Sony revealed the first gameplay demo of God of War Ascension at today’s E3 press conference event. God of War Ascension takes place before the events of any other game in the series, and is told from the position before Kratos was consumed with revenge and sought to destroy everything (he’s still a hero at this point - pushing people out of the way of incoming javelins and the like).
The gameplay demo revealed that combat has been overhauled to a much faster pace, and forgoes a lot of the quick time event madness of previous games (it’s still there, but not nearly as much). Kratos is much more dynamic, taking enemies’ weapons and using the environment. Here’s the trailer (warning, it’s an M-rated game - blood and all that).
So whatdo you think of Kratos’ new, faster edge? Comment away!
