The lights are on
Update: Sony has officially announced God of War: Ascension, and the company is promising more details very soon.
Sony's official PlayStation Blog and the game's Facebook page will feature a live streaming event on April 30, at 10 AM central time that promises more info on the game, including a Q&A with game director Todd Pappy from Sony Santa Monica. Head over to the official blog for more details on how you can participate.
Original Story: It seems Amazon jumped the gun with Sony's suspected God of War reveal by publishing the game's product page a day early.
God of War: Ascension for PlayStation 3 seems to be a prequel to the original trilogy, before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta. Not much else is known about the story, however. The listing notes, "Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far."
The product page, which is active at the time of this publishing, also contains a short CG teaser trailer. The listing indicates the game is out sometime in 2013, but no official release date has been revealed.
"There was a time before we made lots of money, before he was called the Ghost of Sparta"
Nah, but I love these games, and will probably love this one, too.
I cannot say no to more Kratos. Keep'em coming, Sony!
Didn't really want a prequel, but as long as it retains the series quality I'll pick it up.
Oh boy!!!!!!! Here we go!!!!!! More Kratos Carnage!!!
whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhy a prequel whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy god i hate prequels go forward not backwards.
AGH! Finally! Although I'm bummed its a prequel, it will be good! I hope we see Dionysus. Just his presence would be amazing! But this definetely wont beat God of War 3.
Keep the next-gen on current-gens coming!
So is this a prequel story?
Damn! That artwork is so amazing!!
Thank god it's not a sequel, I feel that (especially after watching the Game Devs Live video) GOWIII had the perfect ending to the series. Here' hoping this will be on par with Ghost of Sparta in terms of Narrative. GoS IS also my favorite GOW Game PERIOD, so, yeah.
A thing of beauty.
can't wait!!! hype hype hype!
ahhh too bad for sony's big unveil,looks like someone just craped in your cereal.
