Starting today, PlayStation Plus users can download the multiplayer beta for God of War: Ascension. The beta features two of the four God Allegiances (Zeus and Ares) and three modes: eight-player Capture the Flag or Team Favor of the Gods, and four-player Free For All. There are two maps, the large Desert of Lost Souls map and the Forum of Hercules arena. The beta is capped at level 30 and will allow customization with a "vast" amount of weapons and objects.

The final game will have the Hades and Poseidon God Allegiances, a third weapon class, more maps and customization options, the "Team Up With Friends" multiplayer mode, and a fourth, unannounced multiplayer mode where we assume killing more things will play a crucial role.
