'So who pissed him off this time? Ares! Might’ve known. It seems Kratos wishes to break his blood oath with the God of War Ares. His reluctance to servitude causes the God of the Underworld, Hades to set The Furies on him. They seek to imprison Kratos in the Prison of the Damned - a prison re-purposed from the petrified body of the Titan who betrayed Zeus, Aegaeon. Ascension opens with Kratos bound in chains having been tortured for months. Tormented and plagued by visions of his wife and child, he aims to break the oath and seek revenge by first escaping the titanic prison and then to forge a path of havoc and revenge.'
