God of War: Ascension “From Ashes” Live Action Trailer

PS Blog: If you’re an ardent PlayStation fan, you’ve no doubt seen the teasers. Today, I’m extremely excited to share the final, full-length version of our “From Ashes” live action trailer for God of War: Ascension, featuring a special arrangement of Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On.” This is just about the biggest production we’ve ever undertaken for a God of War commercial or trailer — or for any PS3 game for that matter. We are very proud of how it turned out, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it. (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

EPIC

Now that sample trailer makes a lot more sense, this is pretty long and a Superbowl ad. They really did go all out.

Who wouldn't wanna know Kratos' back story after seeing that? Million sold: confirmed

Really sets the mood for the single-player.

Can't wait! :D

Wow, I really didn't expect this trailer to be this good after the mess Sony made with the Xperia Play ad. I am super impressed.
hulk_bash1987  +   885d ago
That....was....(mind blown).

Sony can do no wrong with this franchise. March cant come any sooner.
Outsider-G  +   885d ago
Awesome trailer, very well-made.
kneon  +   885d ago
Yup, Since Sony owns actual movie studios, unlike most other game companies, they have the resources to go all out on trailers.

Awesome trailer for an awesome franchise! I'll never get sick of God of War games.

I dont like it at first but rewatched 2 times and I agree its great
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   884d ago
Haha same here I was like huh Kratos smiling? sad music? no rage? what is this? but now I think it's one of the best videogame live trailers I've ever seen, it's pretty emotional and I am so psyched for the next God Of War.
Krypto  +   885d ago
Lost count of how many times I've watched the trailer...it's just so $#!$&ing EPIC!!
PixlSheX  +   885d ago
Best part was ellie goulding. Of course this trailer was awesome too. But i just didn't expect ellie goulding vocals to be there.
StrongMan  +   885d ago
BEST LIVE ACTION TRAILER EVER!!!!!
The_Infected  +   884d ago
I have to agree with you on that one! It was epic and sad.
Mounce  +   884d ago
Epic doesn't give it justice...

IT WAS FUCKING AWESOMELY EPIC
specialguest  +   884d ago
I found this trailer moving and awesome, because it showed a hint of the human side of Kratos. This was what I've always wanted the franchise show more of because we're all very familiar with his rage-filled and vengeful side already.

Now I understand Kratos...now I understand.

On a side note, those boys surrounding him picked the wrong time to kill him.
akaakaaka  +   884d ago
I have already pre-ordered and paid my copy and this trailer just made me proud of it! lol

GOW is always a amazing experience..

Is it just me or has Sony all of a sudden shifted to beast mode?

This is quite epic.
thornh  +   885d ago
Yes. Being a father it really hits home. Never mess with the family.
first1NFANTRY  +   885d ago
True, you can sense the level of emotion in his face. All hell was about to break loose.

Simply cannot stress how awesome the God Of War franchise is.
Liefx  +   884d ago
I love how there are almost no disagrees in this entire thread.
TOGC  +   885d ago
The song is 'Holding on' by Ellie Goulding.
ginsunuva  +   884d ago
I think it's Hanging on, but I may be wrong.
TOGC  +   884d ago
Yeah it is, my bad xD
AznGaara  +   884d ago
Good song indeed. Weird, it was used in a Victoria's Secret commercial and now this. Because of that it does mess with how I view this trailer lol.
TheFallenAngel  +   885d ago
Looks amazing! I can't wait wait!
SlyFamous02  +   885d ago
Any GOW fan who says they are not hyped for this game after that trailer is a liar. This is going to be EPIC, will it "ascend" above GOW3? only time will tell, all I know is that this is a day one buy for me. In its old age, the PS3 steps it up another notch.
Fishy Fingers  +   885d ago
Not a big fan of live action trailers, especially for games that look as good as GOW. But good none the less.
Crystallis  +   885d ago
Agreed, but this one is just Epic. Sony is freakin on Fire!.
cleft5  +   885d ago
They really capture Kratos's rage well. So simple, yet perfectly executed.
DaPrintz  +   885d ago
Absolutely. Long time fan here. I've never seen a GoW trailer that captured the reason for his demeanor so perfectly. The king has returned.
Silly gameAr  +   885d ago
Trailer kind of gave me chills.

if this gives you chill, watched the first 30 min game play of Ascension, you will pick you jaw off the floor...

AhmadSA  +   885d ago
Shit. That was intense. I hope I get to rip someone's head off.
Fishy Fingers  +   885d ago
Just one? Come on man, this is GOW, set your sights higher.
kneon  +   885d ago
This is Kratos we're talking about hear, he rips off a dozen heads before breakfast just as a warm up :)
A2X_  +   885d ago
I wish this was a real movie trailer.

Godammit I can't wait. Ascension + Last of us demo. Can't go wrong.

Yesterday I was so disapointed by the GTA V delay, but look at all the awesome games coming out : SLY 4, Bioschock, Ascension, Last of us, Beyond, Tomb raider and more. Surely enough to keep us busy!

I think if Sony can pull a trailer off like this then a movie cant be that far fetched of an idea. I mean this looks movie quality already.
kneon  +   885d ago
The GOW movie has been talked about for years but as far as I know it's dead in the water.

But I would go see it, it certainly couldn't be worse than other recent attempts at Greek mythology based movies.

BlaqMagiq24  +   885d ago
Ares messed with Kratos' fam. And thus the downfall of the gods began.

Great trailer BTW. Captures the essence of Ascension.
JohnApocalypse  +   885d ago
This trailer is the opposite of GOW3
r21  +   885d ago
Wow, i never expected to be amazed by the full trailer but wow. It tugged my heart strings when Kratos's daughter disintegrates into ashes :'C

dorron  +   885d ago
Now this is when this game starts to get me hyped. STORY MODE!!! The trailer was so touching. Never thought seeing Kratos crying would be so...well, it really impressed me.
IRetrouk  +   885d ago
Damn such an amazing trailer, almost felt his pain when the daughter went all ashy, game is gonna be a classic
kingmushroom  +   885d ago
kratos sheds a tear , epic trailer.
leahcim  +   885d ago
THIS is the way you give sense to a trailer!

I Am yelling it to you DEEP SILVER
Zechs34  +   885d ago
Few times have I been affected down to the core from anything video game related, but this trailer...

Wow. Really tugged on my heart strings. Very emotional and despairing.

Sony is in full force mode.

Btw, anyone who hasn't done so, you should head over to any gaming website and definitely check out the 30 minute gameplay demo.

EPIC.
El_Colombiano  +   885d ago
I'm impressed with how well Sony actually got Kratos to look. In all other live action videos, he looks so fake and shaped wrong
yewles1  +   885d ago
Okay, a grown man just cried. T_T

DAMMIT KRATOS!!!! HOW COULD YOU!?!?!?!?
massvmunkee  +   885d ago
not gonna lie...this made me tear up badly. too me, the trailer greatly demonstrated why Kratos is the way he is :(
also teared up cuz of the fact WE GET MORE GOD OF WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
strigoi814  +   885d ago

smashcrashbash  +   885d ago
I especially like the part in the end when whoever those people were attacked him from all sides in his moment of grief. i feel sorry for whoever they are because I am certain Kratos would be very angry at that moment.
FunAndGun  +   884d ago
I am pretty sure that was his army. Kratos was the youngest captain of Sparta's army before he became the God of War.

He may very well kill them all out of rage however because his leadership, lust for power, and this army all lead up to the death of his family.
Ezz2013  +   884d ago
well either way they are F*****
kingmushroom  +   885d ago
hopefully sandy hook families don't see this trailer or els its gonna get some hate
Bumpmapping  +   884d ago
Epic god damn Sony can't take this,TLOU,Sly 4,Beyond 2 souls PS4 think my head is gonna explode!
