God Of War Ascension details

Sony have announced that the latest in the God of War series. As we know, not only is Ascension a prequel to the main trilogy but will have a multiplayer mode. Up to eight players can compete on online Greek gods – Zeus, Ares, Poseidon or Hades and earn their approval to unlock new customisation options.

About the main story Sony had this to say: “Months after being tricked into killing his wife and child, a younger Kratos is sentenced to a life of madness with the Furies, caged in a Titan sized prison for the living damned. Fighting insanity, his will is tested to the limit as he seeks to break his bond and gain the clarity to seek revenge on Ares for his part in the death of his family. Armed with double-chained blades, Kratos must take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest for redemption.”

God of War Ascension promises to be a formidable entry into the series so far with refinements to the combat system, a multiplayer mode and from our investigations, a single player mode that is just shy of the lengths of previous games.

Kratos and God of War Ascension will be smashing the PlayStation 3 later in the year.
