God of War: Ascension is the seventh game in the series and follows along the lines of being a prequel to the rest of the God of War series. The game takes place in Greece and deals with Greek mythology while playing in a third-person type of game centered around adventure and action. The game stars the hero of the story, Kratos and tells of his life and the events previous to the others in the God of War series.
The recent news in the God of War development universe involves the director, Todd Papy. Todd Papy recently left Sony Santa Monica after announcing of his departure on his Twitter account. Papy stated in a Twitter post:
“Yesterday was my last day @SonySantaMonica. I’m extremely honored to have been part of that team. <3 you SSM! Time for the next adventure!!”
Papy not only helped with Ascension, but also helped with the design of God of War III. Along with mentioning how he was departing Sony Santa Monica, he made sure that fans knew that Sony was still in good hands with many people and new talent to continue to help Sony Santa Monica.
