God of War: Ascension made an appearance tonight at Sony's press conference in the form of a gameplay demo. Kratos is certainly back, and it doesn't look like he's lost his touch.
Ascension looks to offer more of the same brutal, but simple, combat that the God of War series is known for. What you can see in the demo is that Kratos can easily change targets, as well as fight multiple enemies at the same time, both mechanically and visually speaking. In addition, Kratos can now punch and kick with his bare hands and feet.
God of War: Ascension will also feature multiplayer team objective battles, where two teams will duke it out in an arena and fight for control of the map. It looks to be just as brutal as the story, featuring the same gory finishers and the like.
