“God of War fans rejoice! Infamous Spartan warrior Kratos is preparing to return to the PlayStation 3 system. This brand new trailer marks the official unveiling to the world of forthcoming game, God of War: Ascension.”
“The most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far, God of War: Ascension takes us right back to where it all began. Discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom and vengeance.”

The (accidental) reveal gives the game’s name — God of War: Ascension, a trailer, temporary box art, and the brief product description seen below. The official announcement from Sony should come later today. If so, we’ll update this post with additional details. In the mean time, enjoy the trailer below.
