The latest trailer from "God of War: Ascension" shows off some of the opening combat sequence as well as choice story bits from the Sony Santa Monica prequel.
You can see Kratos' QTE-enabled escape from captivity, along with the Ghost of Sparta being drafted into the defense of his country by his fellow soldiers. Also, more monster-smiting.
From the official synopsis:
Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to God of War. Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family.
The new trailer drops the same day that the single player demo goes live for all PSN users.
"God of War: Ascension" will be available on the PS3 March 12.
