God of War: Ascension has received a free update titled “Bout of Honor” which adds five new maps to the game’s multiplayer and one-on-one fighting.

“Bout of Honor is a true contest of skill with no chests, fountains, or world weapons to aid you. This mode also disables relics and allows for a Champion’s magic to regenerate over time,” the developer states.

The new mode comes with four maps “specifically crafted for Bout of Honor”: Canyons of Kirra, Chamber of the Flame, Landing at Delos, and Streets of Sparta. The gameplay has also been tweaked, “Infinites have been removed, overpowered weapons tweaked, and damage from 100% combos adjusted,” Sony explains.

The update also adds a new four-player map, The Whirlpool of Alecto, which “features a giant leviathan whose sole purpose is to unleash Alecto’s fury in the form of physical pain onto any unsuspecting warrior careless enough to venture into its domain.”

You can check out a trailer for the update below.
