God of War 4 having online co-op has been rumored ever since hints showed up that Kratos’ brother may somehow help out during Kratos’ next adventure.
The UK’s PlayStation 3 Magazine (PSM3) January 2012 issue reports that the so-far unannounced God of War 4 will feature an online co-op mode, which coincided with a job listing a year ago from Sony Santa Monica needing a “senior online programmer” for the God of War team. The magazine previously stated the God of War 4 release date would land in 2012.
If you haven’t played all the God of War games yet, here’s your spoiler alert…
To quote PSM3 magazine’s rumors:
“Why is it hot? It’s bringing double Kratos to the series. GOW4 was confirmed to PSM3 mid-2011 by a reliable source, and rumours point to a multiplayer twist. Mad idea? Online co-op with a (possibly) dead Kratos and (very) dead brother Deimos teaming up to escape the afterlife.”
