57w ago - Today it appears Amazon.com jumped the gun with Sony's suspected God of War: Ascension reveal by publishing the game's product page a day early alongside the PS3 box art and a teaser trailer video below!
To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "God of War: Ascension for PlayStation 3 seems to be a prequel to the original trilogy, before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta.
Not much else is known about the story, however. The listing notes, "Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far."
The product page, which is active at the time of this publishing, also contains a short CG teaser trailer. The listing indicates the game is out sometime in 2013, but no official release date has been revealed."
Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. and to APO/FPO addresses. For APO/FPO shipments, please check with the manufacturer regarding warranty and support issues.
Media: Video Game
Release Date: December 31, 2013

what i'm excited about is if kratos have a new move, combo, since the director on GOW3 was inspired and challenge by Asura's Wrath. i remember him saying that there are lots of things that could possibly done on kratos. i bet his saying about kratos combos, boss battles, and moves.
NICE.. just wonder, though, didn't he already kill Ares in like the first one? Wasn't Ares responsible for tricking him into the storyline? Didn't he already defeat Zeus? Really need to see a good arc here.
"Kratos is told at the end of Zeus' last breath, that the only way to undo everything and bring his family back is to pour over their graves the purest tears of his emotions. Realizing he can't cry, Kratos once again goes bananas on yet another group of individuals. Join the fun!" Ha ha, either way a first-day purchase for me.
