God of War: Acension (Sony)

Where do you go after you've defeated the gods? Back to the beginning, apparently.

On Thursday, Sony formally announced God of War: Ascension for the PS3, the next game in the brutal action franchise. Or perhaps it's the first game, if you're going chronologically.

A teaser trailer offers scant few details, but heavily hints that this is a prequel to the franchise: "There was a time before Kratos became the monster known as the ghost of Sparta…a time when something other than rage consumed him, a time when in spite of the madness that plagued him, Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god…" Yep, prequel city.

Judge for yourself:

Pretty cool, but pretty cryptic, too. Sony plans on revealing more at 8:00 am (PST) on April 30th during a live event streamed on the God of War: Ascension Facebook page.
