“There’s still a humanity in him.”
Fans- and otherwise- of God of War have often said that Kratos, while being a pretty enjoyable character, is too one dimensional with his constant grimace and perpetual fury.
However, Sony Santa Monica says that he will be much more in the upcoming God of War: Ascension, that he will be humane.
“Since it is a prequel and he’s still trying to figure out the horrible deed he did of killing his wife there’s still a humanity in him obviously,” combat designer Jason de Heras told Shogun Gamer. “o a lot of the story and the events in the game are going to be tailor made to show that. He is going to get angry and raged out, but that’s only going to be against the enemies that are trying to kill him and not against civilians.
“You can see in the demo that he actually shoves a guy away so he’s not just about wanton killing; he has a soul in this game. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t get angry since we actually have a full Rage Mode system in this game but that’s only against the monsters that want to kill him.”
Well, it’d sure be a nice change of pace.
God of War: Ascension releases for the PS3 this March. Stay tuned for more info.
