God of War: Ascension – PS3

Journey back to the very first years in Kratos’s story – betrayed by Ares into murdering his wife and child, Kratos must now fight for vengeance and the lucidity to come to terms with what he has done. Ascension will offer multiplayer to God of War players for the first time, which features 8 players total in pursuing one objective. Players will also be able to align themselves with other gods, such as Poseidon and Athena, to gain access to new skills and customization options for multiplayer characters. God of War: Ascension is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 on March 12.
