Take a look at the latest multiplayer behind the scenes video on IGN today... i dont reacall exactely when, but mid video, you see a couple of guys talking and on the far back rigth computer you see a bunch of swords, some of them look very similar but with diferent ligth efects and magic stuffs.
I think it will happen.
I got super pumped.
Well metl, here's the vid.

I'll post times where you can see for yourself different colors for stuff. Though I noticed, all of the glowing was purple so MAYBE...it's a buff for Hades but I'm hoping that it's in fact a high level perk much like we've suggested with our items.
Also I'm going to update my post with an AWESOME idea I just had..it'll have "edit" in it so you know exactly what I'm talking about.
0:28 - you can see a purple glowing sword, a sword with purple glowing glyphs lighting up on the blade, and someone using a spear/trident as the third weapon class. Plus a new map!
0:35 - Looks to be purple glowing guy using Hades item (escape obviously)
0:51 - Looks to be some sand village other than the desert of lost souls we see in the beta.
0:57 - you can see the guy's hand glowing purple once again might be a Hades ability. Most of the glowing is purple.
0:58 - Hmm...purple glow on an ares player...hmm interesting...it surrounds the body so it might be a team buff. I'm going to label all of these as buffs but I'm really hoping it's not. I'd love me some unlockable glowies.
2:49 - YEEEEEEEEES. Glowing weapons! Check the screen behind the guy GLOWING WEAPONS MOFO! You can even kind of make out the sword underneith which is perfect. Glow for each class too...fire for Ares, lightning for Zeus, water for poseidon, purple for Hades. Now, if only we could get this for the whole character or just armor.
3:09 - possible new map.
3:21 - Bottom left screen, character seems to have purple flames coming out the back upper side of the armor.
3:27 - Top right screen, character is surrounded by a purple aura.
3:28 - Camera zooms in for a grapple and OMG does this glow look cool! Dark clouds with a purple glow on the inside. SIIIIICK.
3:46 - Crazy helmet bottom left screen, top right see an item use but can't tell if the glow is from the item use or not.
3:56 - Floating character with some form of crazy AoE magic. Very hard to see.
4:01 - Seems to be a really in depth list of something, might be a program they're using to develop the game but who knows at this point.
4:01 (continued) - Yep...unfortunately looks like the purple glow was from some sort of item use...bummer... you can see he isnt' glowing then as he uses an item starts to glow. But then again, the glow I pointed out was much bigger.
4:24 - Hard to see but when someone uses the L1 + triangle spinning heavy attack there's a cool purple trail behind the blade. Very easy to miss it goes by fast.
4:27 - more purple glowing goodness.
4:40 - Some floating heads around the player.
4:46 - Guy performing a brutal kill with a purple glow around his hand, definitely seems like a buff. Lots of freakin purple glows...
Also worth looking into!
"evil ways" trailer has been out for a while but...
0:13 - You can see his sword "steaming" letting off some kind of purple mist as he unsheiths it.
0:32 - It extends a bit past this and a bit before but you can see the trim on his armor is gold instead of silver. Isn't the beta version silver? Looks kind of odd during gameplay because everything seems so unnaturally bright but in the cutscene it looks beast. Everythings a lot darker.
0:48 - Blue trail behind poseidon's sword but then again this might not be special as ares seems to have a flaming trail behind his attacks too, just not as noticable I guess.
1:23 - This is what inspired me to edit my post and add this video. You can see the blade of Zeus have white lightning slither down his blade...much like the enchants we've been talking about and being oh so dynamic rather than having it pooke out of the sword. Both would be cool, but I like how it actually reacts to the swords form...gives it a really cool look...though of course it's a CGI cutscene but it still could be possible.
