  • Santa Monica Teasing God of War Announcement Incoming, New GoW Game for PS4?

    Santa Monica via their official Twitter account have teased some sort of new God of War announcement. Is this teaser related to new God of War game or a new map pack for God of War: Ascension?, no details yet.

    God of War: AscensionA recent tweet from Santa Monica reads "Incoming Soon #GodofWar". The tweet also features an Instagram link which is of a short video that shows a group fighting in a coliseum of sorts.

    Fans should kept their exciting level under control and should presume that this teaser tweet is related to some sort of DLC for God of War: Ascension multiplayer modes. Anything else would seem a little much for a random Tweet and an instagram video.

    Check out the tween from Santa Monica below.

  • God of War: Ascension Patch 1.09 Live Now, Official Changelog Revealed

    Sony and Santa Monica has released new patch 1.09 for their PS3 exclusive game "God of War: Ascension". This latest patch adss 1 vs 1 mode and few new maps, details of which is listed below.

    God of War: AscensionGod of War: Ascension Patch 1.09 Changelog:

    All/Misc Spears

    • Air triangle move has had its range and timing slightly improved. It
      should now be more viable from a distance, and also air to ground.
    • The spear delay square attack has had its ranged appropriately
      increased so it should be a more viable mix up option for a quick/go-to
      unblockable, especially in 1v1 play.

    Blade of Poseidon

    • Fixed a bug where the air version of the triangle special would
      occasionally play no effect but still hit opponents (occasionally
      recovery could also be unfairly cancelled.)

    Blade of Zeus

    • The start-up time of the L1 triangle in the air is now closer to its ground counterpart

    Juggles, Hit Reactions/Misc

    • The frames where players were allowed to cancel and recover from
      hit-stun during certain extended combos have been adjusted to allow
      players to escape as intended.
    • This was also the existing functionality, however in certain
      occasions of lag or low performance, that window was extended which
      would allow both players to combo when they shouldn’t have, and for
      players to escape when they should be getting combo’d. This has been
      adjusted to be consistent across the board.
    • A bug has also been fixed where players would appear to glow white /
      invulnerable, but they were not technically invulnerable/ in a recovery
      state yet. The visuals now match the functionality.

    Infinite/1 –hit Combos

    • Several 1-hit combos have been adjusted to prevent “re-juggling” of
      opponents mid combo string. The hits themselves will stand land, however
      they will cause a reset-hit rather than a re-juggle. This only affects a
      handful of weapons, and specific combos.

    Poseidon Hammer Stats

    • Adjusted the stats slightly of the Poseidon armor. It was giving slightly too much physical resist

  • God of War: Ascension and GoW3 for PS4?, "Could Be Done" says Santa Monica

    Could God of War: Ascension and God of War 3 arrive on PS4?. Eurogamer recently asked this to Ben Diamand, Graphics Engineer at Sony Santa Monica. The reply that came from Ben Diamand is interesting enough to excite fans.

    God of War: Ascension on PS4Eurogamer first asked Ben what he personally thinks about Playstation 4?. To this Ben replied, "It’s definitely got its share of interesting challenges – filling up that much memory from disk takes some time. From a technical standpoint, the DDR5 part is perhaps more interesting to me. But the 8GB part makes me pretty happy, too, since I think it makes a powerful PR statement."

    Ben was further quizzed, how difficult it would be to bring God of War 3 and God of War: Ascension onto PS4?. Here is what Ben replied:

    "Our approach is not really ‘to the metal’. It never really has been, and people are surprised every time we say this. Yes, we optimise, sometimes a lot, but we try to be smart about when and where. As for God of War and PS4, I couldn’t possibly comment on anything ‘future’"

    Ben further went on to state, "It could be done. The PS4 hardware is such a big leap forward in terms of graphics power compared to the PS3 that we probably wouldn’t need to go that far. Most if not all of the SPU techniques we developed and used on PS3 were there to reduce the RSX workload. With the PS4 GPU we probably wouldn’t need those techniques."

    Chances of God of War: Ascension and God of War 3 arriving on PS4 is slim at the moment but how can we forget the treatment PS3 has received (numerous PS2 games, both upscaled and simple ports).

    Would you guys like to see upgrade port of either GoW: Ascension of GoW3 on PS4?. Let us know your views in the comment section below.

  • God of War: Ascesnion Development Budget was $50 million: Report

    According to reports coming out from German gaming website "20 Minuten", Sony spent whooping $50 million on God of War: Ascension. However no details has been revealed whether this $50 million includes development as well as marketing costs.

    God of War: AscensionWhitney Wade, Lead producer said to 20 Minuten (translated) "For God of War: Ascension a mid double-digit million amount was invested,"

    Going by the sales figure of God of War: Ascension Sony will easily be able to recover the development cost (NOTE: God of War III (development cost $44 million) went on to sell around 5 million units, Ascension won't be able to match that but recovering development cost won't be a tough task for Sony).
