Everyone knew that that GOW 3 was not the last of Kratos and looks like SCEA has done a good job and keeping em happy :)

So the elephant is representing ancient Persian gods? Monsters? Demons? Mystical animals? Either this guy doesn’t Know Persian mythology or I don’t know my country's history  lol

Seems Q1 is becoming the time for games. Leaving CoD to dominate Q4 but everybody else is still going to be competing for sales

Fallout didn't release in India just because there was a cow which existed in the game. Now here with the elephant going one on one with Kratos I just pray it doesn't create some noise! I really want this game here for real!

they should have fought a bit less pro so you can see the enemies move around and attack more

God of War will always be fun as balls even though the plot no longer means anything

Meh... this series died after GOW2.  Also, WTF, now he has force powers!?!  Weak.

 God of War is awesome, but I detest prequels.So I'm on the fence on this one.

Don't you just love it when the character has more weapons, abilities, and skills in their prequel? It always leaves me asking "so what happened later? Why was he no longer able to pull of guys' heads and use them as projectiles in GOW? Why was he no longer picking up enemies' weapons? Could have come in very handy."

God of War has always been my favorite action game since the psp and all of trailers they've shown all these years since the very first god of war.

Kratos' weapons were chained to his arms by Aries, told in part 1. Having them here is a break from previous story.

It seems like a late cash on,

they took early next gen graphics of GoW3, add some sands of time ideas, the Titan quest satyrs,  an "original" sub title name, the darksider sub weapon, jumped a bit earlier than the previous prequels and here we go,

with zero originality and story extension, they made a "new" title, out of nowhere to milk the series, because the next gen will take a further while to appear, why not to milk the die hard fans once more, with minimoum investments and no risks?

Your man Todd (last name not given), is he the director of Ascension? I didn't see the pop-up introducing the guy.

 @D1S Well, they have to add to the previous games, it doesn't seem fitting in a prequel but if they don't do it, then the game has nothing new to offer. So they really have no choice but to add.

 @D1S Haha! Remember that on a number of occasions during the first three games he was depowered during the stories progression. Cheap feeling, I know. Your comment also made me think of R2-D2 from the prequels. :/

 @InquisitorCrox I'm definitely one of those fans. I feel drawn to this because it is GOW and it has delivered before, but I also feel that franchises should just stop after a certain point. Said point has been reached for GOW, imo. I don't see what else this could add to Kratos's development.

If you're talking about the Blades of Chaos, he got them when he swore to serve Ares which was shown in a cutscene in GOW1.

 @Scorpion1813 The only time we get to play as Kratos when he was the God of War, was GOS (possibly) and the early part of GOW2 and even then his power had been reduced. He was born a demigod (which he was unaware of until GOS/GOW2). He became a full god at the end of either GOW1/GOS. In GOW2, he was stripped of all his godly powers and made mortal, which he remained until his (attempted?) suicide in GOW3. In most games, the powers he uses are granted to him by weapons, items, gods or titans. He never seemed to really have any powers of his own.

 @Gravelord_Nito Yeah, my mistake. Thought the game was to be set before the murder of his wife and kid. Him being 'less mad' makes no sense to me since it is after he was tricked into killing his family.

@Klokateer So they're maintaining the practice of 'new game, new director'? Interesting. Thanks for the info.

 @Klokateer oh i see, i was confused about this too, but i forgot that kratos was using the blades of athena in the later games, not what he has here.
