“Trials of Archimedes” to be Patched in God of War: Ascension
The Trials of Archimedes are easily the most difficult part of God of War: Ascension. Essentially, the segment of the game is one long gauntlet of battles with no save checkpoints or health drops to be found. While skilled players might feel at home in the area, almost everybody else has found the location dauntingly frustrating.
To that end, we’ve put together a video guide on how to beat the Trials of Archimedes on Hard.
In any case, Sony Santa Monica is well aware of the challenge the area poses and has promised to patch the area to make it less of a frustration. The game’s lead director Todd Papy stated on Twitter that he didn’t mean for it to be so difficult.
@digyourgrave666 I personally tuned it. I didn’t mean for it to be so hard. We are looking into patching it.

He added that it’ll be patched “very soon”, though he did not offer a timeline.
