Thanks to a Kotaku update on Facebook, I've just seen the trailer for the new God of War game, titled God of War: Ascension.
Although no gameplay has been revealed, a very stylish animation was shown in the trailer, with everything suggesting that this new God of War game, will in fact be a prequel.
I know, we've had Ghost of Sparta and Chains of Olympus on PSP, but this looks as though it'll be set in a time when Kratos had little to no inner demons and was just intent on destroying everything around him (killing Gods became his purpose but with all of the gods alive, set before the events of God of War 1-3, maybe we'll learn more about who he truly is/was as a mortal man).
It's been confirmed that God of War: Ascension will be a hugely ambitious title for PS3. Even more so than God of War 3, which is interesting to me as GoW3 was absolutely groundbreaking.
I personally can't wait for this, as God of War is my most favourite gaming series of all time (tied with Devil May Cry).
I'll be looking forward to seeing some gameplay and other new info as it's revealed (no doubt from E3 onwards), but in the mean time, follow this link to see the video:

Monsters of Ascension: The Furies – Megaera (concept art, interview and more!)
Enjoy expanding the image :D
I had to reduce it by 75%, still massive :D
I know its been seen else where but this is much better quality.
I predict that Acension will be the biggest flop in the series for 2 main reasons:
1) Un-needed milking. already been and done prequal that with the PSP games, many people will feel that there just isnt enough new content to justify it and buy somthing else instead.
2) Unwanted Multiplayer. Lets be honest, Sony told santa monica to add MP to attract more sales from the CoD crowd. of course the CoD crowd dont give a rats ass about GoW, and instead Sony's greed will backfire on them when fans see the 5 hour SP with no Challanges ect. and a big chunk of fans boycott the game in protest.
I also think that new directer aint got nothin on Stig, and is a bit of a douche.
LOL and LOL.
Its hardly a ''milked'' franchise when we've only had one outing on PlayStation 3 so far :| Ascension will make it 2 outings on each format except PlayStation if I'm not mistaken.
Unwanted multiplayer? COD? Have you seen the video? It doesn't look like a mindless first person shooter to me. And as a new God of War fan (thanks to the HD Collections) I can honestly say I'm really looking forwards to the MP in Ascension, which in turn will prolong the life of the game after the single player. Which to be fair no one has seen or played so cannot confirm how long, or challenging its going to be.. Or even whether its going to be effected..
I think the MP looks rather intriguing, brutal and fun to play. And I have no doubts that Sony Santa Monica wont do a good job of both games modes :Thumbs:
Here's a nice new interview which touches upon the MP
The multiplayer looks alright so far, it's never going to be the thing that I look forward to because I usually buy games for the story but I always give the multiplayer a try if I can and I usually enjoy it...It'll be interesting to see how this one ends up
This new multiplayer looks great yet confusing, they should stick in a sort of mutilpayer tutorial mode like fighting bots so we can hone our multiplayer skills and know all the things we can do online.
I am a God of War virgin, I played and enjoyed a lot the demo of *insert the title here as I can't remember* and Ascension looks even awesomer so I may grab the HD collection before this is released.
God of War - arguably best setting and level design. Hair pulling platforming and timed sequences though. difficult enough for many to give up on finishing the game.
God of War 2 - best all round game
God of War 3 - best show pony, but aside from the titan sequences I don't think it is the best PS3 game ever that many proclaim it to be. Most of the game is just PS2 era GoW in HD, the level design I don't think is as good, and the weapon/magic balance feels off..
CoO and GoS - PSP games and are great handheld games, but if I was to choose one game to play on the PS3 before Ascension, it wouldn't be one of those... certainly not CoO.
So if I was to play one game before Asencion, the first one would be the best choice, plus it'll make sense for story reasons... the second one is easier and a more fun game though, with more gameplay elements..
so your 2 reasons are actually just 2 guessings. Cod is a cheap made game and even though GoW probably won´t have more sales only cus of MP, it´s still the way better game. The thing what annoys me about Cod is that even tho it´s such a *****ty game(yes i played it myself and experienced single+multiplayer) it sells like gold. Just cus people don´t know or don´t wanna know the actually good shooters out there.
God of War: Ascension – a closer look at the single player campaign
From the PlayStation Blog: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/01/19/god-of-w
Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and daughter, his hands stained with their blood – tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken. This is where your journey in the story of God of War: Ascension begins…
…It has been well over six long, enduring months you’ve waited since your first look at our Ascension single-player campaign at E3 last year. So, as we get ready to close our multiplayer beta early next week, the time has come to focus on where Ascension and its story will take you this March. Here’s your first glimpse:
This trailer is only a quick taste. You didn’t think Ascension was only 30 seconds long, right?! We have more single-player details to unravel and showcase as we rage towards launch. Most importantly, in late February, we’re bringing you a full single player demo!
We’ll be announcing details in the coming weeks, but if you want to get in early (and earn a ton of exclusive in-game rewards), join the Rise of the Warrior experience at http://www.godofwar.com. We just re-launched with a refined interface and streamlined challenges, making your journey through its story to unlock rewards even better than before.
I was wondering when it would be set what with the events of god of war 3 and all that
although before he was known as the ghost of sparta would mean before he was tricked into killing his family...this could be interesting
HEY GUYS I NEED A MASSIVE FAVOUR CAN SOMEONE SPARE ME A BETA KEY FOR GOD OF WAR ASCENSION OR AT LEAST SELL ME 1 PLEASE :( ??
just had a go on the sp demo i got with total recall,The games looking all sorts of awsome.
graphics are gorgeous and combat was brutally violent,i also like the new fast forward/rewind time mechanics introduced to the game,repairing/decaying objects to manipulate the environment should add some nice puzzle elements into the mix,although really short the demo left me craving for more,looking forward to trying the mp beta.
Yeah it was all over the net this week Mc.
Coming exclusively to Playstation Orbis via the orbis store as a digital download only don't you know ;)
