Video: God of War: Ascension: 1v1 Multiplayer Mode, New Maps Out

200°
40w 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.
