The latest hack, slash, slice, dice, impale and gouge-em-up in the God of War series and its unstoppable anti-hero Kratos are back.
- This game is the 7th in the God of War series.
- Set as a prequel to the entire series, the game takes place ten years before the events of God of War (2005).
- With Ares still alive (and still holding his position as the God of War), Kratos is beholden to him, but has broken a blood oath and begins the game in chains for his crime.
- The backdrop is a war between the Primordials, who created the Earth.
- Kratos' objective is to kill the Furies, guardians who were created as a result of the war.
- This is the first God of War game to contain multiplayer.
- Co-op play will also be available for the first time ever in the series.
- Kratos is voiced once again by Terrence C Carson and his wife Lysandra is voiced by Commander Shepard herself: Jennifer Hale.
- The fighting mechanics have been re-tooled.
- The game is out on PS3 on Thursday 14th March for AUD$99.95 or NZD$119.95.
