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.
Our previous post reported speculation brewing about GoW1 and GoW2 on PS3 Bluray disks. Sony has now confirmed that both game titles will be now available on the Playstation 3. Fans can replay both God of War 1 & 2 in the awesomeness of PS3 at a price of $39.99.
Sony had once said Backward Compatibility on PS3 will no longer be supported, so these titles seem to have been ported onto the PS3. It all started when SCEA asked fans to fill in a survey of what they would like in the Collector’s Edition and a lot of fans wanted GoW1 & 2. Porting a game to a different console is no easy work and its commendable that they were able to do it so quickly. The games are remastered, with trophies and run at 720p
However, as speculated God of War 3 demo wont come with the God of War Collection. Product Development Director for the SCEA, John Hight said to IGN in an interview that the God of War 3 Demo will take time and didn’t want it to hinder the release of the God of War Collection.
The other bummer is that the God of War Collection wont release in Europe this year. No further information was revealed by SCEE on the delay.
Believe it or not, God of War 3 is already FOUR years in the making. While most of SCEA team was giving the finishing touches to God of War 2 in March 2005, couple of developers had already started work on creating the Engine for GOW3.
The game will be running at 1080 pixel High Definition resolution. And developers intend to extract every single bit of gaming prowess that is dormant under the PS3’s hood.
It has been discussed, though not confirmed if God of War 3 will have a separate multiplayer capability.
SQUARE-SQUARE-TRIANGLE is alive and kicking! Kratos’ Plume of Prometheus, the most famous combo in the Playstation world will be continued.
Kratos will have the ability to interact with the environment. In previous versions of God of War, he was able to interact only with orb chests, doors, elevator cranks. This time, Kratos can use one enemy against other, cross chasms using harpies and also use enemies to unravel puzzles.
The scale of the game will be Titanic literally. If you haven’t yet checked the third trailer of the God of War 3, do so now. Kratos fights off a centaur, then undead skeletons and finally a Cyclops in a forest. What’s new? You may think. The scariest part is while fighting the Cyclops, the earth starts shifting and Kratos grabs a Harpie’s legs and flies to safety. Then you realize that the forest within which you were fighting was Gaia’s back??!!! OMFG!!!
