Finally, after a week of teasing, Sony have released the full live action trailer for God Of War: Ascension. It’s a little different from what we’ve seen before and Kratos looks a little bit off, but it’s moody and sets the tone for the lead character’s anger and anguish nicely.
Ascension is set before the first God of War game, and tells a more human story with Kratos dealing with plenty of pain and suffering, the catalysts for which are evident in the trailer.
The video was put together by Imaginary Forces, who have also done some of the cut scenes in the game itself. The trailer features a special version of Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On” and according to Santa Monica is “the biggest production we’ve ever undertaken for a God of War commercial or trailer, or for any PS3 game for that matter.”
