God of War: Ascension

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:

 

Enjoy!

Sooo happy for this reveal. It made me realise I still had to pick up the 2 PSP games in the Volume 2 Collection ;)

Think I'm half way through Chains of Olympus and its getting quite unforgiving on Spartan difficulty :( Had some quite unfair battles that have tested the old nerves :( But I will press on and otherwise enjoying it ;)

I went to purchase a new controller at my local game shop and the employee told me about it.

Without skipping a beat I pre-ordered two copies ~ 1 for  me and one for my friend. So far I've loved all the games in the series.

I'm a huge fan of the whole series and I'll be getting Ascension for sure, but I don't think that it'll have such as interesting story as GoW III. But I'm sure that it'll be a great title with a lot of sold copies.

Nice interview, think we can assume that the Santa Monica team are going to give us one hell of a game. Liking the idea of a more fragile and vulnerable kratos. Still not sure about the multipayer aspect of the game, not convinced that god of war needs it.

Hi everyone,

 

This was posted on the PlayStation Blog yesterday.

 

 

"From a titan-sized showdown with Ares to battling Zeus at Gaia’s heart, the antagonists of God of War have provided some of the most memorable encounters in gaming history. Ascension promises to continue with this tradition by introducing a challenge that will push Kratos to his physical, mental, and spiritual limits, to say the least. In God of War: Ascension, Kratos is sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, and will battle insanity at the hands of the Furies – perhaps the most terrifying spectres of the ancient world. The six-legged fury Megaera is the first of 3 to be revealed in our latest Monsters of Ascension with Lead Concept Artist, Izzy – the mastermind behind their creation, and many other “Monsters” of God of War."

Not sure of a price yet, I'd suggest keeping your eyes on amazon and the like.
