God of War: Ascension’s competitive component is already out in the wild thanks to the recent launch of the multiplayer beta for PlayStation Plus members. The beta serves up a decent slice of the game’s multiplayer mode so you can decide for yourself whether this unexpected addition is an asset or a liability to the latest entry in the God of War series.
Santa Monica Studio recently released a new developer diary for God of War: Ascension, this time focusing on how the game’s multiplayer component was handled entirely in-house, and on how challenging it was for the team to create a compelling online God of War experience that has minimal lag and exemplary matchmaking.
