It was around this time last year that the existence of a brand new God of War game had been confirmed. That game turned out to be God of War: Ascension, a prequel that will explore the origins of Kratos – it pre-dates all previously released God of War games chronologically.
God of War: Ascension was developed by SCE Santa Monica and will be published by Sony exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on March 12th, 2013. Back-to-back-to-back releases in Europe, Australia, and the United Kingdom will follow. You can check out the brand new trailer below.
