“Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood – tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken… Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.”
In connection with God Of War Ascension, Gaming Heads have revealed a life-sized bust of the surly Spartan. Limited to 500 units worldwise only, the 28-inch tall statue will set you back a titan-sized fee of $599.99, which is more than a PlayStation 4 will set you back. Still, whilst that may be “for the gamers” if you’re a hardcore God of War fanatic you’re going to love this.
Interestingly other features of the purchase include “a validation card which allows you to purchase the same model number in future releases in the God of War collection.” So if you get #32 here, you get first dibs on #32 in future releases. I like that. It’s like a God Of War loyalty card and if you’re going to pay more than a PS4 to have Kratos scare the crap out of you each and every morning when you wake up you’re relatively likely to be interested in the following items in the series.
You can order Kratos and his big stripey face over here at the Gaming Heads website.
