Sony today announced a new God of War game for the PSP. God of War: Ghost of Sparta is being developed by Ready at Dawn, the development company behind God of War: Chains of Olympus. It's scheduled for release "Later this year."
"Excitement for the God of War franchise is at an all-time high and we're thrilled to continue that momentum with God of War: Ghost of Sparta," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA in a statement. "This new adventure will showcase Kratos on PSP like never before in an experience that fans and newcomers can enjoy on the go, anytime, anywhere."
God of War: Ghost of Sparta is a single-player game that takes place after the first God of War ends. It tells the story of Kratos' ascension to power as the God of War. In his quest to rid himself of the nightmares that haunt him, Kratos embarks on a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds, and answer questions about his dark past, including the origin of his tattoo, his scar and the story behind his family. The game will also have a new weapon system, new magical powers, weapons and navigational abilities, many more enemies on screen, and a greater number of boss encounters.
The game is being touted as having 25 percent more gameplay than the previous PSP GOW game. Check out the first few screens in our gallery, right here.
