The God of War series has made Sony a lot of money and despite the fact that Kratos’ tale was supposed to have been concluded with God of War III, Sony is not done with the Ghost of Sparta. A trailer has surfaced which says that there was a time before Kratos would break his blood oath to an unjust god. We see images of a Cerberus and a Gorgon, along with that of a woman who appears to be killed. We see Kratos as well, but the only way we really recognize him is through the tattoos on his chest and face. Take a look and see what I mean.

God of War prequel in the works

If you do not pay attention, you might think his skin is pale white in the trailer, but it is really transparent. The illusion of the white is the background light shining through. This is all we really know for sure:

  • This game will be a prequel to the original PS2 game.
  • There is much untold history between the battle where Kratos called out to Ares and when the ashes were bonded to him.

So will this be the first time that players will control Kratos in his original skin? Maybe we will find out when the Playstation blog drops on April 30. This much I do know. If Terrence Carson does not reprise his role as Kratos, I will not support this game, but I doubt that will be an issue.

  1. If Amazon’s release date for God of War: Ascension is actually real, I guess is just too late, december 2013 really?, PS4 is expected to be released on 2014, I mean Ascension will be a huge game but shouldnt wait that long to be launched.

  3. Have you played the PSP god of war games? I thought they were prequels, don’t get me wrong though I’m down for some more Kratos. Think I might have to pick up the PS3 port of the PSP games. Yo and Slick, if there is mulitplayer component to this game I expect to link up lol. 

    • The PSP games were prequels, but he has the ashes of his wife & daughter already bonded to his skin. The fact that you cannot see his skin color in the trailer leads me to believe that this game will take place before that day where the woman cursed him. When his skin was still its natural color.
