A second God of War: Ascension developer diary has been released by Sony Santa Monica this morning.

Showcasing the years and years of hard work that have gone into releasing the newest title in the series, 'The Desert of Lost Souls' gives us a much closer look into what went into creating Ascension. Most of the piece is spent talking about the big draw for the new title: multiplayer. 

The beta for God of War: Ascension opened last week and there is still a chance to get your cyclops stabbing on before the game drops on March 12, 2013 for PlayStation 3 exclusively. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think over on Twitter.
