God of War IV confirmed by Amazon, named Ascension
The new God of War game has been confirmed in a leak by Amazon, and is either a prequel based on the time before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta, or a tale about Kratos trying to rescue his family.
Amazon has jumped the gun and announced the newest game from Sony ahead of the publisher, and like everyone assumed, it's God of War IV. Named God of War Ascension,there's a lot of forced bullshit to speak about "the most ambitious title yet" (I don't doubt it will be true, but it's meaningless unless we know how it will be ambitious), but what is most interesting is the trailer.
I will admit it does make for an cool premise, actually seeing Kratos before he became a beast. But, and this is the big but here, it doesn't sound like this leaves a lot of room for the big action that makes the series special. Kratos was a military commander, where do giant scorpions you punch to death come into that?
Or maybe I'm reading this completely wrong, and its still set after the events of God of War IV. In which case, we're back to nothing being left to kill. Death is dead, and Kratos has jumped through Hades so often, the premise being Kratos pulling an Orpheus is just stretching credibility. What, did Kratos's family get sent to the wrong afterlife by accident, now he's gotta go through Valhalla to find them?
....okay, that actually does sound awesome.

Anubus is egyptian, and while I wish there was a god of war set in Egypt, It doesn't look like that's happening.
Well, it followed the story between Kratos breaking his ties to Ares and the events of the first game.
It is to early to get excite about this game and the trailer is ok but it just dosn't give much of an impact. All there is left to do is just imagine what the game can be about. Personally I would like to see Kratos Fight other Gods I always thought that was it would be interesting for him to fight as other gods of war or just create a new God of war with gods from different myths.
1 prequel (Chains of Olympus). Ghost of Sparta is set between GOW 1 and 2
Chains of Olympus was a prequel
so lets see the ending to 3 saw (spoiler) Kratos kills Zues and the rest of the gods and the titans and seemingly frees himself from his memories and guilt of his dead family, opens Pandora's box and then (as far as we can tell) kills himself finding peace at last. so where do you go from that?, how do you go from that? what can they do that won't ruin everything? I don't have to much hope for the answer.
Kingdom Hearts did it, Why the Fuck not?
seeing as how chains of olympus and ghost of sparta were bridging gaps in the story and were not prequels this game should be good
just waiting for the game play footage to be shown way to early to get super excited for a game until I see some game play
Is it just me or did Kratos look a bit like Sagat at the end of that trailer?
Who the hell is left for Kratos to kill now?
Doesn't God of War already have 2 prequels? Do they think that 3 prequels is a good idea? Or is this not a prequel? This trailer is too damn confusing.
Yay more god of war! I think they should make a new series of the game, where a new dude kills all the Egyptian gods. I just wanna pouch ra
Can't wait. :D
Devil may cry 3 was a prequel too I think. They need to fix this whole jumping back and forth in games.
If my suspicions are correct, I think Santa Monica studios is trying to show us another side of Kratos we have not seen before. You know, that there is more to this animal then just rage so to speak. If that is the case, then I'm all for it.
"....okay, that actually does sound awesome." No, it doesn't, it sounds so stupid that it may become reality in the near future. But, if the idea was to make a mortal challange Tyr, then I whould get a boner. Norse Gods > Greek Gods > African Gods > Egyptyan Gods
