God of War: Ascension “From Ashes” Live Action Trailer, New Demo Coming This Month

After releasing a small tease yesterday, Sony has finally revealed the full live action trailer for the PS3 exclusive, God of War: Ascension.

While we are on the subject of it, they have also revealed that this month, a new demo will be appearing on the PlayStation Network. For those who have been participating in the God of War: Rise of The Warrior social networking game, you’ll be able to get your hands on the demo early, before it releases on the net. The demo will be single-player and will be different from the one shown off at E3 and the one packaged in Total Recall. Gametrailers premiered the first 30 minutes during last nights GTTV, which you can view here.

If you missed out the recent multiplayer Beta, here’s some gameplay footage, courtesy of WreckedPixel.

So what do you guys think of the new trailer? Does it capture a more human side of Kratos?

  • Whats up with these “Live Action Teaser” videos lately? Do the developers forgot how to record and edit gameplay videos. This is the cheapest trend in gaming nowadays.

    • Well, to be fair, it’s a commercial that’s going to air during the Super Bowl. Not everyone that watches it is a gamer, and someone who sees gameplay or CGI may be immediately put off by it. At least with a live action trailer, the viewer’s attention is caught and they begin to wonder about what it is they’re watching, and possibly take interest.

      Cheapest? Really? I don’t think that’s the case with Live actions. You have to pay for editing, actors, pretty much everything for a CGI one.

      This is hardly a cheap trailer to, since it’s airing on the Super Bowl. Sum millions per 30 seconds

    This is one of the better live action trailers for a game that’s been made. I’d put it up there with the live action Halo trailers. It managed to show Kratos as something other than an angry, revenge driven killer, and show him in a more personal light. Not to mention the song that was picked for the trailer making it even better. Good job Sony 🙂

    It reminded me of 300 at the beginning lol, Great Trailer though!

    Magical trailer, love the guy they picked for Kratos. He would fit the part as far as body look-a-like in a live action movie, but wonder if his voice would be on par.

  • Epic …

  • Cannot wait.

    Hey everyone go check out the first 30 Min of God of war Ascension at IGN.com. They actually managed to make the game look better than God of War 3. All the PC people saying consoles are behind PCs should watch this because there foot will literally be shoved down there throats. Trust me your jaw will drop.

    The song they used for the live action trailer sucks, bad.
