God of War Ascension Combos

Weapons and Combos

The God of War series has always been well known for its insane gameplay action and combo-centric combat system. Just know Ascension doesn’t fall short on either plateau. While having one enemy gripped with the Blades of Chaos, it’s pretty sweet that you can lunge the same for at a sea of enemies, similar to like a wrecking ball. As the enemy gets weaker, you’ll notice a red line over his head, which means it’s time to either rip’em in half or perform a special move. The Rage meter is different this time around. Once full, the ability is automatically activated and remains that way until Katros is attacked (or if you stop attacking for a current period of time). The feature is affected by whatever magic is equipped, letting Kratos unleash different devastating attacks.

Three new relics have been added: Amulet of Uroborus, Oath Stone of Orkos, and Eyes of Truth. The former allows Kratos to manipulate time by decaying or healing objects. Ex: he can rebuild a broken bride or destroy it depending on the goal. The amulet can be used on enemies as well, levitating them and drastically slowing them down for a brief moment. The Oath Stone gives Kratos the ability to be in two places at once and the Eyes of Truth removes illusion created by the Furies and cast something called the blinding light that can be used against enemies. And we haven’t even touched on the character’s magical abilities.
