God of War: Ascension video introduces the Furies

God of War: Ascension developers Sony Santa Monica has showed off one of the enemies Kratos will face when the game releases next year.

The Furies, female chthonic deities of vengeance, are “bound to Hell” in the game due to seeking retribution for only those the sisters “deemed guilty.” They hold in their hands a contract with Kratos which bounds his life with that of Ares – and we all know how that turned out in the first game.

At any rate, they are unhappy with the fact Kratos has broken the contract and his off doing his own bidding; therefore, they are seeking retribution and only his death will suffice, apparently.

See them in action for yourself below.

God of War: Ascension will release March 12 in North America, March 13 in Europe, March 14 in Australia and New Zealand, and March 15 in the UK.

Thanks, Gematsu.
