While some of us have been enjoying the multiplayer beta for Sony’s upcoming third person action franchise God of War: Ascension, we take time to acknowledge what’s brought us here after many years with a new single player trailer. Expect to see a demo releasing sometime in February.
Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise. 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.
Before He Was A God, He Was A Man.
The Beta is currently available for PlayStation Plus subscribers which features two maps; Desert of Lost Souls (8-player Team Favor of the Gods and Capture the Flag) and Forum of Hercules (4-player Favor of the Gods). Those of you who’ve participated in the beta will receive Champion’s Blade and Armor this March when the game hits retail.
