nd here comes the (non-final) box art for "God of War: Ascension." Sony has yet to formally announce a new God of War game for PlayStation 3, but retailers and composers seem to be doing a fine job of making it known.

Based on cover art pulled from Amazon's servers, it seems the upcoming game has ditched the Roman numerals in favor of a succinct subtitle. Of course, the important number is the Greek one -- as in where will Kratos find the ancient gods to up his already extravagant body count? (Update: It looks like the game is a prequel, so there should be some hitherto unknown bodies to skewer.)

We'll let you know as soon as we learn more about God of War: Ascension.




Im always up for more Kratos. though I would like to see him slaughter another cultures gods

I'm sure I'll wind up playing it, but this franchise needs a serious break before it goes stale. Let the developers do something new. They're obviously pretty talented.

I like God of War and all but seriously does it need THREE Prequels? icon-depth.gif

I'd much rather see Kratos versus the Norse gods or something.

Ascension? Is it time for Kratos vs Daniel Jackson?

The only prequel game released so far is Chains of Olympus. Ghost of Sparta and Betrayal both take place between GoW and GoW2.

I think Ascension is set to take place before any of the other games we've seen released so far.


As for whether or not the franchise needs a rest, there've only been three proper home console releases (on two different generation systems) in the series in seven years, plus two handheld games to round that out. Betrayal hardly counts, even though it does fit into the over-arcing story of the franchise. Either way, a 2d mobile phone platformer certainly counts as "something different." Compared to the constant slough of Call of Duty games that are being churned out - which still sell billions of copies - I'll take a new God of War any day.

Thor vs, Kratos ....interesting fight. But since Kratos would be protagonist in that hypothetical game he would squish Thor without effort. Otherwise, my money would be on Thor.

A persistent predator is always alert!awake! focused! and Zzzz.....

Haven't played Betrayal. Just took a look, and seems to be a sidescroller. What systems is it available for? I've only seen Andrioid so far.

Also, is there Voice acting, or is it all text?
My FlickR folder...

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

I've not actually played Betrayal either, but I think you can play it on Android or iPhone. It does look like a fun platformer, though.
