Sony Santa Monica detailed one of big bads in God of War: Ascension today. The latest "Unchained" developer diary introduces the succubus Empusa.
In Greek mythology, Empusa was a demigoddess and the daughter of Hecate. She seduced young men and feasted on their blood. In later myths, an empusa was a monster that attacked travelers.
In Ascension, empusae appear to be common enemies or at best mini-bosses. They have long, spiked limbs and fiery hair. The end of the diary shows Kratos impaling one on its own spike.
Ascension will launch on March 12th in North America and spread to Europe and Australia later that week.
