Today is one of those lazy Saturdays. So I’ll keep todays post short. Its very rare that I would hit the reply button on a game trialer/commercial as much as I did with the new God of War Ascenion trailer titled ” From Aashes”. Originally debuted during superbowl, for anyone who has played the God of War series who is familiar with the main characters Kratos, everlasting quest or rage and vengance yet haunted by nightmares of his family’s death by his own hands. This commercial as one Youtube commenter pointed out ” shows a man’s breaking point and vulnerability”.
The song used is a Living Phantoms remix of Ellie Goulding’s ” Hanging On”. The actor playing Kratos is named Brandom White who was used a few times as a motion and character model of the main character and has been featured on Men’s Fitness magazine for his (ahem) ripped body.
God of War Ascension will be available in stores March 12, 2013.
