Santa Monica’s most ambitious God of War takes it back to where it all began.
The God of War franchise is an action/hack ‘n’ slash that is set in the world of Greek mythology. You play as Kratos, an ex-Spartan warrior who plans to take on the gods for their betrayal. GoW:A is a prequel set before any of the events from the previous six games and concentrates on his path from mortal to God. Ascension’s story will be more emotional than previous God of War’s and will delve into Kratos’ tormented past and psyche that has been ‘never seen’ before. Judging from the God of War: Ascension Super Bowl commercial, the main focus will show that Kratos was tricked by Ares into slaughtering his own family and the repercussions that follow.
