We’ve been playing through God Of War: Ascension for the last week or so now, and our review will land tomorrow. Until then, note how Sony have – with a limited degree of subtlety – aped the rather raucous (and enjoyable, let’s admit) 300 film with this latest trailer.
Yes! That’s the Persian pit. Yes! He does kick someone down it. Yes! He looks like King Leonidas. And, yes, the video says THIS IS SPARTA! in big letters. Even that silly beard is there.
They’re not holding back – this is a Gamestop exclusive bit of content (assuming you’re in the US): buy it from them and you’ll get to pretend you’re Gerard Butler and be even more angry than Kratos himself. In multiplayer, of course.
All eyes on tomorrow.
