Train2Game news: God of War: Ascension game director hosting live stream at 4 P.M.

Train2Game students can get a first look at God of War: Ascension  when Game Director Todd Papy hosts a live stream on The PlayStation Blog at 4p.m.

The latest God of War title for PlayStation 3 is a prequel, which will introduce multiplayer to the series for the first time.

“That’s right. God of War: Ascension will feature a ground-breaking new online multiplayer mode,” said Pappy.

“We wouldn’t do multiplayer in God of War unless we knew we could do it right. That’s why I’m extremely excited to finally be able to talk publicly about it and share all the gory details with you live. I even have some exclusive gameplay footage to share with you, so be sure to tune in to see it all live.” he added.

Train2Game students interested in game design are likely to want to tune into the live stream to find out how multiplayer is going to be implemented, and how the story for God of War: Ascension is taking shape. The stream is scheduled to start at 4 and can be seen here.
