E3 2012: God of War: Ascension gameplay footage is jaw-dropping; Coming out March 2013
Sony showed off plenty of gameplay footage for their upcoming game, God of War: Ascension. The video showed Kratos in a city on the edge of the sea.
The demo showed off some typical, brutal GoW combat, new moves and finishers, new enemy types (including a monster with an elephant’s head), and of course, a lot of blood and brutality, something we’ve all come to associate God of War with.
Kratos also has some pretty useful magical moves in his arsenal now, like stomping his blades on the ground and sending out a wave of energy to knock enemies off. He also slowed down time to restore some fallen structures.
The platforming in GoW: Ascension looks very smooth, and Kratos is apparently a lot more nimble now (strange, because this is a prequel). There was also a boss battle with a Kraken.
By the looks of it, Kratos can also pick up fallen weapons off the ground randomly and use the temporarily. The game certainly looks very good. Watch the full demo above.
Sony confirmed that God of War: Ascension will be out on the PS3 on March 12, 2013.
Stay tuned for more updates.
