God of War: Ascension is the prequel to the best-selling God of War® franchise. Set in the realm of Greek mythology, God of War: Ascension is an epic adventure that takes players back in time to experience the climactic journey of the ex-Spartan warrior Kratos as he seeks freedom and vengeance.
After being tricked into killing his wife and child by Ares and breaking his blood oath by swearing vengeance against him, Kratos is sentenced to spend eternity in a titan-sized prison for the living damned.
Armed with his trusty Blades of Chaos, Kratos must take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest for freedom and redemption. For the first time ever in a God of War game, players can compete in online multiplayer battles that combine the brutal combat style that fans know and love with unique objective-based game modes designed for up to 8 players.
Create and customize your very own warrior avatar, and pledge allegiance to one of four gods to earn and unlock a variety of weapons, armour, special attacks and more in the quest to become a champion of the gods. God of War: Ascension will be released in Australia on 14th March 2013, only on PlayStation 3.
