God of War: Ascension single-player demo available today

As promised, the single-player demo for God of War: Ascension will be coming today. It will let you see red for a while in advance of the game's March 12 release.

The demo will be coming later today on the PlayStation Store, when it updates. This comes alongside the game's launch trailer, curiously releasing a full two weeks before launch. Kratos just couldn't wait to get his rage on, apparently.

God of War: Ascension single-player preview: all about scale

God of War: Ascension single-player preview: all about scale

A shirtless, musclebound man sits on the floor of his cell, chained up. Kratos sizes him up--only to have the man crushed to death by the giant hand of a towering beast. This beast picks up the building Kratos is in, causing the Spartan to tumble around. It's yet another one of God of War's signature boss battles. After a rather lengthy battle, this larger-than-life creature finally gets taken down by Kratos' chains. Of course, Kratos was never known for his good luck. An even larger mountain-sized behemoth grabs the carcass of your downed foe, carrying Kratos along for the ride.

Whoa. It's hard not to get impressed by the awesome scale represented by God of War: Ascension. While Santa Monica Studio's latest is a prequel, it manages to match the epic nature of Kratos' final adventure.

Sony Santa Monica's 'creative and business reasons' for not moving away from God of War

While the Sony Santa Monica umbrella spans many games via its external development collaborations, its internal studio is best known for the God of War franchise. In fact, Sony's "God of War team" has never worked on a game outside of that iconic franchise. Santa Monica Studio director Shannon Studstill talked about the studio's attempt at moving away from Kratos, and what ultimately brought them back to the franchise with next year's Ascension.
