The team at Sony Santa Monica has unveiled 10 new weapons for their co-op mode in God of War: Ascension. The new weapon sets have apparently been made specifically for "executing brutal Co-op Moves," according to a recent post by Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman on the PlayStation Blog.
Today, we’re pleased to unveil a whole new set of Weapons made especially for executing brutal Co-op Moves. With more than 10 possible Co-op moves, these Mythological Heroes Weapons make an excellent addition to any arsenal. The new Co-op Weapons include:
We’ve also added Mythological Heroes Armors, previously reserved for those who pre-ordered God of War: Ascension. These include the Armor of Achilles, Odysseus, Orion, and Perseus.
- Spear of Achilles
- Hammer of Odysseus
- Sword of Orion
- Sword of Perseus
For those wondering how exactly to use the weapons, Kaufman revealed that by equipping the weapons and pressing L1 Triangle or L1 Square special attacks you will be greeted with a Green Halo above your champions head that will signal for your co-op partner to tether your champion and begin the co-op move.
Check out the trailer below to see it in action. These new weapons and armour are now available on the PlayStation Network Store for PlayStation 3.
