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.
cant wait for this game long live kratos!!
They keep making God of War games, and I keep giving them my money. Will I ever tire of it? I doubt it!
Looks pretty sweet.
So which gods will Kratos kill in this prequel?
XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! I am so geeked right now!
I can't even imagine what this game will entail. After playing the whole series (Chains of Olympus, God of War 1, Ghost of Sparta, God of War 2, God of War 3), I haven't the faintest idea of where and when this game will take place. All I know is that it's going to be another amazing, visceral experience, though I'll be damned if they can top God of War 3. I mean, he does kill EVERYONE in Olympus >_>
Can't wait :D
Capcom or gtfo
"A time where he will no longer be bound in blood." This line throws a curve ball into the prequel thing. Because I don't want to play as General Kratos not one bit...sorry Sony, I hope you go the route I'm thinking and have this be an actual sequel...because General Kratos doesn't sound as awesome as Ghost of Sparta
Oh boy... a prequel.
so i presumed this will be at $60..
Its going to be awesome! (As usual)
I though he already tried this a few past games. I was looking forward to a part four but this is quite satisfying.
Ha! Take that! Thx Amazon!
But seriously they need to stop milking GOW with prequels, though they can't go any other way obviously.
This is quite possibly my favorite series of all time. I wasn't sure if making another one was a good idea, I'm still not sure if it is. They're making it though and there's nothing I can do but wish that it's just as amazing as 3 was.
ohh nooo..they will probably ruin the story..this should have been a new trilogy with a new protagonist
