We had good things to say about the multiplayer portion of God Of War Ascension, but the single player’s been somewhat off limits apart from the playable section we’ve seen countless times (and has since surfaced on the Total Recall Blu-ray).
These newly found concept images show some of the scale and scope of the game, though, and although they mostly adhere to the same sort of stylings we’ve seen in previous games, there’s enough variety here to whet the appetite.
There’s a slightly rickety, fragile look to some of the environments here, and a whimsical, floaty feel to a couple of the others. That would reflect the game’s origins, being the first in the saga, where Kratos is yet to gain much of his powers.
The game is out early this year on PlayStation 3.
