God of War: Ascension is set for March 12. But if you can't wait, if you want to take a peek behind the scenes at how this next great installment was made, Sony Santa Monica has a treat for you.

Go behind the scenes in this fresh "A New Beginning Trailer," which takes you inside the studio and gives you an idea of what it takes to put this project together. If you hadn't guessed, it requires a lot of time, a lot of talent, and a lot of dedication.

They talk about how they incorporated multiplayer into what was a quintessential single-player experience, and how they wanted to maintain the general feel and integrity of God of War . There's some discussion about level design and mechanics as well, so for those of you who are always interested in the nitty gritty, in the nuts and bolts of a video game, you'll want to check this out.

I'm really excited in the multiplayer. My only concern is something they talked about in the video the latency aspects. I can see this being really frustrating if it is Peer to Peer and host has advantage and they just use a matchmaking system.

If they go with servers like Starhawk did then I think this could be one of the most interesting multiplayer games I have seen in some time.

I spent some time with the beta last night. While there was some lag, it was quite playable. I had some good fun with it. I felt myself wanting to cast aside all other inhibitions and just veg-out playing it…
for that reason haha I thought, "yea, I better not get hooked while I'm busy with lots of other obligations."

It's great seeing something sort of like a CoD or something but as an action game slasher, like GoW. I did enjoy NG3 pretty well online too. Unfortunately that one suffered from bad lag.

They can probably keep things in check in the usual manner, making the graphics worse in MP.

I'm still not sold on the multiplayer, but I can't wait for Kratos's next adventure!

"The mandate on this is… it's a multiplayer game."

A chilling, terrifying revelation from Papy and confirmation that this prequel was always just a vehicle to attempt MP in GOW.

Can't wait for this game, played the demo that came with my Total Recall movie and loved every bit of it.
