We have a quick heads-up for those of you who are still excited following on from the official confirmation of a brand new PS3 exclusive God of War game. Ascension is now on the way and later on today could bring the world’s first glimpse of Kratos in action.

Sony has sent out a message on Twitter, reminding God of War fans around the world that there will be a live stream in a few hours in which game director Todd Papy will be unveiling the game to a watching audience.

There’s no confirmation that gameplay will be shown, but considering that there is a live stream put in place, we doubt that Papy will be merely talking about the game – he must have some juicy action to unveil for thirsty God of War fanatics. Unlike the Assassin’s Creed 3 reveal, we’re yet to see any initial screenshot leaks for the game, so we have no idea how the game looks graphics wise.

We hoped that Sony may confirm a title for the PS Vita as well, but Sony has already ruled this out for the time being as Ascension will be a PS3 exclusive. With that in mind, the game has a lot of expectations to live up to after God of War 3 and also especially since other announced PS3 games are looking so good – The Last of Us being the one that stands out so far.

Will this end up being a prequel to the first God of War game, or will Ascension take a route similar to the two PSP games Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta in which we saw a completely different story? We can’t wait to see the quality of Ascension, so we’ll be tuning in to the stream for sure. Will you? If so, let us know your expectations and what you need to see in order to secure your purchase. The live stream will start at 4pm UK time.
