Kratos’ latest battle for blood was first announced back in April, following the leak of the box art for God of War Ascension. Sony’s Conference at this year’s E3 event has now shed new light on on the inevitable trail of destruction, with our first look at the single player gameplay, news on the launch date, and even a preorder special.
Ascension brings new gameplay mechanics into the fold with making use of the environment around him to amp up the chaos. He can make his own platforms, pick up enemy weapons and even manipulate time itself. And if that seems too dull for the man who makes the Hulk look like a calm guy, he can always turn a chained enemy into a weapon.
But really, where’s the fun in describing the chaos of Kratos?
Check out the official gameplay video below as he puts the beat down on a giant uh, elephant… guy?
God of War: Ascension is now set for launch March 12, 2012 on the Playstation 3.
Plus, the preorder bonus of the Mythological Heroes mappack has been announced for good measure.
