Kratos returns on March 12. Sony and Santa Monica Studios made sure to remind us today by sending out the launch trailer for God of War Ascension, which you can view above. It manages to check all the right boxes. Pissed off Kratos? Yup. Giant, hulking monsters? You know it. Blood and guts? Oh, absolutely.

Additionally, Sony announced that a single player demo of Ascension would be made available to the general public today on the PlayStation Network. The demo lets you play the opening moments of the game, giving you “a tantalizing taste of where Ascension’s story begins.”
