Sony announces God of War: Ascension - first info, video

Following an Amazon-sprung leak, Sony has jumped the gun and announced God of War: Ascension, with the first teaser showing a still pretty angry Kratos.

In what is probably the worst kept secret in gaming, God of War: Ascension is coming from Sony Santa Monica for PS3, the company has announced this morning.

Ascension will, according to Sony, lead us back to the "origins of Kratos as he takes his first steps on a now legendary quest for freedom."

Todd Pappy will become the series's sixth game director, following in the footsteps of David Jaffe, Cory Barlog and Stig Asmussen. Pappy will take part in a live chat on the US PS Blog regarding the game on April 30.

The announce follows teasing for the past week on the game, featuring aa teaser image from the PlayStation Facebook page.

The image was stored on SCE America's servers with the file name "ps_gow-teaser_12371_hp".

Amazon sprang the game before its official 2pm reveal today.

The teaser and shots from it via Sony are below.
