Important! If you attend the PAX 2012 God of War: Ascension panel in person, we will give you a way to access the upcoming God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta!
God of War fans! For the first time in the history of this epic franchise, the gods of Sony Santa Monica Studio will be throwing down the gauntlet in our first-ever God of War panel! This is a panel you do not want to miss. Unless you want Kratos to seek revenge on you for not watching, and you know how that goes down.
The panel will take place in the great halls of PAX 2012 this Friday, August 31st from 5:00pm to 6:00pm in the Unicorn Theater (located in the Convention Center). If you’re not attending PAX, you can watch the livestream on Twitch.tv!
God of War has always been about providing you the most epic “larger-than-life” moments and you can rest assured we’re going to make sure our fans remember “this hour.” So what in the name of Kratos is going down?!
God of War: Ascension Game Director Todd Papy, Lead Game Designer Mark Simon, Principal Character Artist Patrick Murphy, and the award-winning writer behind the God of War series, Marianne Krawczyk, will discuss the origins of God of War: Ascension and provide a never-before-seen look at the evolution of Kratos.It’s fitting we will be in the Unicorn Theater, wouldn’t you agree? Tune in live on Twitch.tv at 5:00pm Pacific Time or BE THERE!
The team will debut a brand-new exclusive reveal trailer of a major character in God of War: Ascension that Kratos will encounter as he seeks to break the blood oath to Olympus that has bound him to Ares.
Our team will also discuss the secrets and creation process behind God of War, the impossibilities of creating massive gameplay moments (remember fighting Cronos in GOWIII?), and genre-defining visceral combat mechanics. Additionally, you’ll learn about the origins of bringing multiplayer to God of War for the first time — it’s what we call “our Titan.”
The God of War PAX 2012 panel is an “hour” every God of War fan at the convention or anywhere around the world reading this should tune in at 5:00pm Pacific Time this Friday. Not only do we promise you’ll be entertained, but we can’t be certain what else may be revealed as these creators of God of War have a helluva story to tell you about.
One last thing. The God of War Panel is not only about God of War: Ascension, but the complete history of the franchise. As you prepare for God of War: Ascension to drop down on March 12, 2013, relive Kratos’ epic journey step by step, every earth-shattering larger than life moment, every treacherous god destroyed on his quest for revenge and redemption, in the God of War: Saga – the complete collection of every God of War game now available in retail stores across North America.
