God Of War Ascension Prequel, Sequel, or Modern?

GamerFitNation's BlackBible writes about the new God of War Ascension. He asks, where does this Ascension take us as far as story? He also gives his thoughts and concerns for the title as well as remains you about the concept of a Modern God Of War title. This article does content some spoilers in the series and should be read at your own risk. (Culture, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, God of War: Ascension, PS3)

Prequel.
BLACKBIBLE  +   814d ago
Yeah, when I got near the end of writing this someone told me it was confirmed. So I slightly changed the directions of the article to keep to it's point.

There is a question that remains for me which is, whatever happen to the Modern GOW Title?

For all we know the game could take place in the past and end up in the future.

IT DOESN'T MATTER! -InTheRockVoice-

It's a New God of War game, can't complain @all

I don't care, really. All I want is a new god of war for my PS3 + God of War 4 in development for PS4 (maybe Read at Down can make some spin off for the Vita).

Also, I want Santa Monica to develop a new IP, a new powerful character like Kratos :)

A prequel can be a sequel as long as it ties up loose ends in earlier games like MGS3 and the show Star Trek Enterprise did.

I thought it's obvious?
smashcrashbash  +   814d ago
Wouldn't that be kind of weird for Kratos to be in the future? Would be completely out of place?
BLACKBIBLE  +   814d ago
No, If you read my article you'll see I've included the secret video that suggested just that. There's a video that suggest a Modern GOW with a new hero, but the Developers never said anything more on the idea. It's an official video that's found in GOW1

Oh, okay. I had no idea. I suppose done right it would be an interesting idea. But what would it be? A modern person thrown back to ancient times? A modern person fighting monsters in our time? Or a modern person fighting modern Gods and monsters? That last one could be cool. Imagine a giant machine Titan or a God of industry or monsters armed with modern weapons. A laser mounted Cerberus would be awesome.

Kratos with guns brah! XP

But one of the unlockables cutscenes of the First GOW could be awesome as a game

One of the developers stated on twitter we have seen nothing yet

Think you tagged the wrong game mate. lol

Ontopic: If it were a sequel/modern it'd likely have a 4 at the end so i'm leaning towards prequel.

It's been confirmed its a prequel.
Cosmo811  +   814d ago
It's clearly prequel. it takes place as a young(er) Kratos, therefore it has to have taken place before the first game, making it a prequel.
ziggurcat  +   814d ago
i am so excited to see what this is going to look like.

@Blackbible. Apologies if English is not your native tongue but your writing is an absolute mess, if you're still in school I recommend you start working a lot harder. Your grasp on the GOW story leaves a lot to be desired too.
JetP0619  +   814d ago
it's not the distant future, but im betting that it comes after God of War 3, Too many hints. I mean Athena was in the trailer how she's a being that is far superior than a God already, plus the fact that Kratos killed himself with Olympus Sword at the end of God of War 3 and the Word " Ascension" itself hints that it is a sequel to God of War 3 that would probably have elements of Kratos' past, like a more Deeper insight on how he really was even before the first God of war

It's already confirmed to be a prequel. Even the artworks say "Before he was a god, he was a man." for Christ's sake, is there the slightest possibility that it could be a posterior story after seeing that?
JetP0619  +   813d ago
Why you sounding like a bitch for? Dont doubt even the slightest possibility, it says that it will take you from right where it all began but it didnt say that the whole story will be about that. God of war 1 and the other spinoffs on PSP have showed alot of Kratos' past already, but there's much more to be revealed, but that being said it wasnt confirmed that the "WHOLE STORY" would be about his past. Learn to understand and try to dig deeper before dismissing anything and for Christ's sake stop being ignorant even the word slightest could bring wonders.

Shouldn't this be in the GOD of War sections?
It's under GEARS of War.
