If you missed the live event, don’t worry, we have you covered. PlayStation has revealed the first details and gameplay footage on the brand new PlayStation 3 exclusive, God of War: Ascension including the news that, yes, it will feature online and offline multiplayer.

As we have already discerned, God of War: Ascension is a prequel. The game takes place six months after Kratos has been tricked into killing his wife and child. That said, Kratos has been imprisoned and sentenced to a life of madness with the Furies.

As is the M.O. for the series, larger-than-life cinematic storytelling, visceral battles, and blockbuster moments will all be present, along with various upgrades from the series, including a revamped combat system and a brand new online multiplayer mode.

Yes, players can compete in online or offline multiplayer battles that combine the fierce combat and scale of the franchise with a unique gameplay experience.
