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

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.

Video: Killzone Mercenary: New Single-Player & Multiplayer Details

50°
44w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Lead Designer Gareth Hughes posted up a video today that demonstrates the Single-Player and Multiplayer modes in Killzone Mercenary for the PS Vita handheld.

Below are the details, to quote: Single Player: Lightning Strike

Two years after the Helghast attack on Vekta, the ISA are taking the battle to Helghan, their fleet gathering above the capital Pyrrhus.

You are Arran Danner, a mercenary currently under contract to the ISA. Your mission is to infiltrate a battery of Arc cannons and direct their fire away from the ISA fleet, instead targeting the Helghast cruisers overhead and opening a way into the city. This is critical to enabling the invasion of Pyrrhus to begin in earnest.

The covert nature of your mission commences with a wing suit drop into the facility; the only way to avoid detection by Helghast surveillance. Once inside your objective is to locate and hack the systems controlling the Arc cannon battery and unleash its devastating power on the unsuspecting Helghast cruisers above.

This won't be an easy ride, the battery is heavily guarded and the security protocols protecting the control systems will require you to interface directly with them using your VAN-Guard, right under the nose of the garrisoned troops.
