First leaked by Amazon late last night, Sony has now officially announced God of War: Ascension for the PS3. The retail giant may have spoiled their surprise, but the publisher still had a bit to say about Kratos next adventure. Since he “died” at the end of God of War III, Ascension is being developed as a prequel to Kratos story, and it’s once again being developed by Sony Santa Monica. The Amazon product page also points towards a 2013 release. Finally, Sony released the awesome teaser trailer above.
“Tease” appears to be the operative word as Sony also confirmed that we won’t learn anything else about the game until Monday, April 30 at 11 AM (Eastern Time). If you’re not stuck at work or in class at that time, you’ll want to point your browser at the PlayStation Facebook page to watch a live streaming event with the game’s director, Todd Papy.
He’ll be answering your questions during the stream and you can begin bombarding him now on Twitter by tweeting @PlayStation. And be sure to tag it with the hashtag #godofwarascension.
