I think it will be Axes. I think this because spears are already in the game as a *World Weapon*
It would be cool to be able to choose between like.. one handed hammers/swords/ and whatever the 3rd type is and 2 handers.. so that we could carry shields with 1 handers :-) for more defense and maybe a shield bash for O instead of a kick... and then 2handers *the ones we currently play with* could be less speedy and more powerful... like maybe longer combo capabilities with 1 handers.
If the 3rd class is axes I would like to think of it like this speed wise sword > axe > hammer-- I would def use axe.
Another good weapon type could definitely be spear... but the thing is.. a spear is sort of a *ranged item* so.. them being a world weapon is kind of cool. I wish there were different kinds of *world weapons* though. Like.. all the spears are the same.. It would be cool if there were different *world* hammers/ spears/ swords you could pick up.
If the third weapon class isn't axe.. I am really not sure what it would be.. I mean.. it could be a MACE-- like a ball and chain type deal.. but that sort of falls under the *hammer* archetype. I don't see it being a spear though.. I think the king leonidas spear will look ike a spear but sort of play like a sword or something.. Who knows.. They will probably add more weapon types via DLC later on anyway.
Hammers are a World Weapon, too. Using the Leonidas spear as a sword seems extremely unlikely. It's definitely a piercing and stabbing type of weapon.
Edit: Swords are also a World Weapon, although you can only see them in FFA. In fact, because of this, it's even more clear that the third class is spear, as then each weapon class will have one World Weapon (Kratos' Blades of Chaos aside.)
it's most likely spear and shield as Axe would be a copy of hammer save for special and brutal kills, Spear and Shield moves could include shield charge, spear barrage, shield uppercut, spear throw(maybe imbued with an element for certain versions), spear rain(of course a high cooldown), shield smash, shield boomerang, it's the most likely plus DLC gives it away XD
I love Leia, especially the way she extends my staff
Hmm may I recieve a link to the vidd plz? This also makes me wonder how deadly will the king leonidas's spear will be. I have watch 300 about 300 times and i can already see me doing sparta some justice .
The 3rd weapon class is not an Axe, there is a 4th Multiplayer Mode we have not announced but may have some relevance to something you've experienced in a past God of War game. Also, the "empty post" in Olympus isn't on accident, sort of =) hehe
We may have tipped our hat for the 3rd weapon class, but we'll leave it at that for now. And does it even end there? Well...who knows.....(this guy)!
Love these types of threads...
