Video: The Monsters of God of War: Ascension for PS3 - Megaera

50°
95w ago - Sony Community Strategist at Aaron Kaufman Santa Monica Studio has posted up a video today showcasing the monsters of God of War: Ascension for PS3 which spotlights Megaera below.

To quote: From a titan-sized showdown with Ares to battling Zeus at Gaia's heart, the antagonists of God of War have provided some of the most memorable encounters in gaming history. God of War: Ascension promises to continue with this tradition by introducing a challenge that will push Kratos to his physical, mental, and spiritual limits to say the least.

In Ascension, Kratos is sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, and will battle insanity at the hands of the Furies - perhaps the most terrifying spectres of the ancient world.

The six-legged Fury Megaera is the first of three to be revealed in our latest Monsters of Ascension entry, with Lead Concept Artist [Register or Login to view links] - the mastermind behind their creation.

Since Ascension is set before the events of the first God of War, what specific role does Megaera (of the Furies) play in Kratos' journey from mortal to God?

Izzy: Megaera is the first of three deadly sisters that Kratos must push past to free himself from an oath he has come to greatly regret....
 

Video: God of War: Ascension PS3 Panel Highlights from PAX 2012

99w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein is here with some video footage showcasing the God of War: Ascension PS3 panel highlights from PAX 2012 below.

To quote: This past weekend at PAX, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel with some of the top minds working on God of War: Ascension.

While getting inside the heads of the creators of Kratos' next adventure was a treat, we did a lot more than just talk.

The team brought early sketches of Kratos (dreadlocks!) and the first playable video of the original God of War, before the Blades of Chaos were irrevocably bound to his forearms. We also revealed Ascension's big bads, the Furies, with a close look at Mageara, the "enforcer" of the mythical tio.

While we streamed the panel live, courtesy of [Register or Login to view links], you're forgiven if you missed it last Friday evening. But the excuses are gone now - we've cut down the hour-long panel into an 11-minute highlight reel. Take a look:





Your panelists, from left to right:

• Mark Simon - Lead Designer on God of War: Ascension
• Patrick Murphy - Principal Character Artist for God of War: Ascension
• Marianne Krawczyk - award-winning...

The Monsters of God of War: Ascension PS3 - The Satyr Captain

200°
101w ago - Following up on their previous update, Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studio has detailed another of the Monsters in God of War: Ascension for PS3 today, namely the Satyr Captain!

To quote: As we continue the journey to March 12, 2013, we want to further explore all aspects of the God of War universe, giving you deeper insight into the creation, lore, design, and gameplay of God of War: Ascension. Welcome to our third Monsters of Ascension feature.

The Satyr Captain in God of War: Ascension continues the evolution of the "Satyr," an enemy that has featured in every God of War game from the beginning.

This time, however, these grunts are getting a "pack master" in the form of the vicious Satyr Captain. In today's post, our famed concept artist [Register or Login to view links] continues his dissection of the Monsters of Ascension. Let's roll!

The God of War Satyrs are traditionally pretty formidable alone and even more so in groups. Now with the addition of the Goat Captain, they add rank and structure to their arsenal. Those are some pretty stacked odds that Kratos is up against. What sparked the idea to give them a...
