God of War: Ascension | Review

Posted on April 2, 2013 by Jason Fayta

Kratos, the ever affable hero hell-bent on murdering every creature and god from Greek mythology, returns to ascend to new levels of brutality in God of War: Ascension, the second God of War installment on the PlayStation 3, after the 2010 release of God of War III. Serving as a prequel for the entire series, the story in God of War: Ascension predates the events found in the PSP title, God of War: Chains of Olympus.

A brief prologue introduces the Primordials, beings who antecede both the Titans and Mount Olympus; they created the Earth by throwing down, Supreme Being style. The war amongst them also spawned the Furies, guardians who capture and torture those they deem guilty–a lot in life they seemingly much enjoy.Read More

God of War Ascension Beta Releases Fury On PSN This Jan

Posted on December 12, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

If you’re a Playstation Plus member it is not just free games that you will get to enjoy early next year. The multiplayer beta version of God of War Ascension will hit the PlayStation store next month but those of you who completed the Rise of the Warrior social game earlier in the year will be able to jump in on the gore filled madness on December 16th.

God of War Ascension was announced at this year’s E3 expo and brings multiplayer to the series for the first time in its five game history. Developed by series creators Sony’s Santa Monica Studios this entry shakes things up a bit by featuring a single player story that has a revised weapon system and a “prompt-less combat” which does away with the traditional quick time events in favor of a more button mashy configuration.

The beta will feature two modes – Team Favor of the Gods and Free for All Favor of the Gods. You earn points via kills, opening chests or holding certain objectives. The full game will be available on March 12th 2013 in North America.
