Kratos teases himself

Kratos teases himself

The teaser of God of War: Ascension released a few days ago is finally available in high quality. Not much to see of course, but enough to make us all impatient to see what the game has in store for us.
Note: Sony has just announced that a single-player demo will be available in late February.

Saw the demo played at a show some time ago, think it looks much better than GOW3, was surprised how good it looked.
The single player demo will be out shortly, we'll know for sure at that time.

Not really, the demo of GoW3 wasent as good looking as the full game, same will apply here.

But GoW Ascension has a "smoother" look compared to GoW3 thats what i noticed, especially one Kratos himself.

Was that not due to that demo being really old? Like 8 months old or something stupid like that?

I believe so, and when the SP demo of Ascension shows up we dont know how old that is.

Can someone outline what part of the story this is telling? Never been into God Of War, even when I was given a free demo at a screening of 300 I just couldn't shake the fact that I enjoyed other action games way more at the time.

The last demo was made for E3 i dont believe they made a demo this time round for a games show so it wont be anywhere near as old.

They haven't really said anything about the story thus far.

Before GOW 1, but after aligning himself with ares and after ares tricked kratos into killing his wife and child (he's still the ghost of sparta)

Looks great. I'm still waiting for them to release GoW where Kratos is a punk teenager and says "fuck you!" every five seconds.

@Sath @Korndog

So did they take a small portion from an already explored aspect of the franchise and cram dynamite down its throat?
Commented on 2013-01-19 21:46:16
Still annoyed that it's a pre-quel, but it looks like it will deliver some great setpieces.

Oh Sony Santa Monica you can fckin' tease guy - this is why I hate trailers like these but at least in has in game content and gameplay so I don't feel too much like a cheap whore :D

Why do you think that?

@deafwing

It's a genuinely innocent question as I really have no idea. It's the spin-offs that are confusing me.

Okay - actually I felt that way when they first time they announced the game but I think they are just milking it for what's it worth.

The question is, do I care to learn about how Kratos became aligned with Ares and the story right after that? A lil' bit.

Potentially. It's a bit confusing.

GOW1 told us how kratos and his spartan army where getting owned by some barbarian army, so he called upon ares to help him win, and in return ares would use kratos to do his bidding. Which is what he did. Even tricked him into killing his family, of which their ashes are bound to his flesh (hence ghost of sparta) what makes it a bit confusing. Is that based on what we've seen, kratos is aligned with ares, hes killed his family (he's white skinned) and is out to kill the god of war...but you already did that in GOW1. So even though aresmust still be around in this game, he can't be the ultimate villain, because you already fought him in the first game.

Unless some of the game takes place before ares even got involved. In which case we might be seeing kratos as a normal spartan, not the ghost of sparta with the chain blades, what we've seen might be later in the game? Basically we might acually play the "flashback" cutscenes that the first games showed us. The fight with the barbarian army, killing your family, getting cursed, the process of having the chain blades bound to your arms etc. could be the transition from spartan, to ghost of sparta...hope thats the case at least.

Just got round to watching the trailer....what a shit trailer...seems Sony have cut it off short as well?
Commented on 2013-01-19 23:37:44
Underwater boss? Meh.

Loved GoW 1 and 2, third part had few good moments, but overall was kinda disappointing compared to old stuff. I still have yet to see something really promising about Ascension...

Thats a shame, Think it was Korndog who said it played like Powerstone which was awesome so was looking forward to trying multi out.

Really looking forward to it. MP seems to be getting lot of push. This is a great old interview about the game.
