Kratos returns…

Kratos_ChainedKratos returns in Sony’s Prequel to the God of War series:  “God of War-Ascension”.

In this iteration “Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, 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… Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.”

In anticipation of the March 12 release date, Sony has posted out a demo on the PlayStation Network. aptly titled “Prison of the Damned”.  Weighing in at a hefty 3.7 GB, the demo also comes with several behind the scenes videos, including the “From Ashes” Superbowl commercial, the Online Multiplayer preview, and a quick intro from the creative director behind the game.

The visuals and gameplay are fantastic. The folks at Santa Montica pushed the PlayStation to its limits, yet again.

I am definitely looking forward to the March 12th release.
Cue the drums and chanting!!
