October 21, 2009 // 5:25 am - God of War III will not have PS3 multiplayer, and according to the title's director Stig Asmussen the underlying reason why is that it simply wouldn't fit.

This was recently revealed in an interview with GamePro, to quote:

"With God of War 3, there's a story we want to tell and an experience we want to deliver, and multiplayer doesn't fit into that." said the games producer Stig Asmussen.

"Imagine two Kratos characters running around at the same time. Once you do that, the story becomes something more about an experience between two players and less about something that we're scripting."

"So, you have something like Left 4 Dead, which is sweet, but we just decided with this game, there's a certain way that we want to tell it. And staying with what we've done in the past, we want to complete the story in a way that was familiar to everybody."

He did, however, hint at new challenge rooms in the form of DLC: "It would make a lot of sense to be able to download them. That's something we might see in the future." adding "It's a good way to keep the series going."

more coop multiplayer seems proper than deathmatch multiplayer. But I do see the Director's point... the whole purpose of the game is to have a kick-ass singleplayer experience, which every other iteration of GOW has done.

I don't know about the director, but for me multiplayer would have been cool.

I would have liked the multiplayer to let us select any character from the game (including other gods). That would have made it cool.
