Frankly, this bit of news is crap. Uncharted 2 added multiplayer AND was substantially longer than Uncharted 1, plus improving on every single aspect, AND arriving only two years later. SSM needs to step their game up \shittypspcommercial.

Depends how good those six hours are

I'm still not sure about this, but the footage has me more interested, this could be pretty awesome depending on how they implement it. I think the GOW combat style could be alot of fun in a MP game, I'd imagine the techinical aspects and balancing will be a pain in the ass to deal with for something like this though.

Honestly, I don't think those rumours are actually true. Getting money back from used games via passes is a far lesser evil than blocking used games completely. By doing that they would really damage the industry, and I don't think either platfrom is going to take that route.

I'm not sure what MS are planning to counter 'the churn', but Sony will make the online passes far more common in all games for the platform. It's just a shame that won't translate to publishers leaving servers on for longer *cough* EA *cough*

It should have been a 30h-long game looking like Crysis 5 with no multiplayer and no Kratos. But still called god of war.

Seriously. GoW games were fun, but pretty mindless and utterly over for me after one play-through. I'm digging this development.

The whining in the thread, I said damn!

It's still looks WAY EARLY in development.
But it looks like they really FIGURED how to make the multiplayer work for a game like god of war which is great.

I hope they won't rush it. Anything less good then GOD3 is unacceptable.

I bought it, too. But not many people did, so I wouldn't use that as an example of people not caring about a game's length.

Singleplayer-gaf doing what they do best. Whether its a 5 hours game or 10 hour, you'll always get more playtime with your 60$ purchase with MP. Given the studio behind this title, how fucking awesome it looks, and just the fact that its GoW, this should be great.

Multiplayer done well can only be a good thing, it doesn't need to detract from singleplayer whatsoever. Just like there can be a bad singleplayer campaign there can be bad multiplayer so if it turns out crappy just don't play it. Problem solved.

Ok I have to admit The Gametailers video: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/fi...-of-war/729679 at around the 5 minute mark, they start talking about how the multiplayer works.

Apprently when creating your character you will pick an alligence to one of the Gods, this will allow you to perform abilities, gain armors and weapons, and add another layer to your created character.....I'm actually interested in seeing more of this, picking which God to ally yourself with is a cool concept to me.

Though really it just makes me wish that they had made a God of War RPG.

Like I said, its more about the studio behind it. I'm sure its not some out-sourced tacked-on bullshit. This looks and will probably be great.

Only 3 hours and they were godly.

If GoW:A is "only" 5 hours but it's better than that, people would still complain?

I mean, without the labyrinth section, GoW3 would've been at least a little bit better.

just watch lead combat designer interview, no blades of chaos in multiplayer. he seems like a very competent guy, his reasoning etc make sense to me. kinda excited about this. even though I don't play a lot of multi, I really want to try this. that gif with 1 player launching a dude, then a second player grab him with his chain and do some aerial combo, slam it down and the first player is reading to continue the combo looks awesome.

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping especially considering they've revamped the climbing system

Of course the map they showed didn't really have anything like that, just a tied down titan

Would love to chase down a giant cyclops on horseback with the GOW combat in place though

Hopfully that will happen at some point. They are always looking for ways to extend brands, I think MS looked into a Halo RPG years ago. I could definitely see a WRPG like Skyrim in the GoW universe.
