Late last month we got a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the development of God of War: Ascension’s team-based competitive multiplayer as developers at Sony Santa Monica discussed what goes into the making of a bloody, brutal battle arena.
The team has released the second in a series of developer diaries, this time talking about the challenges of creating the arenas and gameplay experiences that they want, while staying true to God of War and ensuring its a fun, frustration-free time.
If you’re even remotely interested in God of War and the prospect of Ascension’s multiplayer, this is a must-watch:
