God of War Ascension release date decreed at E3

Sound the horn of war, God of War Ascension will be hitting the PlayStation 3 on March 12, 2013. The prequel to Kratos’s epic saga to seek bloody vengeance against the gods will begin in first quarter of next year.

Besides a release date, the God of War gameplay demo at Sony’s E3 presentation featured more of the brutal hack and slash gameplay the series is famous for. Kratos cut his way through a mob of goatmen, got flung around by a Kraken, then fought a giant half-man, half-elephant, and cut out its brain.

We're looking forward to shredding foes as Kratos once more. Check back for more information as this story develops.
