa Monica.

GamerGuy153  +   418d ago
To me the video just looked like a tease of concept. Perhaps a coop single player as the two characters on the left worked together to take down the right? Should be interesting.
Sy_Wolf  +   419d ago
As much as I love God of War, which is at a level some have called unhealthy, I'm not sure I want another game any time soon. It's starting to feel kind of stale. Although it could just be that the combat in Ascension made me kind of mad.
king_george  +   419d ago
I gotta agree. I love the series and have played every entry but id rather see god of war go on a break. Then when SM feels truly ready... BAM! God of War 4 on the ps4 baby :)
HeavenlySnipes  +   419d ago
If you opened the link you'd see it was for a Mp extension to GOW Acension
TheFallenAngel  +   419d ago
The combat in ascension was awesome! It was better than any other gow. The story was lackluster in ascension.
PSVita  +   419d ago
What's starting to get stale? There's 3 main games and all are amazing.
Skips  +   419d ago
Agreed, the main series of GOW are one of gaming's most epic masterpieces...

But Ascension should've been made on you IMO. Great game, 8 - 8.5 outta 10 for me...

But I think it would've been better received if it was made specially for you. Like the other two prequel/spin offs made for PSP...

Concertoine  +   418d ago
Yeah, 3 main games but also 3 prequels (the 2 on psp and ascension) and they all play the same.
I mean not exactly the same, playing god of war 1 is different than 3, but compared to the kind of evolution in devil may cry 1-4 where entire systems and new innovations came with each installment (except dmc 5) or even just other action titles like bayonetta the god of war games dont compare as well, and i think its because the gameplay is getting too samey.

thekhurg  +   419d ago
Yes please.
j-blaze  +   419d ago
no thanks
i prefer Sony to spend money on making AAA JRPG or survival horror by a Japanese dev for PS4, instead of wasting money on milking Killzone, GoW and their other overrated exclusives
thekhurg  +   419d ago
No thanks. Kratos is amazing. Let Japanese studios make JRPGs, let Santa Monica studios make what they're good at.
Eyeco  +   418d ago
You know you would have had a very valid and fair point, but the troll in you couldn't resist, I dismissed everything you said at this point.

"... wasting money on milking Killzone, GoW and their other overrated exclusives"

You blatantly tried to push buttons.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   419d ago
this is obviously DLC
Skips  +   419d ago
Not sure why you're getting disagrees... lol Or why I got them.

They linked a vid to Ascension MP gameplay. -__-
hemmo1986  +   419d ago
I think the combat needs an overhaul.

Or maybe introduce a new main character as kratos story is pretty much done and dusted.

overall though I would welcome a new god of war :)
Darrius Cole  +   419d ago
Maybe they could pick up Heavenly Sword. Someone needs should.
Sitdown  +   419d ago
I would love another Heavenly Sword...... but with the main character. :-/
MattyG  +   419d ago
It's just Ascension DLC, nothing to see here, keep moving people.
fenome  +   419d ago
I know right, they really shouldn't be teasing trivial stuff like that when the PS4 is so close to release. I had my hopes up real quick, before I saw what it was...lame..
HammadTheBeast  +   419d ago
Sony Santa Monica has 2 teams. One is obviously working on PS4 games, while this one does GoW and helps Ready at Dawn with Order 1886.
PSVita  +   419d ago
It's not trivial if you have the game.
fenome  +   419d ago
@HammadTheBeast

Good point, wasn't thinking about that. With the next-gen launch so close, teasers just automatically put my mind in that gear..

@PSVita

That's very true, but I do own the game, I bought the collectors edition day one. I was just stating my personal opinion, I'm just not really into the multiplayer aspect of it, that's all. Don't get me wrong, they did a good job, just not my thing.
So personally, for me it is trivial, but I'm not putting it down. I'm glad that people that are enjoying the multiplayer are still getting new content. It's good to see developers stand by their products and their fanbase.

showtimefolks  +   419d ago
i don't think its a new GOW because a big announcement like that will be made at e3,gamescom etc,

mots likely more dlc stuff

i love GOW but i wouldn't mind if the series is put on hold for atleast 2 years before we hear anything about a new game, but here is my thing can we have a GOW without Kratos? or how about rebooting the game in 2015 and letting david jaffe tell a new story with kratos?
chrispseuphoria  +   419d ago

DigitalRaptor  +   419d ago
Yeah that looks like Ascension's design, still.. DLC probably,
4logpc  +   419d ago

Benjammin25  +   419d ago
I'm one of the biggest GOW fans your ever likely to meet. But when and if a new god of war is announced, I would like to see a new protagonist. Maybe a guy living some time in the future who grows angry with Kratos over how he rules Olympus and vows to put an end to him. I don't know. Just something different. As much as I love Krafos, I think he's had his day.

The symbol for Omega or The End. I'd be happy if they only made one more God of War game and brought Kratos's story to an end. It really has been a great series! Probably one of the best!

Just more DLC for Ascension. Nothing to get hyped over.

You people saying "stop making GOW games"...jump off a cliff, already. I can guarantee you right now, if SSS announced GOW4 for PS4...this article would blow up with cheers and applause! People passing out, fainting and starting riots in the streets. LOL. That's the kind of hold Kratos has over people. Get behind it and stop your whining.

People like you, would have us waiting once every console gen for a new GOW game. I dont like people like you.
Len  +   419d ago
Trust me,I wouldn't be cheering for GoW4 now.This series is like R&C,it needs to die for a few years.
Shad0wRunner  +   419d ago
Why?

If SSS can do GOW4 and make it a quality game, on the same level as GOW3 if not better...find a way to continue the story of Kratos somehow or pass the torch to a new God Of War...and it would sell like crack in the hood, then whats the big deal? Why are people like you standing in the way of their cash cow? If they wanna milk it, let em. People will buy it.

I dont see the logic in wanting to wait so long. If you can have pizza every day, instead of just on weekends or special occasions...then by all means, have pizza every day. LOL.

@Len

Well then they need to give us some more platformers/hack&slash!!

We lost Bayonetta to Nintendo and then Kingdoms of Amalur went bankrupt. I bought Kingdoms day one too because I wanted to support the makers, a sequal to that game that wasn't so convoluted with a jump button could've been EPIC. Especially on next-gen consoles!

@Shad0wRunner

I don't wanna slice of the pie, I want the whole damn thing!
And beer, I want that too...

This Article needs a title change.

Atleast add "Ascension" in there, so people don't get the wrong idea.

Anyway, it's [Multiplayer DLC for God of War: ASCENSION], for anyone skimming through.
