Sony teased this new live action trailer for God of War: Ascension at the start of this week. We didn’t actually run the tease because, well, teasers for teasers are a strange thing. We liked them when they started, but now we’re not sure what to think with them popping up all over.

That teaser lead to “From Ashes,” the clip at the head of this post. It’s the full version of the ad Sony will show during the Super Bowl this weekend. Enjoy it. Do any of you get a Gladiator feeling from it?

God of War: Ascension is set to release for the PlayStation 3 on March 12th in North America. Europe will see it on March 13th, while Australia will need to wait until the 14th and the UK (which is apparently not a part of Europe) will need to wait until the 15th.

Finally, and this is just me being weird, but something strikes me as odd when it comes to Kratos portrayed in physical form. There’s just something about the dude that really doesn’t sit well with me whenever Sony tosses him into a live action advert. Am I alone on that?
