Hello, PlayStation Blog readers and God of War fans.
Everyone knows Kratos has anger management issues; he will stop at nothing to get revenge on Ares and all of the gods that have betrayed him. In God of War 1-3 ** SPOILER ALERT ** we got to experience Kratos’ quest for vengeance as he took down Ares and literally climbed his way to the top of Olympus to defeat Zeus himself.
God of War: Ascension, however, is set before the first God of War game. Through the course of the story, we get to see a more human side of Kratos as he deals with the pain and suffering of having just lost everything he has ever loved.
We worked closely with Imaginary Forces, the creative minds behind some of the gorgeous cut scenes in Ascension and some of the past God of War games, and Santa Monica Studio to bring Kratos and his family to life, paying careful attention to each painstaking detail.
I’m extremely excited to share with you the full length version of our “From Ashes” live action trailer featuring a special arrangement of Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On”.
This is just about the biggest production we’ve ever undertaken for a God of War commercial or trailer, or for any PS3 game for that matter. We are very proud of how it turned out, and hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.
