After all manner of rumours, rumblings and hidden teasers, SONY have finally announced the latest game in their epic God of War series - God of War: Ascension.
While early reports thought it would be a PS Vita title, God of War: Ascension remains a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Described by SONY as "the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far", Ascension is a prequel to the original trilogy, giving us the chance to discover the origins of Kratos and see the beginning of his quest for freedom.
A teaser trailer and box art - showing Kratos chained - was also revealed. What wasn't announced, unfortunately, was the release date. We may have to wait for E3 in June before we know just when Ascension will be hitting the shelves.
