God of War: Ascension has been out for some time now and while the game's multiplayer isn't necessarily the biggest hit, this latest DLC is particularly interesting. The "Mythological Heroes Weapons" are four new multiplayer weapons that introduce over 10 possible cooperative combos to the game. That's right, equip a weapon, start a combo and hope a teammate joins in for epic mayhem.
Included in the DLC pack are the following four weapons:
- Spear of Achilles
- Hammer of Odysseus
- Sword of Orion
- Sword of Perseus
I'm actually pretty fascinated by these new weapon types, though I'm not particularly informed when it comes to God of War: Ascension's multiplayer. Just the idea of being able to prepare a cooperative combination which requires at least some timing and teamwork with another player is... well, it's an outstanding idea. I'd love to see these sorts of combinations added to lots of games, whether they be third-person games, MOBA, or heck even competitive FPS.
Good to see God of War: Ascension and the developer team at Sony Santa Monica Studio are still having fun and experimenting. The "Mythological Heroes Weapons" pack should be available right now, though for some reason details for the pack blatantly avoid listing the price. Comparable weapon packs are between $5-$10, which to be honest seems completely ridiculous unless you love the game. I guess that's why they don't list the price?
