God of War: Ascension trailer touts benefits of allying with the god of the dead

As this God of War: Ascension trailer shows, joining the lord of the underworld isn't always a bad idea.

In Ascension's multiplayer mode, players may pledge their allegiance to one of the Olympian gods, and one's chosen patron deity influences the ability one has in combat. Players who join up with Hades, god of the netherworld, receive necromantic powers that allow them to turn invisible, curse foes and drain their health and life essence.

Polygon's own Arthur Gies praised God of War: Ascension praised the game's multiplayer modes in our official review, saying that it was "easily the best realization of a third-person action game translated to online multiplayer."

God of War: Ascension comes out today for PlayStation 3.
