It’s been rumbling around the internet for some time now. But Kratos and his chains of Olympus are back on PS3 in what looks like what could be a prequel to the five games that are already out.

The trailer shows no actual gameplay footage but. That familiar voice of Titan Gaia can be heard saying “there was a time before Kratos became the Ghost of Sparta and before rage consumed him.”

The trailer and box art were released on but since then, the site seems to not be functioning properly. hmm.

If you have never played a God of War game, I strongly suggest you do as they are the best games of its genre. Fingers crossed then that this potential prequel keeps to the same recipe, but with some added innovation. And of course those all important massive boss fights.

What do you think about the next God of War game being a prequel. let us know your thoughts and what you would like to see in the new game below.

[UPDATE] So after the leak from Amazon, Sony has officially announced God of War Ascension, saying:

“The most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far, God of War: Ascension takes us right back to where it all began.”

“Discover the origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom.”

There will be a God of War live stream on Monday, April 30 to show gamers what’s in store for the prequel.
