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.
I am automatically on board on this one. God of War is the most brutal and action packed series of all.
not impressed....hahaha who am i kidding, I'm freakin' stoked already!!! :)
hmm.. I don't know about that choice.
Why not take that GoW format and introduce a new character and a new set of gods which would naturally entail changing gameplay and game mechanics in relevant and interesting ways?
I am sure the game will be good, but I hope they don't think Kratos can't wear out his welcome.
SO LOOKING FORWARD TO IT
I likey, I might buy this just for these two reason's 1) Hedi from NCIS LA is the narrator. and 2) I just want to beat the crud out of stuff.
As long as it's a prequel, then we are all good. I was afraid it was a continuation. Cool.
WOOHOO! im loving this!
I have to say, I'm a little disappointed here. I was expecting either a sequel continuing Krato's story or a sequel with a new protagonist, not a prequel. I'm still going to play God Of War: Ascension but as I said, finding out that this new title is a prequel is definitely a disappointment.
The video sort of confuses me. The woman is talking like this game is set before he becomes the Ghost of Sparta, and yet, the whole trailer shows him bound in blood/chains. So what's going on here?
Kinda disappointed its not a sequel, but glad we're getting a new gow game.
The box art looks good
