Sony Santa Monica’s lead concept artist Izzy Medrano has been talking about God Of War Ascension‘s Elephantaur concept, which began likfe as a re-skinned Minotaur from from God Of War 3.
Medrano says that the early concepts for the Elephant enemy originally surfaces in God Of War 3 as “a painting of a pale elephant coated in blood like a gladiator”. That got scrapped but the idea stuck

One of the early Ascension concept jobs was to, “re-skin the Minotaur from God of War 3″, the original plan being to simply create a different type of Minotaur. According to Medrano this involved various, “anthropomorphic bulls, yaks, bears, lizards, turtles and even a rhinoceros” However it was the old God Of war 3 idea that won. “In my heart I wanted to bring back that elephant”.
