Since the release of God of War: Ascension last March, we have supported Multiplayer with a vast amount of DLC - from new weapons and maps, to our brutal 1v1 mode, a fan-driven cape contest, new marks, and more. Even the Gods could not have predicted the level of popularity and impassioned connection to our Multiplayer mode driven by the PlayStation Nation.
As of today, we will not be producing any more DLC content (maps, weapons, armors, marks) for God of War: Ascension Multiplayer, as our primary...
At 400 pages, it will redefine what we come to expect from an "art of" book. This is the art book every God of War fan will remember. Click here to buy on Amazon, or learn more at GodOfWar.com.
I sat down with Senior Concept Artist Eric Ryan to discuss his work on one of the Monsters of Ascension, and a bit left on the cutting room floor. All images featured here and hundreds more can be seen in the The Art of God of War: Ascension book.

21w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Designer Quentin Ramsey announced today alongside a video that God of War: Ascension: 1v1 Multiplayer Mode and new PS3 maps are out now.
Below are the details, to quote: Champions! Our latest 1.09 update is available now, including the much anticipated new 1v1 mode - Bout of Honor! You can view the full change list at the official site.
Since the dawn of our multiplayer, warriors have cried out to the Gods asking for @SonySantaMonica to create a mode where Champions can pit their skills against each other without distraction. I am here to tell you, combatants, the time has finally come!
In Bout of Honor, two warriors will put their lives and reputations on the line to win the best of seven rounds in this strictly 1v1 mode. Bout of Honor is a true contest of skill with no chests, fountains, or world weapons to aid you.
This mode also disables relics and allows for a Champion's magic to regenerate over time. Beware, my brothers in arms, magic generates slowly over time so use it sparingly. If you are careless you may end up like the Prophet Castor, with your head underneath another warrior's boot.
