Independent gaming outlet, PlayStation Gang, is reporting that leaked footage from God of War IV has hit the net. The 68-second teaser is mostly panning shots of fancy-looking artwork and inaudible voice-overs, though the iconic booming of Terrence C. Carson is nowhere to be heard.
Here’s a transcript of the trailer dialogue, make of it what you will:
The phoenix has-been drinking your blood, full of your anger, your strength, and During her rebirth, she Also has let you in life.
Now I ask you, what are you going to do … would you leave me here in hell?
Kratos, wake up, wake up!
There’s the smallest chance that it could be legit, though there are a number of factors that would suggest otherwise. The new PlayStation intro is present, though the Santa Monica Studios logo remains unchanged since it first appeared in God of War III.
An ESRB is also present at the beginning of the trailer, though no such game under the name God of War IV has been filed (to our knowledge.) Usually when we spot debut trailers we’re shown the RP/Rating Pending icon, even if the game is clearly meant for adult audiences.
