To quote: If you're an ardent PlayStation fan, you've no doubt seen the teasers.

Today, I'm extremely excited to share the final, full-length version of our "From Ashes" live action trailer for God of War: Ascension, featuring a special arrangement of Ellie Goulding's "Hanging On."

This is just about the biggest production we've ever undertaken for a God of War commercial or trailer – or for any PS3 game for that matter. We are very proud of how it turned out, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.





Everyone knows Kratos has anger management issues; he will stop at nothing to get revenge on Ares and all of the gods that have betrayed him. In God of War 1-3, **SPOILER ALERT** we got to experience Kratos' quest for vengeance as he took down Ares, and literally climbed his way to the top of Olympus to defeat Zeus himself.

65w ago - Today Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari has officially announced that the God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta is open to all PSN users.

Below are the details, to quote: You've likely read or seen the many posts over the past month regarding the God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta.

At first it was available only to participants of the "Rise of the Warrior" experience on the God of War Web site (which is now relaunched, new and improved, and ready to dole out even more extras for series fans).

Then it was only accessible to PlayStation Plus members (as if they needed any more exclusive content, what with their free Instant Game Collection and countless discounts).

Now, we're excited to announce that we're opening up the Ascension MP Beta to all PlayStation Network users for a very limited time. Starting now and lasting through the holiday weekend--provided you've got a PlayStation 3 and a valid North American PlayStation Network account- you're in!

Think of it as a sampling- nay, a slice- of the benefits and rewards showered upon PlayStation Plus members month after month. Wish you could have played the Beta for longer than a few days? Wish you could get more first looks...

65w ago - Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studios has made available a new God of War: Ascension PS3 single player campaign demo video this weekend with details below.

To quote: Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and daughter, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved.

Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken. This is where your journey in the story of God of War: Ascension begins...

It has been well over six long, enduring months you've waited since your first look at our Ascension single-player campaign at E3 last year. So, as we get ready to close our multiplayer beta early next week, the time has come to focus on where Ascension and its story will take you this March. Here's your first glimpse:





This trailer is only a quick taste. You didn't think Ascension was only 30 seconds long, right?! We have more single-player details to unravel and showcase as we rage towards launch. Most...
