Everything Kratos ever loved, taken away.

God of War: Ascension

Sony and SCE Santa Monica Studio have released a 30-second single-player trailer for God of War: Ascension, showing Kratos have everything he loved taken away from him. Watch it below.

    Just simply Epic!!!!!!

    All the multiplayer footage they’ve shown and we get 30 secs of single player xD

      Kinda like it that way. Sometimes trailers can ruin so much of a game.

      • Ragiacrus

        have to agree, some game trailers (most games have multiple trailers before release) (for e.g. the E3 trailer, then the Pax Trailer, then the TGS trailer etc) show too much of the cinematics and plot and by the time the consumer gets his or her hands on the game the only thing left to do is finish it.

        I like my games like I read books, I want to peel the onion one layer at a time till I reach the core

        Why not as good cinematic back drops at least compared to GoW3?

        I hope that wasn’t the last trailer for the campaign. It reeks of low confidence regarding single player compared to the trailer I posted.

          No, PlayStation Lifestyle said there is more coming from here on out till March 12.

    I know GoW plays like all the rest but I’m such a fan of the series and its anti-hero aspect I can’t help myself but be excited -.-

    Man if they continue the God of War series after 3, i truly hope he washes up on the Norse shores.
    Do what Too Human should of done, from a certain point of view.

      Funny you mention that. If you bought the GoW Saga and watched that feature length interview with all the Game Designers of every GoW, the original, David Jaffe, actually did mention that the concept was intended to go further than the Greek gods.

      He even described how Kratos was at one point supposed to steal Thor’s hammer and beat him to death with it XD

      • paperclichepixel

        I did, but never watched it though, and it’s amazing how they’ve kept the director talent on a constant role, to keep each entry fresh.

        • Kobracon

          You should watch it, its quite entertaining and very informative for a burgeoning game designer.

    Why is he still pale white in the trailer with his wife? He became covered in their ash therefor he should still be tan if this is an actual prequel.

    • Skerj

      Maybe she’s a hallucination.

  • ShinAsura

    I’ve burned out from GoW personally

      It’s like going to a restaurant, eating the most delicious food in the world, going back to that same restaurant another day and saying ‘pass, I know I’ll love it but I’m going to just try something else’. How can you possibly be burnt out? The last game came out in early 2010 and God of War: Ascension has changed A LOT of things since the last game so it’ll feel fresh, hope you still give the game a chance.
