Back in March, "God of War: Ascension" was released exclusively to the PlayStation 3. And with the launch the games creators tried something they've never attempted in previous "God of War" titles, they added multiplayer functionality.

The online modes for multiplayer have found a faithful following since then and now it has been reported that Ascension has a new multiplayer function and a set of new maps.

The new multiplayer mode is called Bout of Honor and will be included in update 1.09. Bout of Honor is virtually a fighting game within Ascension. It's a 1-on-1 mode that pits two online players against each other in a best-of-seven battle to the death.

In this mode it is reported that matches have no help items available at all. So no fountains, chest or random weapons. Also magic is scarce and relics are disabled.

The new multiplayer mode totes four brand new maps specifically catered to this mode. The maps are called Canyon of Kirra, Chamber of the Flame, Landing at Delos and Street of Sparta.

There is also a map called Whirlpool of Alecto that lets you play Favor of the Gods with three of your friends.

What do you think of Bout of Honor for "God of War: Ascension?"
