As a lot of you may already know, yesterday was the Super Bowl XLVII which as you may also know is the day when the ads start rolling out for millions of pounds, one of these ads however was quite interesting as it just so happened to be the new trailer for God of War: Ascension.

The trailer itself features some of the gameplay that will be involved in the prequel, which is set to follow Kratos’ shortly after his wife and child died in his hands.

The trailer also explains for the first time how Kratos got his smoky white skin tone, however didn’t explain much more than that I’m afraid.

God of War: Ascension will launch on March 12th, 2013 for the PlayStation 3.
