A new trailer for God of War: Ascension has been released by Sony, which is there way of confirming a co-op mode in the game.
In the game’s Trial of the Gods mode, two players can enter the ring to fight off against five waves of ferocious enemies, all within a time limit. Based on how fast you manage to clear each wave, you will earn additional time, with a boss fight at the end of the fifth wave.
The co-op mode will also grant players access to abilities which will normally not be available in the single-player. For example there is one where you can crouch, while your partner uses your back as a launch-pad to perform some sick aerial assault on enemies.
When God of War: Ascension releases, the Trial of the Gods mode will be available on three of the game’s maps: Desert of Lost Souls, Forum of Hercules, and Rotunda of Olympus. More maps are being planned for later.
