God Of War 4 Tidbits: Multiplayer And Timothy Williams
News about the upcoming – and, I think, not really necessary – God of War 4 snuck out over the weekend, and it’s pretty juicy. If, that is, you find an already declining series jumping on an in-danger-of-being-completely-played-out gaming fad to be juicy. The UK version of PSM is reporting that the 4th installment in the saga of Kratos will feature online co-op multiplayer:
It’s bringing double Kratos to the series. GOW4 was confirmed to PSM3 mid-2011 by a reliable source, and rumours point to a multiplayer twist. Mad idea? Online co-op with a (possibly) dead Kratos and (very) dead brother Deimos teaming up to escape the afterlife.
Count me among those who just said ‘yuck’. Then again, I wasn’t a big fan of God of War 3 either. It’s a game I feel, incidentally, to have been transparently a tarted up Playstation 2 game ported at the last moment to Playstation 3, and to have suffered as a result. But who knows, maybe 4 will turn out to be great. And helping to make that happen is the news that Defense of the Ancients composer Timothy Williams (who also worked on films like Watchmen and Sucker Punch) will be scoring it. He’s apparently added it to his resume (link is up and down).
