To quote: God of War fans, it's Game Director Todd Papy again with the latest and greatest on God of War: Ascension.
If you saw the on-stage world premiere of our new epic single-player journey at E3, then you're well aware Kratos will be as bad-ass as ever when Ascension hits stores on March 12, 2013.
