Kratos is back, and he has the power to control time! Yes you read correct. During Sony’s press conference a live demo of Ascension was shown, Kratos was up to his old tricks with his dual wielding chain-fu, and gruesome quick time kills, but for some reason he’s able to control time.
In the demo, a scaffolding gets destroyed, but Kratos reverses time and then stops it in order to climb the scaffolding. No word on how this pertains to the story, but I know I can’t wait to an HBO version of Prince of Persia.
