I just had a peek at the latest God of War 3 Trailer released yesterday. Just to emphasize, the new trailer came almost a year later. I was slightly disappointed with the short trailer, precisely because it was so short… just above one & half minutes.
The other thing was I was expecting a sequential story type trailer similar to the 3 minute Epic scale trailer shown last February. This trailer is more like a collection of scenes … but the scenes are awesome.
We have our first video look at Hades boss battle with Kratos. The other great stuff is the the fight of Kratos vs Leviathan, the water-crab-horse on Gaia’s arm.
Watch the Trailer below and you can be sure you want to get God of War 3 so bad, you will want to break-in Santa Monica studio armed with the Blades of Chaos replicas. Just letting my imagination go wild.
Cancel all your duties.
Turn off all your obligations.
Say “Shut Up” to your TV and PC.
Take a sick leave.
Because… come March 16th… it will be just you and your PS3. Chaos will reign. SCEA announced that God of War 3 release date is set to 16th of March.
With God of War 3 (gow3) having a run-time between 12-20 hours depending on your personal expertise, you will need some time away from your real life and Get a Greek Life. Have you got a chance to pre-order the game? If not, here’s your chance to get God of War 3.
When this fansite was launched, I had used God of War 4 as a prank. Now, it seems that the joke is on me. SCEA Director of Product Development John Hight recently spoke with Gamervision about the possibilities of future God of Wars.
God of War 3 will be the end of the trilogy. I have no idea how they are going to make God of War 4, what the story will be about and what time period from Kratos’ life they will take up. I am sure that there will be mixed reactions with some fans rejoicing that they will be able to do more hacking-n-slashing… and some fans thinking that it will be too much of a good thing.
The biggest concern that I have is of the story. This is also addressed by John: “This is not the end of God of War. This is definitely the end of the trilogy, but we are going to continue to do God of War games. We are going to be careful about what we do. We are the keepers of the franchise and we don’t want to see it ruined or polluted.”
I am guessing that “God of War 4” will be a PSP version. What do you say? Comment below.
You will remember that SCEA had done a survey of what fans would want in a God of War 3 Collector’s Edition. Most, fans opting for seeing God of War 1 & 2 on PS3. Ofcourse, we know that SCEA listened, and listened well.
Finally, the God of War III: Ultimate Edition has been announced! Here are the quick facts:
• High-End Sculpted Replica of Pandora’s Box
• Limited-Edition God of War Art Book featuring exclusive art, content and interviews
Exclusive Digital Content (Available via PlayStation Network voucher codes on day of launch)
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges
• Premium Kratos Skin – Dominus
• God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary – a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise
• God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game (mp3 digital download).
• God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (mp3 digital download).
You can preview God of War III: Ultimate Edition on Amazon.
Let me know what you think. The release date is the same as GoW3 release date.
Finally, John Hight has some great news for God of War fans. The Director of Product Development revealed that the God of War III E3 Demo will now be included with the God of War Collection. Remember, that SCEA didn’t want to include the Demo as it wasn’t up-to-standards yet.
They seem to have done a rethink, based on the general response of fans. You can download the Demo over the PSN, however there is a catch. It will be available only for those who purchase the God of War Collection through a voucher code.
Still, its a pretty good incentive for those who were on the fence, in deciding to buy the God of War Collection. To remind you, the Collection has both God of War games at 720p and 60fps.
