God of War: Ascension Update 1.03 Tweaks Trial of Archimedes, Adds Customization Features

The PlayStation Blog announced the release of its latest God of War: Ascention 1.03 update.

The update throws an added support line at the Trial of Archimedes, and enhances multiplayer customisation with a new appearance feature for your Champion – “Marks”.

‘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.’

‘As noted, 1.03 also adds “Marks” for added customization to your Champion in multiplayer, and eight additional new tints, including “Ash”. Now you have an opportunity to become a “Marked Warrior”.’

Here are the six mark’s that were added in this update, with more to come:

  • Mark of the Thief, for HADES
  • Mark of the Trojan, for ALL
  • Mark of the Spartan, for ALL
  • Mark of the Legionnaire, for ARES
  • Mark of the Mercenary, for ZEUS
  • Mark of the Deep, for POSEIDON
