It’s real, then – the new God of War game is called Ascension, and it’s for PS3. We’ll hopefully get full details today but for now the teaser is above, so enjoy.
“Many know the story of Kratos,” says the trailer, “the mortal turned god who brought down the very walls of Olympus, but there was a time before Kratos became the monster known as the Ghost of Sparta.”
“A time where something other than rage consumed him. A time when, in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. A time when he would no longer be bound in blood.”
That all clearly sets up the game as pre-Ghost of Sparta, so it’s the first game in the series by my reckoning.
