God of War Developer Interview #1 – Game Director Stig Asmussen Answers Your Questions

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Mar 23, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Right before God of War III’s first playthrough was revealed to the media, we asked you: If you could ask the development team anything, what would it be? I then scribbled your queries onto a card and ran off to the event. We rolled camera, and since we’re now at GDC week, what better time to meet the team and get those questions answered?

So here we are, the first of five videos, beginning with a familiar face: Stig Asmussen, God of War III’s Game Director answers your questions, ranging from the game’s accessibility, influences, and what the power of the PS3 allows the team to do.

hey Jeff, may want to check the audio on the video… your audio gets interrupted with the trailer audio around the 5 min mark.

Amazing news, thanks Jeff your work is much appreciated, along with the God of War 3 staff, one thing i noticed though is that it is hard to hear you talk at 5 minutes into the video.

Seems like the people who get sneak peeks keep saying it is the best thing they have ever seen.
I haven’t seen anything to convince me of that yet, but the possibility sure does excite me.
