It would seem that retail giant Amazon spoiled Sony’s fun, announcing a new God of War before they had a chance to announce it publicly. While Amazon worked quickly to remove the listing, gamers across the globe were quick to grab the teaser trailer and box art.
“God of War: Ascension brings back Kratos for a new adventure. It’s not called God of War 4 because it’s not a sequel. Instead, it takes place much earlier in the series’ timeline.
“Many know the legend of Kratos, the mortal turned god who brought down the very walls of Olympus. But there was a time before Kratos became the monster known as the Ghost of Sparta,” says the voiceover in the trailer. “A time when something other than rage consumed him, a time when in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. A time when he would no longer be bound in blood.”
After God of War 3’s ending, it would have been anyone’s guess that there would be a new chapter in the series. Either way, Playstation owners have another reason to celebrate!
