Sony has announced that the upcoming title God Of War: Ascension will have a multiplayer beta.
A global multiplayer beta is planned to launch in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers. There will be other ways to enter as well, though it's not clear if the beta will eventually be released for everyone on PSN.
The signature multiplayer mode, Favor of the Gods, tasks the first team to accumulate a target amount of points to claim victory. Points, known as Favor, are earned by kills and other methods. When you’re not in the middle of destroying your enemies, you can also help your team earn points by capturing altars, collecting red orbs from chests, and setting deadly traps for opposing players. Every multiplayer level is also littered with power-ups that will give you a quick edge in battle with special abilities, such as the power of Hermes Boots to boost your speed, and many more.
This next title in the franchise is set to launch in March 2013. For the latest, be sure to read our God Of War: Ascension Preview from E3 2012.
