come on, Santa Monica. when are you going to release this info on MP? it's 12 days 'til release. give it a little space to circulate first and not release it last-minute.

From twitter:

"Early-mid next week, we will finally reveal our 4th Multiplayer Mode, Poseidon/Hades, and perhaps some new maps, can you dig it?! #GodofWar" Smiley Very Happy

This is all very cool, and I hope it's true. Except I think one thing may be wrong. In the "Big Reveal" episode of "Unchained", I think it was, I spotted a guy using dual handed weapons that looked like the grabby chain things that everyone uses. It definitely wasn't Kratos' chain blade pick up. So I think it goes like this:
Zeus: Hammer
Ares: Sword
Poseidon: Spear
Hades: Dual hand

I'd be fine with either gauntlets or dual hand, ooh, I just thought, what if gauntlet IS dual hand and dual hand is gauntlet? Anyway, just my two cents.

nope. i'm 100% sure it's Zeus-Gauntlet, Hades-Hammer.

but hey, these are your starting weapons. last time i checked, zeus players can wield swords and hammers too.

maybe using their preferred weapons gets us some kind of advantage? but i've never really noticed any advantages of Ares-sword in the beta. oh well.

I think all starting weapons means is that when you're in the tutorial you start with their weapon. Ex: picking Ares in the tutorial and using his sword throughout it. Once you're out you can switch gods/ weapons etc. But in the beta when you do the tutorial and pick Zeus he gives you a hammer which is why I was skeptical. Then I thought it'd be Poseidon with the spear which is all but confirmed and Hades with the dual handed. You can check the "Big Reveal" video for yourself that's where I saw it. I'm gonna go watch it and double check.

Yeah, in the "Big Reveal" Unchained video at around the 5:50 mark they're fighting a troll, the guy on the back of the troll jumps off and he's using dual handed weapons.

Actually looking back at it I think they're both using dual hand.
