The Barbarian King, a top player in God of War: Ascension, gives us some great pointers for the game’s multiplayer matches. God of War: Ascension came out March 12nd of last year for PS3 exclusively.
One of the key elements of the multiplayer is to learn how and when to dodge attacks. When you character hits the ground and cannot quick recover, you can use a mechanic called a Tech Roll. You can tell when to use it if your character bounces; wait until he comes to rest, then hit the R stick in the direction you want to roll in. This allows your character to recover and retaliate with his own attack. Also, instead of rolling out of danger, you can have your character roll and then quickly attack the opponent to take them by surprise.
Watch the trailer below to learn how to master the Tech Roll.
