It seems Sony has been having quite the time teasing gamers this week as they teased a possible God of War announcement to be revealed today and something PlayStation related to be revealed on February 20th. We’re nowhere near February 20th, but today, we do get to find out what exactly Sony had planned for February 1st, or “Game Day” as they called it.
The big reveal is a new God of War: Ascension live-action trailer called “From Ashes.” The trailer literally gave me chills when I first watched it as any God of War fan knows what exactly happens for Kratos to earn the ashes that cover his entire body.
In God of War: Ascension, we’ll take a look at Kratos before his memorable journey through God of War 1-3 when he was just a simple soldier. Sony teases that Ascension players will experience the pain and loss Kratos experienced and today’s live-action trailer certainly sets the stage for the experience.
