God of War: Ascension is an American hack and slash video game that was developed by SCE Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The video game was released on March 12, 2013. Due to rating issues in Germany the European release had to be censored. As a result violence was toned down.


European censorship[]

  • The corpse elevator puzzle was modified for the European release. In the uncensored version if the corpse's arms get ripped off blood will shoot out of his arm. In the European version the blood was digitally removed.
  • The scene that shows Kratos stopping on Pollux's head was modified for the European release. In the European version the camera zooms in on Kratos, as a result you can no longer see Kratos stopping on Pollux's head. But to some gamers, it gives them the impression of something that is actually even worse.

Where to find it uncensored[]

The North American version and the Japanese version are completely uncensored.
