E3 2012: God Of War: Ascension Set For March 12, 2013

Yep, we got a date along with a ton of kick-ass gameplay.

One of the most anticipated games of the generation has been confirmed for March 12, 2013, which makes perfect sense, historically.

The first two GoW entries for consoles (not for the PSP) launched in March so why break the tradition? And what we saw of the gameplay is so out of control insane - on both a bloody and over-the-top epic level - that it's hard to put into words. We're just hoping everything goes smoothly and the game doesn't get delayed...of course, we're not expecting that as SCEA is usually pretty good about sticking to release dates, so we'll just count on March.

The instant we can get that gameplay up here, we will.

I hope Todd Papy said more about the single player campaign but, hey, that gameplay trailer as awesome! Good to have a date for it already!

Btw, I can't help but notice that Kratos took some pointers from Nathan Drake when climbing up ledges. LOL His movement is much more natural this time around.

The graphics for this game are astounding. However anyone else watching the stream think that kratos was going to rip or cut the elephants trunk off? I was slightly disappointed it didn't happen :P

Looking forward to getting behind Kratos again.

Ya, but I'm glad it showed him cutting the skull open to expose the brain. I mean lets be honest, he rips a lot of shit off.

That's one reason I was always going on about Dante's Inferno, 4 executions per enemy instead of 1.

I didn't think the God of War demo could be topped but then we got the Last of Us demo (O_O). Epic.
Side note: no FF mention and what about Agent? Either way, great show!

Damn, How am I going to make it until March?!

Definitely the game of the show. The Last of Us looked pretty badass too.

Is it just me or did they speed up the game play? If so, I like this move, I always felt Kratos moved a bit too slow inbetween swings. The conference presentation seemed like he was more agile and faster. the grpahics are just gorgeous. And Elephant headed Ogre dudes are just awesome awesome

I was actually expecting it to show up a little sooner but I can wait as long as it takes since I don't consider it a real entry in the series.

You seeing Prometheus this weekend? I'm pulling the typical me and after bashing the very idea of a prequel to Alien I've already purchased tickets for the midnight Imax showing.

Actually I'm going to wait until Monday during the day to avoid the crowds but I am super stoked for it. I'm an early fan of Noomi Rapace after her performance in the Dragon Tattoos and Sherlock Holmes 2.

Is it me, or have they improved the graphics significantly since GOW III?!

I'm so excited for this game, it's not even funny :)
Btw, did anyone find the elephant somewhat comical?

Looks awesome though Kratos looks odd without the Golden Fleece.

What I like is it looks like there might be some more impact to Kratos' strikes where they usually feel a little less so than I'd like.

bad a$$!
wish it was a bit gorier though, i mean GOW3 was so over the top this looks like toy story!
ok slicing a guys head open to expose his brain is not exactly kids material, but compared to ripping a trolls eye out and ripping a guys head off with your bare hands it is!

It might be later in the game. He was manipulating time somehow as well. Looks awesome though!
