Much of the promotional work on God of War: Ascension has been centered around the game's new multiplayer mode. Which is fine, but I think most long-time fans will be buying this prequel for its single-player campaign, leaving multiplayer to fill the role of cherry on top (or unnecessary distraction, as the case may ultimately be). If you're desperate, IGN has a new story-focused teaser trailer.
Fair warning: the video clocks in at a mere 30 seconds, just long enough to remind us why God of War as a series has made it this far. Indeed, the footage contains fluid, technically impressive battles against awesome mythological creatures. SCE Santa Monica Studio gets a star.
