Prequel details Kratos' emotional story of redemption, while introducing competitive multiplayer
Sony Computer Entertainment has released a couple of new videos for God of War: Ascension, developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) Santa Monica Studio and due to be available on March 13th, 2013, exclusively for PS3. The story behind God of War: Ascension tells the journey of Kratos' redemption from his past sins and the rise of his rage to break free from Ares' bond.
The enhanced combat system allows you to sling enemies around as a wrecking ball while maintaining a blade attack at the same time, in the air and the ground. Also, the new world weapon system allows Kratos to steal enemies’ weapons to use against them. And, using the Life Cycle ability, Kratos can control the flow of time on various objects in the environments to solve puzzles and freeze enemies during combat.
