The industry’s worst kept secret is officially out. Following a leak by Amazon, Sony have finally decided to unveil the next entry in the God of War franchise. Titled God of War: Ascension, the game is set to be a prequel staring series icon Kratos in a time before he was made a rage-filled god.
Judging from the trailer, box art and teaser images that have been released, it’s clear that Sony Santa Monica are trying to humanise Kratos after God of War 3 saw him reach almost comical levels of fury and wrath. It’ll be interesting to see how they choose to portray the softer side of their typically brutish protagonist.
The game will be directed by Todd Pappy, who follows in the footsteps of Stig Asmussen, Cory Barlog and David Jaffe.
