God Of War: Ascension Super Bowl trailer
The teased February 1 trailer was, indeed, for God of War, and it’s a live action epic…
As we suspected, the teased first of Feb reveal was for the upcoming God of War: Ascension. The trailer, which is a live action affair, is pretty damn impressive, and deals with Kratos losing his family and becoming the Ghost of Sparta.
In the teaser, I caught a little feel of Frank Miller’s 300, which isn’t surprising, given the Spartan theme of God of War, but the beginning of this trailer is 300 through-and-through, and the game will also come with a 300-themed DLC pre-order. This includes the Mythological Heroes and Villains pack, and a King Leonidas 300 armour and spear multiplayer DLC, as well as a 48 hour XP booster and double-sided poster.
God of War: Ascension will be released on PlayStation 3 on March 12 in the US and March 13 in Europe, and it’ll come with a demo of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us.
