[Update: Now Official] ‘GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION’ TRAILER: Kratos Stays Brooding

[Caff note: Sony has since confirmed the shit out of this leak. Makes sense.]

Oh boy, the leaky ship that is the Internet continues. God of War: Ascension  is the sequel to the third game starring Kratos the Smoldering, and it has a trailer, box art, and Amazon listing. All before the official reveal.

Hit the jump for trailer and details.


A product page on Amazon, complete with box art and trailer (above), reveals the game is calledGod of War: Ascension. Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to use the letters “IV” anywhere, and going by the narration in the short trailer it appears this is going to be a prequel.

The short trailer, which contains no gameplay footage, shows a stylised Kratos struggling against what look like his inner demons. Or hey, maybe outer demons! It also mentions that, before he was a God capable of killing everything, he used to be a man. Who fought not for rage.

The game’s listing says:

Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far.
