When the North American PlayStation Store updates later today, you'll get your first chance to experience the single-player campaign of Spartan anti-hero Kratos' latest adventure.
Chronologically, God of War: Ascension is actually the series' earliest tale, recounting the trials and tribulations of Kratos mere months after Ares tricks him into murdering his family. The demo releasing later today will focus on the game's opening moments; no doubt, the same section we played at a private press event three weeks ago. Game Director Todd Papy shared the following details on the official PlayStation Blog:
"Make your stand against a Titanic beast and its infected legions.
Unleash your Rage in fiery explosions that burn your enemies to ash.
Impale enemies on your chained blades and use them in combat as living wrecking balls.
Wield the weapons of your enemies in countless new combos.
Climb and slide your way through the chaos as the world turns upside down around you."
If you've any doubts on the veracity of Papy's claims, check out the latest trailer for Ascension below:
