Kratos is back! Sony has officially announced God of War: Ascension, a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
You may remember that Sony were teasing a reveal last week and there was much speculation that it would be a new God of War game, well, that has now turned out to be correct. Yay!
Details on the game is quite scarce at the moment, with no release given by Sony, but we do know that Acsension will be a prequel based on the official blurb from the press release:
