oath that binds him to the god, Ares. Six months after being tricked into killing his wife and child, a
younger Kratos is sentenced to a life of madness with the Furies, caged in a titan sized prison for the
living damned. Fighting insanity, his will is tested to the limit as he seeks to break his bond and gain
the clarity to seek revenge on Ares for his part in the death of his family. Armed with double-chained
blades, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles
throughout his merciless quest for redemption.
