Sony have released a live action trailer for God of War: Ascension.


The prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise, God of War: Ascension explores the more human side of Kratos as he struggles with the pain of losing everything he has ever loved.

Sony Computer Entertainment has collaborated with Imaginary Forces, the creative minds behind some of the epic cut-scenes that gamers will see in God of War: Ascension, and the game’s developer Santa Monica Studio, to bring Kratos and his family to life, paying careful attention to remain true to the game itself.

The ‘From Ashes’ live action trailer sets the story for God of War: Ascension which sees Kratos, tricked by the god Ares into killing the only people he ever loved, his wife and child. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins and the chance to avenge his family. ‘From Ashes’ features a special arrangement of Ellie Goulding’s track ‘Hanging On’ and marks one of the most ambitious video productions ever undertaken by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Here is the trailer:
