Kratos Faces the Challenge of the Furies in 'God of War: Ascension'

We're only six months away from the release of Sony Santa Monica's God of War: Ascension, and it's at about this time that we'll start seeing a steady drip of info about the the upcoming prequel. Available for your viewing pleasure: a first look at one of the Furies who'll being trying to eviscerate the Ghost of Sparta, Megaera.

Old Meg is actually one of the named Furies of Greek myth, an avenger of infidelity and crime. While you would never want to mess with one of the Furies in the Greeks' stories, I'm pretty sure she was never conceived as some kind of armored murder harpy, but what are you gonna do?

God of War: Ascension will continue putting its own spin on Greek mythology when it's released for the PS3 on March 12th, 2013.
