    I’m still not sure how I feel about multiplayer being in God of War

    • Bobby Jennings

      That’s what I said. But the multiplayer is actually really fun!(The Capture the flag is boring however) and the way they handled the combat is done well. Though Zeus is pretty OP at this moment in the beta.

      • AnimusVox

        That’s good to hear. I did say the same about Assassin’s Creed and ended up really enjoying it.

    they show a lot of attention for the multiplayer, this is worrying me that the single player campaign could be weaker, hopefully not, no one asked for multiplayer.

  • FetusZero

    Soo.. when will we even see single player? Remember Sony.. God of War got where it is thanks to us, single players.. don’t go mess it up like every franchise that tries to add multiplayer where it doesn’t belong.

    Hmm, though a lot of people seem to be voicing out how they don’t really care for the multiplayer… I feel like we should give it a chance, ya know. I mean, sure God of War has always been single player, but the way they’re making the transition seems like a well-planned decision, and it looks like they’ve been putting the effort to not make it feel out of place in the GoW style/universe.
