God of War: Ascension Trailer Leaks
Someone at Amazon done goofed. Sony was planning a big God of War reveal tomorrow, but an employee of the gargantuan online retailer accidentally posted the game‘s box art (right) and a teaser trailer (below) earlier tonight. One assumes that he is so fired, unless Sony sent an angry Greek demigod after him, armed with a pair of chain-blades.
As the narration in the trailer makes clear, the game is not a sequel, which explains why it isn’t called God of War 4. Instead, God of War: Ascension depicts Kratos at a time “when something other than rage consumed him, a time when in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. A time when he would no longer be bound in blood.” A prequel then, or at least a game set in between some of the God of War games that already exist. Hopefully Sony will provide more details when they deliver their stolen-thunder news tomorrow.
