Free God of War: Ascension Update Adds 1v1 mode and new Maps

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.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
