You Can Align With Ares in the God of War: Ascension Multiplayer

In case you didn’t know by now, God of War: Ascension will feature a big multiplayer component that has you aligning with certain gods to gain their strengths. Sony has released the latest god video, this time detailing Ares, the God of War before Kratos came and ended him.

Todd Papy, Game Director for God of War: Ascension, had this to say about Ares:

Warriors who align with Ares are brute force tacticians dealing a devastating array of up close attacks. These Warriors will also harness magic abilities that unleash a fiery rage, great for close quarters combat. Warriors of Ares are juggernauts who excel in close-range combat and employ powerful items that can boost their attacks, or cripple the defensive capabilities of surrounding enemies. In other words, if you like “jumping into the fire,” then aligning with Ares should be your first step.
