So, it’s official. The next God Of War won’t be a numerical sequel, but an origin story. “Discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom,” says Sony’s press release.
There’s little else to know at this stage, but the impression given is that this game may precede even the details offered in the original game’s intro. Whether God Of War: Ascension covers the adventures of a human Kratos, or is simply a reboot for the character taking in some of the action of the first PS2 game remains to be seen.
Todd Pappy, the game’s director at Sony Santa Monica Studios, has promised more information on April 30th for this PlayStation 3 exclusive.
