One of the flagship franchises of PlayStation 3, God of War, is getting a sequel. While this news has been known for quite some time now, there still hasn’t been much information about the newest game in the series, titled God of War: Ascension. Recently, the game got a trailer at PAX Prime that showed off the “Furies” of ancient Greek mythology.

The upcoming game will have new characters called the Furies. Though the trailer doesn’t really say if they will be friends or enemies, knowing Kratos, you’ll probably end up brutally killing and dismembering them regardless of them being your friends or enemies. Ascension is a prequel that will be set six months after Kratos murdered his family. Kratos is seaking the Furies – who punish oathbreakers – so he kill them and leave the service of Ares without punishment. Details about Ascension were originally leaked earlier this year because of a listing on Amazon.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that God of War: Ascension will have multiplayer. So far only one gameplay mode has been revealed that has eight players battling it out against each other in two teams of four. After one team has been dominated by the other, the team that controls all points gains access to certain weapons that will help them take down a gigantic AI controlled foe. In this case, it was one unfortunate Cyclops that met his end in a brutal way via some very painful looking finishers.

The God of War series is the story of Kratos, who was a soldier from Sparta. Kratos was the servant of the gods and worked primarily to defeat the enemies of Olympus and run away from his past. The first game begins with Kratos declaring that “The gods of Olympus have abandoned me” and flinging himself over the tallest cliff in Greece; the rest of the game details how and why this happens. The game mostly takes place in the temple of Pandora where Kratos must find the power to stop Ares from destroying Athens.
