God of War: Ascension Download 1.03 Patch Now Available

god of war: ascension patch

Sony Santa Monica has now released download patch 1.03 for God of War: Ascension which is available now.

The update addresses two issues players were having during the multiplayer portion of the game. Santa Monica is also currently addressing multiplayer issues from the game too with future download patches.

Here’s what Santa Monica had to say about download patch 1.03 for God of War: Ascension:

“Though small this 1.03 update may be, we addressed an issue that was preventing some players from progressing past the Manticore battle in Chapter 27. We have also addressed the Trial of Archimedes:

We received extensive feedback from the community that the “Trial of Archimedes” section (Chapter 28) near the end of the game was excessively challenging. In every God of War game, establishing a well-paced difficulty ramp towards the end of the game is paramount to us. Based on player response, the degree of challenge offered here was short of our goal of being perfectly balanced.

In the 1.03 update, at the end of each elevator stage (3 total), players will now receive a measured amount of Green Health Orbs and a nominal amount of Blue Magic Orbs back. This change affects all difficulty levels. We are confident this revision will address feedback regarding “Trial of Archimedes” while still preserving the level of challenge appropriate for this late section of the game.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. Good fortunes in your quest to conquer the Trial of Archimedes and complete Kratos’ ascension!”

This will come as great news for gamers that were struggling to complete the game. The “Trial of Archimedes” near the end of the game was considered very difficult to complete for a number of gamers.

    Pathetic. It should be easier only on very easy, easy. On Normal I did it in 2nd try. Wasnt that hard – before patch. I dont get it, people need to learn how to play properly – not only 2 buttons.

    @ David

    You can always not install the patch and do the part as the developers originally intended.

    If you think you’re too “hardcore” for the patch, DON’T DOWNLOAD IT, problem solved. Your attempt at looking tough is pathetic, get a life. This is a free country, we can download the patch and enjoy a game the way it was meant to be (not broken like it was before the patch) if we want. If you don’t like the patch, don’t force everyone else to not be able to get it.

    Just as I’ve completed the Trail Of Archimedes (which took my quite a few attempts) they make it easier, at least when it will help me on Titan mode.
