AREEEESSSS!!! It’s God of War’s 10th anniversary! Can you believe that it’s been ten years since Kratos’ Spartan wrath first ignited the PlayStation 2 library?! It’s hard to imagine PlayStation without this enduring and beloved character, and we couldn’t be happier to be part of the celebrations! Wait, did you miss the big news?
Happy Tenth Birthday, God of War! I can’t believe it has already been ten years (almost to this day) since Santa Monica Studio released Kratos out into the wild.
God of War defined the word “epic” like no other when it debuted on PS2 in 2005, introducing an iconic character to PlayStation fans worldwide — Kratos. Once the servant of Ares (who saved the Spartan General and his army from annihilation in battle), Kratos was tricked into murdering his family, forcing his metamorphosis into the “Ghost of Sparta.”

Champions! This month, we are celebrating the one-year anniversary of God of War: Ascension in such epic fashion that even the gods of Olympus are impressed. At Santa Monica Studio, the players come first in every decision we make. We have supported God of War: Ascension Multiplayer since its release on March 12, 2013, as a result of the unrelenting passion and everlasting “fire” you have poured into the battlefield since Day 1.

It’s been an exciting year for our show “Man at Arms” on the AWEme YouTube channel. Every other Monday, master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges viewers’ favorite weapons from video games, movies and TV. We quickly reached more than 1 million subscribers in less than a year thanks to the enthusiasm of our fans – many of whom requested Tony recreate Kratos’ weapon from God of War. Well, we heard you loud and clear.
