Sony has released a new trailer for God of War: Ascension showcasing a new multiplayer mode titled Trial of the Gods.
“In Trial of the Gods, the first two-player God of War co-op time trial mode, you and a friend will tag-team with your Champions to face five increasingly hard waves of mythological beasts, whilst surviving against the hourglass of Olympus,” Sony explains.
“Over 15 types of enemies await you, including Satyrs, Cerberuses, Cyclopes, Gorgons, Juggernauts, and more deadly creatures. You will start with a set amount of time on the clock, and win time back with every beast you slay. Decimate a wave and you will be granted a Bonus Time Tiered Award (gold, silver, or bronze) based on how fast you cleared the wave. If you die or run out of time, you’ll have to start over again. If you reach the end of the fifth round, an epic boss awaits.”
The Trial of the Gods mode will be playable on three maps at launch (Desert of Lost Souls, Forum of Hercules, and Rotunda of Olympus) and is also available to play solo. You can check out a trailer for the mode below.
