It’s about two weeks until we see the next (previous?) chapter in the God of War Saga with the prequel, God of War: Ascension. It’s probably the very last one we’ll see on the current gen – and by all accounts quite nearly maximises the PlayStation 3’s potential . You can now see it for yourself, because the game’s single player demo is now available to all PS3 users worldwide. Sony’s also released a brand new trailer for the game, which you can see after the jump.

I was wowed by God of War 3 on a technical level, but left wanting by the actual gameplay and narrative – which I’m hoping Ascension can make up for.

It could just. Seems that even before his fall, Kratos was a little bit on the angry side.

As an additional bonus, the HD remaster of the very first God of War is now completely free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Hurry though; it’ll only be available for the next two weeks. 

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces.I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.I am also the emperor of the backend

    Please, keep the puzzles to the minimum… Or at least make them entertaining. I was so put off by the constant puzzles. They weren’t even hard, just annoying.

    I wish the camera in Metal Gear Rising was more “cinematic” like in GOW 3…

    I can’t wait for Ascension!

      Try from your console (under “What’s new”); seems to be missing from the online/web store.
