God of War: Ascension is to be officially unveiled with the first gameplay footage later today, with Game Director, Todd Papy to host a live announcement event at 8AM PDT (11AM EDT or 4PM GMT).

Come back here in a while, and (hopefully) you'll be able to watch the live stream as it happens. Will Kratos be back with a vengeance? Of course he will. There'll no doubt be more on the game's multiplayer too, which you can read about here.

I have no other choices to get this game, even if it sucks, I need it in my collection. To be honnest it looks good enough, hope they don't only turn the whole game as a multiplayer project and keep a single player part, otherwise it would be a 70 bucks in the garbage once again..

@3 : What the hell are you talking about ? Just wait and try the game, before talking nonsense. I bet you'll change your mind once you get your hands on the game.

As for me, I'm very excited. This looks like the Ninja Gaiden series multiplayer, very interesting.

@4 & 5
Um.. Assassins Creed is the PERFECT way to express failure to a great game.
And that why they are leaving it out on AC:3 . The story here on GOW:A COULD POSSIBLY MEAN ITS ONLY ABOUT 4-6 HRS LONG . the mutliplayer ALWAYS takes the most memory out of the blueray disc. I loved the GOW franchise but this was reveiled during the Tester show on PS network by a leak from one of the players on twitter ( not naming any names ). Uncharted has a decent multiplayer cause of its design. This i see is a steal and copy and paste from other games. I see uncharted ,Soul Caliber, and yes a lil of the Ninja Gaiden crap as well.

As for the game ( STORY ) will be the ONLY reason i RENT / BORROW this.
As im sure 20% of the full game will be cut out and put as DLC , OH AND LETS NOT forget about an online pass.
Sony Santa Monica.......Congrads for killing off a beloved series with the crap that is called multiplayer

@7 MP will be in AC3. And your single opinion on a game series doesn't define the game, just so you know.

At least it's not a story-based multiplayer like Resident Evil 5 or Hunted: The Demon's Forge for example (2 games that I love). Through the images and information provided, the multiplayer mode seems to be quite appealing. However I'm waiting for good news about the story mode.

ust saw the interview,you fucked it up with the multiplayer,this game should have been single only and no answers about the single player at all,from the very little toby has revealed i wasnt impressed much,so kratos will still wield the blades of chaos,if i am not mistaken he got the blades from ares just before he had slaughtered the barbarian king and now,what...?the game was supposed to be called gow 0 but the came with ascension which was sound better and we are going to see a more humas site of kratos,like i care,all i want are the answers after the gow3 ended and they give mw a stupid stupid prwquel,good for you santa monica,the worst idea ever,you make me lost my appetite for gow,the new game willsuck,guaranteeeeee

What's with all the whining on here? It's like a requirement on gaming sites that 75% of posts are worthless complaints. Obviously they wanted to break ground with the multiplayer because it's new and doesn't have to give away any story elements. The great thing about multiplayer is that you don't have to play it if you don't want to. Save us all the time of reading your worthless posts and just shut up, or at least give an objective reason as to why you think it will suck.

I was concerned with Mass Effect 3 having multiplayer but as it turns out, it is actually pretty fun and addicting. These are talented developers, give them some credit.

How could they possibly think that multiplayer will benefit this game? It does the complete opposite. I hope they put more focus into the single player aspect and allow it to live up to the single player in the previous games, but I feel like this series is currently nose diving straight into the ground :(

I've loved god of war since the very beginning and it's my favourite game series but.... I am not impressed by what I'm reading about the mp idea. God of war to me doesn't and never will need any kind of mp and to me the very thought of the developers even considering the idea is pure madness. It won't put me off buying the game though as the story will as always be awesome. I'll try the mp and if I don't like it I won't play it simple as. It just seems to me, no matter how the dress it up, that the only reason they're including mp this time is because of sonys wonderfully lame online pass's. So when these start to pile up in 2nd hand shops Sony yet again will make a dollar. To me this is one of sonys clever hidden ways of getting back some of the money they lost durning the great "psn outage of 2011".

why does no1 like single player games anymore the stories are longer with more work put into them without multiplayer, why do you need to play a game with someone else ? hope the multiplayer doesn't have trophies only the single player, as i like to earn my trophies by myself i don't want to have help off other people it's my trophy list. how can you say you did it all yourself if you need the help of other people.trophies should just be single player to show your own skill level,plus you can't even play as kratos online and they say there will only be about 6 online levels till they sting you with dlc & a online pass.

Why do so many ppl complain? Every assasins creed mp was still as good as any other game, AC the first on had no mp and was recylced trash? So how can u explain that? Uncharted 2 and 3 were also great games and they had mp so quit complaining if you dont want it dont buy it or rent it... and for the record this will b one if the best games for ps3 mp or not.....

This series has never disappointed me, so when the director tells us that the single player story doesn't suffer under the multiplayer add-on, then I believe him.

@21 You sound like the biggest baby. Ask for help for your trophies.. If you can't get the trophy then your just not skilled enough to get it. I have games that I can't platinum due to me not taking time to master it. Most people are just crying about MP trophies not really about the MP as a whole. I can name 1 game that has a crappy online due to them taking away from the SP experience and that ratchet and clank all 4 one. I'm sure this GOW game going to be good. Plus what are people taking aboug online pass cost anything? I never once paid for a online pass. When is it not free?

@27 am I asking for any help with my trophies I said I like to do them myself, trophies should be single player only as it's a personal achievement.then if you don't like the multiplayer you don't have to play it,I personally don't like assassins creed multiplayer (some do some don't) I don't but if I buy the game I feel forced into playing multiplayer when I don't like it just so I can 100% finish a game I bought.and passes ain't free if you have more than 2 ps3s in your house (we have 4) so every time we buy a game we have 2 buy an extra pass just 2 get online with the game on another ps3.so passes do cost money for people with more than 2 ps3s I should be able to get my full game on any console I like as I pay'd for it.

take whatever side of the argument you want. the thing most of the people complaining are getting at is, MP, especially the first attempt takes up valuable development time so theres a chance the SP may suffer. To me GOW is one of the best SP games out there, purely for the story as i love Greek mythology, if theres a chance that will suffer, even slightly, thats not ok by me. Dont use games like Uncharted and Mass Effect as examples of new MP in a game working well and complimenting the game, they're 3rd person shooters, of course it was going to work. This is a different kettle of fish, im not saying it wont work, i'll reserve judgement till i try it but dont get up people for being skeptical about it or for being worried about the SP suffering. as for the setting, DAMN, it'll still be good but i was hoping the did more with Deimos, i know he was in Ghost of Sparta but in the PS3 games the hinted he would show up and he had wings. Kratos and Deimos killed the God of Death and i thought Deimos would end up the new God of Death because Kratos cant be both. as for the comments about MP taking up too much disc space, wake up, its Blue Ray! PLENTY of space

@29 why not use games like uncharted and mass effect as examples? Both sp's of uncharted and mass effect are way longer than any god of war yet and they are fine, And all you people crying about taking away from sp, how could it? Its not like any god of war game was ever long anyways they arent susposed to be, so why not throw in mp after killing your done killing gods? :)

@30 because there are a stack of 3rd person shooter MP games out there, its easy for ghem to get it done because their not constantly changing things that dont work. Putting MP into a game like GoW, you will have a lot of balancing issues and hit detection issues plus a miriad of other problems. To reiterate, im not saying it wont work, just that it will be difficult to get it right compared to an FPS or TPS.
