For the second time in the PS3’s lifespan, Kratos
is losing his temper in a fully fledged Triple A title. No, of course I’m not counting the Vita or PS2 collections. The cranky Ghost of Sparta would literally rip me in two for that offence...
returns on March 15th, pushing the PS3 to its brawny limits in Ascension
, a title almost without meaning considering last time, the protagonist murdered the Father of all Deities with his bare hands
. However, this fourth home console title is a prequel (not unlike the Vita’s Ghost of Sparta
) meaning the grief of his family’s slaughter is still fresh in his mind.
Not that this actually layers the character none, but expect to take an unyielding supply of angst out on anything that moves...
The new demo will allegedly give players the chance to try out Kratos
’ new grapple mechanic, experiment with a multitude of enemy weapons, unchain the fiery Rage mode and do to a titanic, screen filling beast what Kratos does best to titanic, screen filing beasts.
I legitimately feel sorry for it.
Furthering the 2013 Hack/Slash
renaissance, God of War: Ascension
tears its way onto PS3 on March 15th. Play the demo tonight, and be sure to wash out your eyeballs afters...
