God of War: Ascension is only a few days away now, and Sony is already building on what should be a stellar experience.
A two-player co-op mode has been announced for the game; it's called Trial of the Gods and two players will battle the clock and five increasingly difficult waves of enemies. You gain a little extra time for each kill, and more seconds can be added after each wave depending on your performance. Although Trial of the Gods is specifically designed for co-op fun, it can be played all by your lonesome.
The cool part is that any experience you earn enjoying this mode will transfer over to the other multiplayer modes available. There's the always entertaining Capture the Flag (which ought to be awfully interesting in this context), Favour of the Gods, and Team Favour of the Gods. You might also be able to expect more maps in the future, as the game will release with only three (Desert of Lost Souls, Forum of Hercules and Rotunda of Olympus). We expect to see extra maps via DLC, of course.
God of War: Ascension hits store shelves on March 12.
