God of War: Ascension Prestigious Nominations



ARIEL LAWRENCE - joined the God of War team in 2003 and has been serving the Sony gods (and Kratos) ever since. As a producer, writer, and ‘resident Goddess of Lore’, she has devoted much of her energy and passion bringing the Ghost of Sparta’s story and the cinematic world of God of War to life. This is her second WGA nomination with Marianne Krawczyk.


MARIANNE KRAWCZYK - is a video game screenwriter, dialog editor and narrative consultant. Taking the knowledge and experience from her career in traditional storytelling, Marianne’s many awards include the 2007 BAFTA for Outstanding Story and Character for God of War 2. Clearly understanding the delicate relationship between story, as it relates to gameplay and production, Marianne has written a number of AAA game titles, including the critically and commercially acclaimed franchise, GOD OF WAR (1,2,3, ASCENSION, PSP 1, PSP 2 and Mobile), AREA 51, THE SOPRANOS: Road to Respect, PRINCE OF PERSIA: Forgotten Sands, SHANK, SHANK 2, FAR CRY 3, SKYLANDERS: Spyro’s Adventure, STAR TREK: The Video Game, as well as other, soon-to-be-announced titles for the Playstation 4, X-Box One and Wii U.

AIAS 2014 D.I.C.E Nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design

If we could somehow raise the decibel level to 108 in this article, we would.

Congrats to David, Daniel, Erik, Mario, Todd, Mike from our internal studio, and a huge thanks to all our fans blasting their 5.1 and 7.1 speakers with the chaos of Kratos' blades. We're honored to be nominated alongside Battlefield 4, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, and Grand Theft Auto V.
