After months of speculation from avid fans, the mysterious Spartans Stand Tall website has finally ended its countdown and revealed today that there will in-fact be a new God of War game with Kratos called God of War: Ghost of Sparta.
Tired of all the good news? Good, because here’s the bad news for a lot of God of War fans. The newest installment in the God of War series will not be on Playstation 3, but instead only be on Sony’s PSP. I know, it hurts. Similar to 2008’s God of War: Chains of Olympus, Ghost of Sparta will be developed by Sony Santa Monica and Ready at Dawn Studios. Here is the storyline via the official Playstation blog:
This new adventure will serve as a prequel of sorts, picking up where God of War left off. Ghost of Sparta tells the story of Kratos’ ascension to power as the God of War. In his quest to rid the nightmares that haunt him, Kratos must face his dark past to prove his worthiness to the Gods — a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds and finally answer long-awaited questions about Kratos’ tattoo, scar, and family.
