God of War: Ascension is confirmed to be the next instalment of the God of War series, and for folks who cannot have enough of Kratos and his giant killing exploits (coupled with your gaming reflexes, of course), the above leaked trailer should be enough to placate your appetite for the game – at least for the moment. Also known as God of War IV in certain circles, God of War: Ascension does seem to be a prequel rather than continue from where the series takes off. It is always easier to work backwards, as there are far more possibilities to explore within a game’s storyline without being constrained to what has already been done.
There is no gameplay footage featured in the trailer, although a stylized Kratos was caught struggling against what looked like his inner demons – hey, we all have our inner demons to conquer, too. Not only that, you can also see the leaked box art of God of War: Ascension on the right, with the huge disclaimer at the bottom saying, “Art Not Final”, but it sure looks pretty darn close to the finished product. What do you think?
