God of War Ascension : Announcement Trailer

Kratos is coming back to the PS3!

The most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far, God of War: Ascension takes us right back to where it all began. Discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom and vengeance.

Not only am I stoked that it's a God of War game, but it seems like it's going to be a big change from all the other GOW titles. Not that anything was at all wrong with them, but a lot of fans including myself might have been a little disappointed deep down if it ended up feeling similar to all the others instead of its own beast. I love the ambition and hopefully we'll see much more in the coming weeks and of course E3 this summer.

The series can only go on for so long right? Kratos will run out of gods to kill eventually.

Everything I've heard (which really isn't much) is that it's going to be the earliest game chronologically.  

I can see the game going one of two ways:

1.  You're General Kratos and the final boss is the Barbarian Army.

2.  The game starts with the Barbarian Army and we see glimpses of Kratos's service to Ares and the game ends with the walk up to killing his family.

Both of which have humongous potential.

Seems completely unnecessary to me. I love me some Kratos, don't get me wrong. But when the number of prequels equal the number of episodes in the story proper you know Sony Santa Monica are clutching at straws. What happened to the other mythologies out there?

Kratos was a great character for the PS2 era and just managed to be relevant in 2010, they've fleshed out his single-dimension enough that any more backstory would break the illusion. That said, it's nice to hear that furious grunt again.

Im Thinking Prequel, but it could be something else though. Could also be a Sequel to the Third with Kratos trying to bring balance to the world again or something (Not in the sprit of the other games but Hey who knows by this stage)
