Kratos is back and he’s blood thirsty and ready to rise his way to the top. Sony have shown some gameplay from the latest entry to the hugely succesful series, God Of War Ascension. In the footage we were once again reunited with the mans godly blades of fury as he hacked his way through a whole host of enemies. On top of all the hack and slash action against some of the more lowly enemies, we got to se some of the games more gory features in the form of simple decapitations on smaller enemies as well as one particuarly bloody execution which required well timed button hits to take the legs of one enmy and crack open the skull of another.
It isn’t just all blood and gore though, with the video showcasing some of Kratos’ other abilities primarily how to open up new areas of the map in order to progress. The obligatory visual update is included, with all the action looking more and more realistic whilst also keeping that magical look, especially when it comes to elephant headed creatures and of course the Kraken.
While we didn’t get to see Kratos dispatch the giant sea creature, we did get to see the man show of some of his agility, leaping from tentacle to tentacle before heading into the depths below to undoubtedly finish the fight with some help from the player when the game finally hits stores on March 12 2013.
