Kratos is coming back to the PlayStation 3 in God of War: Ascension. Rumblings of God of War IV have been floating around for months, but a PlayStation Facebook post last week kicked thing into overdrive. Today, Amazon posted the game's box art and a teaser trailer.

Although the trailer shows no gameplay, it features the familiar narration of the Titan Gaia as she sets up what certainly sounds like a prequel to the five God of War games that are already out. In the teaser, Gaia states that there was a time before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta and before rage consumed him.

"A time when in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust God," Gaia says. "A time when he will no longer be bound in blood."

The God of War story millions have already played picks up after Kratos has pledged allegiance to Ares, had the Blades of Chaos burned into his flesh, and killed his wife and daughter after an Ares trick. Gaia's words make it sound as if God of War: Ascension chronicles Kratos' time before all that -- when he was leading the Spartan army and perhaps "ascending" to his legendary status.

Amazon describes the game as: "Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far."

That sounds awesome. I want to see what Kratos was like when he still had a family. When he wasn't a crazy motherf*cker.

Yea, not a fan.

Prequels are a lazy and often abused device of game and movie writers these days who can't add anything curent or on going to the existing material so rather than contribute to it they embellish what's already there. The lame truth of it is it's a lot easier to work backwards than forwards.

Now that said, if this ties flashback type missions into what is currently going on with Kratos it could still be pretty relevant and worthwhile.

I was hoping more for a switch to Norse mythology or having you play as Zeus fighting the titans, but eh, looks good.

I love the God Of War Series and the Singleplayer Story, that's the reason why I'll buy it on day 1. As for the multiplayer... I will give it a try.
