God of War: Ascension’s Trials of Archimedes “Will Still be Hard on Hard,” Update on PSN Release Hopefully Soon

March 18, 2013Written by Jason Dunning

There was a little bit of outcry when Todd Papy announced that a patch was being worked on to make the much maligned Trials of Archimedes easier. If you haven’t listened to it yet, Sebastian goes off a little bit on the matter during this week’s Bad Gamers, but basically the consensus is that if it was made to be hard, it shouldn’t be toned down.

Sony Santa Monica has since clarified the patch details by saying that “the Trials of Archimedes will still be HARD on HARD, we are tweaking primarily for Normal, so to all, you can still have it the HARD WAY.”

As for that elusive PSN download version for God of War: Ascension, SSM mentioned that “we have not officially commented on a digital download release but hope to have an update soon in regards to.” With a release said to possibly be this week, if it is happening, we should know within the next 24 hours or so.

Are you glad that a play through of Ascension on Hard will still feature the extremely difficult Trials of Archimedes, and not an easier one? Let us know in the comments below.
