God of War: Ascension will Boast Multiplayer, Gameplay & Info Dissected
God of War: Ascension was announced officially by Sony last week, in which reacted to the delight of fans to see Kratos and the God of War series back in the spotlight. But many are wondering how it ties in? After Ghost of Sparta and before the original God of War, Ascension fits in as a prequel and is out for revenge against Ares.

Yes, it is true. If you want to see how it will tie in watch the first video down below.
