Set in the realm of Greek mythology, God of War: Ascension is an epic adventure that allows players to take on the climactic role of the ex-Spartan warrior Kratos as he finds a way to break the blood oath that binds him to the god, Ares. Six months after being tricked into killing his wife and child, a younger Kratos is sentenced to a life of madness with the Furies, caged in a titan sized prison for the living damned. Fighting insanity, his will is tested to the limit as he seeks to break his bond and gain the clarity to seek revenge on Ares for his part in the death of his family. Armed with double-chained blades, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest for redemption.
The new bundle includes God of War: Ascension, along with the five previous games in the series, making it the ultimate collectors’ item for God of War fans.
The Garnet Red PS3, boldly colored in recognition of Kratos' distinctive tattoo, comes with a 500GB hard disk drive (HDD), providing more than enough room for consumers to download games, movies, and TV shows from PlayStation Network, and store their personal media files, including music, photos, and videos. A 30-day PlayStation Plus trial membership is also included, enabling purchasers to check out the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection along with other benefits such as deep discounts, online storage for game saves, and exclusive access to select demos and game betas.
“We’re excited to introduce this stunning Garnet Red PS3 that pays homage to one of the best franchises ever launched on PlayStation platforms,” said John Koller, vice president of platforms marketing, SCEA. “We wanted to give our fans a complete collection of the series in this bundle so they can relive nostalgic memories of their first God of War adventure or experience the adventure for the first time if they are new to the series.”
The God of War Saga completes the collection, with God of War, God of War II, God of War III, and God of War: Origins Collection, which consists of God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta.
The limited edition bundle will hit stores on March 12, 2013, day-and-date with the standalone game, for $349 (MSRP).
