God Of War: Ascension: See the trailer, play the demo

1 min read


It’s about two weeks until we see the next (previous?) chapter in the God of War Saga with the prequel, God of War: Ascension. It’s probably the very last one we’ll see on the current gen – and by all accounts quite nearly maximises the PlayStation 3’s potential . You can now see it for yourself, because the game’s single player demo is now available to all PS3 users worldwide. Sony’s also released a brand new trailer for the game, which you can see after the jump.

I was wowed by God of War 3 on a technical level, but left wanting by the actual gameplay and narrative – which I’m hoping Ascension can make up for.

It could just. Seems that even before his fall, Kratos was a little bit on the angry side.

As an additional bonus, the HD remaster of the very first God of War is now completely free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Hurry though; it’ll only be available for the next two weeks.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • I wish the camera in Metal Gear Rising was more “cinematic” like in GOW 3…

    I can’t wait for Ascension!

  • Can we download the GOW I, don’t see it in the PSN store?

    • Try from your console (under “What’s new”); seems to be missing from the online/web store.
