God of War IV hasn’t even been announced yet, but already reports are surfacing of an online Co-op mode.
Beware, potential spoilers ahead!
PSM3 who is said to have a reliable source has said that the co-op mode will feature a dead Kratos fighting alongside his brother his dead brother Deimos. Supposedly they are fighting to find a way out of the afterlife (perhaps attempting to find a way to regain their lives?). A transcript of the article in the latest PSM3 reads…
“Why is it hot? It’s bringing double Kratos to the series. GOW4 was confirmed to PSM3 mid-2011 by a reliable source, and rumours point to a multiplayer twist. Mad idea? Online co-op with a (possibly) dead Kratos and (very) dead brother Deimos teaming up to escape the afterlife.”
Adding co-op to a game like God of War is a big deal, but Sony Santa Monica are no slouches, so I’m sure they can pull it off to where it wont feel cheap. Be sure to share your thoughts on this.
