Video: God of War: Ascension on PlayStation 3 in The Mocap Studio

100°
89w ago - Sony Producer Ariel Lawrence has posted up a video today spotlighting God of War: Ascension on PlayStation 3 in the Mocap Studio below.

To quote: Hello, fellow Spartans! My name is Ariel Lawrence, and I'm a Producer on God of War: Ascension.

No one can argue that Kratos is angry. With everything that's happened to him over the years, he has every right to be. He's killed - either accidentally or intentionally - everyone he's ever cared about.

He's been lied to, chained up, run through, tortured, and cast into the depths of Hades several times. If I was him, I'd be angry too. Our aim in this installment of Kratos' story is to try and show a bit more of his humanity. To do this, we incorporated voice over motion capture, or "vo-mocap", into our cinematic pipeline.

The really exciting part of "vo-mocap" is that it gives our voice actors an opportunity to work together in a scene. Delivery, timing, and efforts all come more naturally because the actors are able to play off of each other. They see how far apart they are from each other physically.

They can watch emotions play out on each other's faces and respond appropriately. They can whisper. The technology we have now is awesome. On the first God of War, we might have been able to show...

89w ago - Sony Senior Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has posted up a video today announcing that God of War: Ascension brings Kratos and his Spartan Army to life.

Below are the details, to quote: By now, I'm sure you've caught the God of War: Ascension "From Ashes" live action trailer we debuted last Friday, and if you haven't, you need to go [Register or Login to view links] right now!

You may have even caught the 60-second version air during the online live stream of the Super Bowl this past Sunday.

This trailer has been a labor of love for all of us here, and based on the comments and feedback on YouTube and elsewhere, all of the effort was well worth it. I'm very excited to share with you a couple of behind-the-scenes videos that show a glimpse of what went into bringing the world of Kratos to life.

Kratos is not an easy man to replicate in the flesh. This first video shows how we transformed our talented, and extremely buff, actor Brandon White, into the legendary Spartan General. A lot of work went into making sure his tattoo, armor, costume and ash make-up looked just right.

Add this to an amazing performance, and the Ghost of Sparta is no longer just an angry, rage filled monster, but a full embodiment of the humanity of...

90w ago - Sony Senior Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has shared a God of War: Ascension live-action PS3 trailer dubbed From Ashes today which explores Kratos' origins below.

To quote: If you're an ardent PlayStation fan, you've no doubt seen [Register or Login to view links].

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.

God of War: Ascension, however, is set before the first God of War game. Through the course of the story, we get...
