About the game -
God of War: Ascension is a third person action-adventure video game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). The game was first released on March 12, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console. It is the seventh installment in the God of War series and prequel to the entire series. Loosely based on Greek mythology, the game is set in Ancient Greece with vengeance as its central motif. The player controls the protagonist Kratos, the former servant of the God of War, Ares, who tricked Kratos into killing his wife and child. Kratos renounced Ares, breaking his blood oath to the god. For this act, Kratos was imprisoned by the three Furies, the guardians of honor and enforcers of punishment. Helped by the oath keeperOrkos, and learning that Ares and the Furies plan to overthrow Mount Olympus, Kratos escapes his imprisonment, defeats the Furies, and reluctantly kills Orkos. Although free of Ares’ bond, Kratos begins to suffer the nightmares that will plague him throughout his adventures.
The gameplay is similar to other games in the God of War series. It focuses on combo-based combat, achieved through the player’s main weapon—the Blades of Chaos—and other weapons acquired by the new World Weapons mechanic, in addition to four magical attacks and a power-enhancing ability. The game features a revamped quick time events system to defeat stronger enemies andbosses, which includes the previous system that requires the player to complete various game controller actions in a timed sequence, as well as a new promptless free-form system. It also features puzzles and platforming elements. In addition to its similar gameplay, it is the first installment to feature online multiplayer for both competitive and cooperative play. It also features a revamped combat system, new gameplay mechanics, and downloadable content.
