Throughout the God of War franchise, protagonist Kratos has certainly had his share of kills. With a game so centered on the theme of vengeance, Kratos has taken the lives of many soldiers, gods, titans, animals, and civilians alike. Soon players will be getting a glimpse of Kratos' life before he became a god, and the story of his rise is sure to include just as many Olympian deaths.
God of War: Ascension will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 3, and is said to be a prequel to the original release.
