Amazon Lets Loose Our First Glimpse at God of War: Ascension
Sony’s big reveal that they’ve been teasing for a week now be damned says Amazon. The online retailer has (likely accidentally) leaked the fourth God of War game and has revealed the beast to be a prequel to Kratos’ saga. God of War: Ascension depicts Kratos as a mere man, before he ever became the Ghost of Sparta in “a time where something other than rage consumed him.”
You can check out Amazon’s listing for the game, it being our only scraps to feed off of since Sony’s official announcement was beaten to the punch. We’ll be sure to hear more tomorrow given that all the teasers point to the 19th. Until then, set your eyes to stunned and scope out the new trailer.
I’m extremely disappointed that after viciously skewering all of Greek mythology, we’re given a prequel instead of a sequel that could’ve had Kratos maiming Norse mythology or even Biblical mythology (Kratos v. Goliath, man; it writes itself). Still, a prequel gives us insights into the all heads Kratos cracked open before…all the rest of the heads Kratos cracked open.
