It seems that God of War fans still reeling from the whole ‘What happens next?’ cliffhanger at which God of War 3 left us, are set to be denied closure with the news that Sony Santa Monica’s next blood-filled adventure through ancient Greece is to be prequel to the series.

Described as ‘the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far’, God of War: Ascension takes players back to where Kratos’ story began as the origins of Kratos and his first steps on his quest for freedom – and later revenge – are laid bare.

Expect plenty more details to emerge at this year’s E3, for now Sony are staying tight-lipped on further details other than the fact it’s set to release on PS3.
