GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION | 2013

In 2013, God of War: Ascension released on PlayStation 3. God of War: Ascension is an action-adventure hack and slash video game that tells the origin story of Kratos, a Spartan warrior who breaks his oath to the God of War, Ares, and faces the wrath of the Furies, the enforcers of punishment.

 

Nerdy Facts:

  • The game has a recurring gag involving the boat captain, who first appeared in the original game and was killed by Kratos. He is seen in various stages of the game, either as a corpse or a ghost, and often insults Kratos.

  • The game has a secret ending, which can be unlocked by completing the game on any difficulty and watching the credits until the end. The ending shows Kratos walking away from the Furies’ corpses and encountering a mysterious traveler, who is revealed to be the Norse god Tyr.

  • The game has several references to other media, such as the movie 300, the TV show Spartacus, and the comic book series Sin City.
