Hot on the heels of last week’s God of War: Ascension update v1.03, Sony Santa Monica has detailed some of the features that will be included in an upcoming patch, and released a brutal multiplayer trailer to entice players to the game’s online modes.

Here’s the trailer:

Some of the new features introduced in patch 1.04 include a higher level cap that rewards the most dedicated players with a new item, two new relics, and an ultimate magic for every allegiance.

Here’s a list of the other changes and fixes Sony Santa Monica is working on for the new patch, as seen on the PlayStation Blog:

Champion Stats

  • We want you to show off! You will now be able to access your accomplishments in battles from the main menu. In addition to displaying your prowess in competitive combat, from death/kill ratios to win percentages, we want to see how you are faring in Trial of the Gods. Our team hasn’t just been focusing on adding new content; we’re also working tirelessly to address prominent bugs and other issues denoted by the community.

Audio Issues

  • We are very aware of the audio drop issues many have been experiencing. This was a critical fix for this update, as a powerful and immersive audio mix is a tremendous part of the God of War experience. We apologize again for those impacted — now you’ll be able to better enjoy our sound team’s painstaking efforts.

Matchmaking Optimization

  • Our work in addressing this and getting players into matches as quick as possible is non-stop. We have already made numerous improvements based on your feedback at our boards and social channels, and have recently bolstered our ranks internally to make further improvements. You should be seeing marked improvements daily; please continue leaving any feedback in our forums.

Shard and Unlock Requirement Fixes

  • We are addressing the shard issue preventing players from attaining the Spear of Destiny and Barbarian Hammer in version 1.04 (possibly sooner), and have made additional tuning changes, namely on weapon shard drops for some of the rarer weapons, as well as unlock requirements for certain armor pieces, weapon stats, and magics.
