Not happy that it might be a prequel. We already have two PSP ports that are prequels. I want to know what happened to him after part 3.

Based on the video and promotional art I'm guessing this takes place between the time he killed his family, and the beginning of GOW Part 1.

They have nowhere to go after the third, so...prequel. When I saw the word Ascension, I did think it would be a sequel, though. I hope we get more details through the day.

If anyone would be kind...I don't understand what the woman says after 30 seconds in the video. What is it?

Another prequel eh? Hm...I was hoping for another game set after GOWIII, but I'm no less excited. I'm sure it'll just as good as all the rest.

HUGE spoilers!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Kratos gets butthurt at a god for something that's his own fault. Kratos then places his trust in another god who eventually screws him over, and Kratos is somehow shocked. Also, he loses his powers and at some point has to fight his way out of Hades for like...what? The fifth time?

yeah sounds typical not to excited about this one. Although i am curious to see how Kratos will fight in this one since he does not yet have Blades of Chaos or whatever he has during that time. We need a new God of War trilogy.

This seems like filler. More likely just to put out something on the PS3 and not start a brand new tale towards the end of this system's life cycle. It;ll probably be more of the same and not wow us too much. Im glad its not a GoW IV though. If and when they plan on moving the series forward, Id hope they leave Kratos behind and focus on a new protagonist

There's no way this is going to be just a prequel, mark my words. It'll bounce back and forth between prequel and sequel I bet.

"Will vengeance bring redemption"? what would that have to do with a prequel? If the stories about redemption post-vengeance then surely it will have to incorporate the bit of the story where, y'know, Kratos actually got that vengeance.

I hoped for a sequel to God of War III because it had a pretty open end. Another prequel feels a bit meh to me

They don't like to be straightforward whenever they do another sequel after the trilogy, when it comes to movies and video games. It either has to be some kind of loose prequel, or a sequel that's more of a "reboot."

Personally, I think this could still be fun! We know VERY little about Kratos' experience in the Spartain Army and his servitude to Ares prior to him getting tricked into killing his family and becoming the Ghost of Sparta, so this should shed some light on what exatly it was Ares was having him do at that time!

While it isn't the sequel I had hope for, I'm interested in this. And I can't say no to more Kratos. Looking forward to it.

Well, it looks like they are starting to milk this thing. Why are we getting a prequel?! I feel like we know everything about Kratos and his story before he was a god. I don't care about that, I want to know what the hell happens to him after the third game.

So now we are getting a 'human' Kratos? Sounds no fun to me.

Well, at least I hope there's more to his personality in this game than rage. If it's a prequel, then it is a good opportunity to explore that.
Maybe it'll be set before the murder of his family, since the trailer talks about a time when he wasn't known as the Ghost of Sparta.

Also, I got a feeling that we'll not be seeing his blades. Perhaps they want to try something new.

After 5 games, its time to give Kratos a rest. I would rather Santa Monica work on a new IP or damn it make a Heavenly Sword sequel. I said this earlier but Ascension feels like filler until PS4

Yeah I kinda feel the same way. Kratos's story has been told and unless they come up with a new and exciting story I don't see the point milking the franchise anymore. That being said, I most likely will still play it as I love this series.

Well, the rumor going around is that Stig didn't work on Ascension and is working on something else. I think they (SSM) doubled their staff and put a "B" Team on this one. Sort of what ND did with TLoU and U3. This is just rumor mind you, but it would be cool if true. We should find out more on the game on the 30th.

They are going to do a Q&A on the Blog and their FB page on the 30th.

Quote:
Hi everyone! I’m Todd Papy, the game director of the recently announced God of War: Ascension. As most of you were recently made aware, God of War: Ascension will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 3. For those of you who haven’t had a chance to check out what the team at Sony Santa Monica Studios has been working on, I’m excited to present you with our very first trailer. Watch it and let us know what you think in the comments!

I’m sure your mouth is watering for more, but unfortunately I have to leave you with that for now. Be sure to tune in to PlayStation.Blog and God of War: Ascension on Facebook on Monday, April 30th at 8am Pacific Time for a live streaming event that will give you a glimpse of what’s in store for God of War: Ascension. I’ll also be answering your questions about the game, so follow @PlayStation on Twitter and Tweet us your best questions by 3pm Pacific Time this Friday — be sure to include #godofwarascension in your Tweet so we can find it (we’re expecting a lot of questions!) If we pick your question to ask during the show, we’ll even send you a signed God of War: Ascension poster.
Thanks and see you on April 30th! There is much more to come.
