Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studios has made available a new God of War: Ascension PS3 single player campaign demo video this weekend with details below.

To quote: Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and daughter, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved.

Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken. This is where your journey in the story of God of War: Ascension begins...

It has been well over six long, enduring months you've waited since your first look at our Ascension single-player campaign at E3 last year. So, as we get ready to close our multiplayer beta early next week, the time has come to focus on where Ascension and its story will take you this March. Here's your first glimpse:

This trailer is only a quick taste. You didn't think Ascension was only 30 seconds long, right?! We have more single-player details to unravel and showcase as we rage towards launch. Most importantly, in late February, we're bringing you a full single player demo!

We'll be announcing details in the coming weeks, but if you want to get in early (and earn a ton of exclusive in-game rewards), join the Rise of the Warrior experience at We just re-launched with a refined interface and streamlined challenges, making your journey through its story to unlock rewards even better than before.

Stay tuned for more single-player details and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you again to all of our multiplayer beta warriors!
