It’s official; there’s a new God of War game coming to the PS3 next spring. After months of speculation and teasing from Sony, we now know that Kratos’ journey is not yet finished. Well, it sort-of is, as Ascension is a prequel to the first three God of War console games. According to Sony, God of War: Ascension will let gamers “discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom.” Besides revealing a spring 2013 release window, Sony’s product page for the game makes it clear that Ascension is going to remain a singleplayer-only game. The CG announcement trailer for the game can be found on the game’s product page.
-Nick’s take: Both PSP God of War games covered Kratos’ life before the PS2/PS3 games, so I wonder what new material Ascension will cover. Regardless, I’m just excited about a new God of War game.
