If you are a God of War fan, you are probably starting to get excited about the upcoming release of God of War Ascension, which is now just days away from a release after months of waiting. After that though, the series will inevitably continue on the next-generation PS4 hardware and we have a brief teaser to share with you, suggesting that the transition is going to be an exciting moment for fans.
With Ascension due out in March, 2014 could be the year when a new God of War game is announced for the PS4 – the first game to come on updated hardware. It is going to be an exciting time for both fans and the developers of course, and despite the fact that Ascension has yet to release, it seems that talk on God of War PS4 has already begun.
Mark Simon is the lead game designer for God of War Ascension and he told Eurogamer in a recent interview that the next game on the PlayStation 4 is going to ‘blow gamers away’. Simon explained that having 16 times more memory than the PS3 will enable them to take the shackles off in terms of graphic potential, and show off a lot more of the game detail than what was previously possible on PS3.
He also asked for time from the community and time to study the new hardware, but when the time is right he said that you’ll be blown away with what they could come up with as their team is ‘pretty good’.
For now though, he reiterated that focus is firmly on the upcoming Ascension game, as they’ll be working on all sorts of add-on content to keep fans busy throughout the year. We don’t blame him though for getting excited about the future, as the 8GB of RAM really does change everything from this point onwards and it is going to be great seeing all of the existing franchises become even better, with the memory freedom that they now have at their disposal.
Are you pumped up about the future of PS4 thanks to the 8GB of RAM spec? How good can God of War next-gen become with the boost in graphics that the PS4 will bring?
