It's time to make the God of War: Ascension multiplayer experience even better.

Developer Sony Santa Monica has revealed a new update for the well-received title, which fixes some "key issues" the community has identified and adds a few improvements.

First up is the fact that update 1.04 will increase the allegiance level cap from 30 to 40. Those extra ten levels also bring a new item, two new relics, and ultimate magic for every allegiance. Secondly, you can now access your accomplishments in battles from the main menu (death/kill ratios, win percentages, etc.), which is great for tracking your online progress. Thirdly, the update enhances matchmaking optimization while also fixing some lingering audio issues that have plagued the experience ever since the game launched.

Lastly, many complained of a particularly frustrating shard issue that wouldn't let them grab the Spear of Destiny and Barbarian Hammer. It seems they've addressed this as well and they're also "on the cusp" of the first DLC announcements. Nice!
