Some brand-new details on singleplayer have been revealed.
The game is building on the God of War 3 engine. New material, shades, textures, lighting and other improvements have been made so far with the engine. Expect it to be just as epic as past God of War titles.
The game will be showing off a more human side of Kratos. We have already seen some of the background history in the psp version, this will touch more on it. This prequel will be a bit different then the PSP prequel, since it will be touching on more of Kratos ambitions and what he wants out of life.
Story takes place six months after the slaying of his family. Kratos has already made the deal with Ares and yes, he will have the Blades of Choas. Since this is before all the God of War titles, he will be less buff.
The reason why this title isn’t called God of War 4 is because the title isn’t coming after 3, which is something the team did not want people to get confused with. They wanted players to come in and start fresh with the series. Naming it four would make people believe that they would have to play God of War 1 through 3.
The cyclops that was shown off during the multiplayer is as big as Chronos from God of War 3, if not just a bit smaller.
Concerns over the Multiplayer mode have been shouted all around forums today. The team has assured that no way is the single player being dumb down. Single player has always been their “Bread and Butter” and adding multiplayer is something they are excited about.
Stay tuned as we’ll be uploading some videos for God of War: Ascension.
