New God Of War: Ascension Story Details

New God Of War: Ascension Story Details

When you hear God of War, you immediately think of engrossing single-player gameplay, but when Sony unveiled God of War: Ascension two weeks ago, journalists were shocked to learn only the game’s multiplayer, something entirely new to the franchise, would be shown. But rest assured Sony’s aware of what fans want, so to satisfy your grave they’ve let loose some new single-player details.

“God of War: Ascension is a prequel that will show Kratos’ emotional path of redemption, while detailing the rise of his rage to break free from Ares’ bond,” Sony told IGN.

“Six months after being tricked into killing his wife and child, a younger Kratos is sentenced to a life of madness with the Furies, caged in a titan sized prison for the living damned. Fighting insanity, his will is tested to the limit as he seeks to break his bond and gain the clarity to seek revenge on Ares for his part in the death of his family. Armed with double-chained blades, Kratos must take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest for redemption.”

Perhaps this will allow fans of the franchise to rest easy that Sony hasn’t forgotten about the game’s single-player portion, and I’m sure we’ll learn more at E3.

    remember the leaked trailer i showed you a few months ago?
    that gave me the impression that kratos was stuck somewhere and had to break out, and there was someone egging him on.
    hmmmmmmmmmmm, do i smell brother on brother co-op?
    its been rumoured for so long, i remember just as GOW3 released there were allot of stories of it getting a expansion for exactly that co-op.
    maybe they decided to hold it back for this………
