There are plenty of things to do in God of War: Ascension's multiplayer, but there's one thing above all that you'll be doing more than anything else: killing.

Multiplayer battles in Ascension are all about who gets the first hit in, but there are always opportunities to reverse your fortunes—a well-timed parry or dodge can give you the upper hand, and you can always surprise your opponent with some magic you've been holding in reserve. There's plenty of strategy involved.
