114w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has revealed a fresh video of God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta at Gamescom 2012 today!

To quote: God of War fans, it's Game Director Todd Papy again with the latest and greatest on God of War: Ascension.

If you saw the on-stage [Register or Login to view links] of our new epic single-player journey at E3, then you're well aware Kratos will be as bad-ass as ever when Ascension hits stores on March 12, 2013.

However, today I'm here to talk more about our ambitious multiplayer mode, a multiplayer experience we are confident will be worthy of the title, God of War.

Back on April 30th, I gave you an in-depth look at how our new multiplayer-mode works, combining the visceral combat and brutal finishing kills from single-player with an intense and fresh online 4v4 competitive mode.

I'm excited to announce today that we will be launching a global multiplayer beta in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers (there may a few other secret inroads).

It's critical to our team that we receive as much community feedback to tune and prime our multiplayer mode for one of the best experiences possible, come launch this March.

Here's a brand-new multiplayer trailer...

To quote: God of War: Ascension's Elephantaur is a Minotaur hybrid unlike any ferocious enemy you've seen yet in the God of War universe.

Now that you've given us a glimpse into the creative process that spawned the monstrous Polyphemus, let's plunge our blades into God of War's newest baddie: The Elephantaur!

Tell us a bit about its history and how you managed to turn one of nature's most noble creatures into such a hulking juggernaut.

Izzy: For God of War III I had worked on the Berserker class Argus monster that was later cut. When I originally started doing sketches for that guy, I had done a painting of a pale elephant coated in blood like a gladiator. That image got scrapped, but ever since, I've wanted to do another scary elephant monster.

When the Elephantaur came up, it was originally an assignment to reskin the Minotaur from God of War III for God of War: Ascension. We had planned to do a different...

The Titan cyclops Polyphemus - the gargantuan one-eyed son of Poseidon - is a brutal boss on our desert multiplayer map. He will literally crush you and your foes (repeatedly) until you earn enough favor from the Gods to be granted the Spear of Olympus - the only known weapon that can destroy Polyphemus.





I sat down with Izzy Medrano, Lead Concept Artist for God of War: Ascension, to discuss his contributions to the...
