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

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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.

Fantastic interview Jeff! You did well. And at least Stig looks like he knows what he’s talking about.

Unlike our coach Andy Reid.

The_Apprentice said:

March 23rd, 2:07 pm

Jeff, Better than anything you have ever seen??!?
Just to give us insight, what was the best thing you’ve seen before the God of War 3 footage? :o

Agriel said:

March 23rd, 2:08 pm

like about 20 secs of that interview you cant hear anything besides the God of War 3 trailer in the back ground

katsuo7171 said:

March 23rd, 2:08 pm

um sorry for double posting(we really need an edit button on the blog) but is anybody besides me seeing comment-193619 on your internet title bar, its nothing serious but just disturbing.

cfashacar said:

guitain said:

March 23rd, 2:12 pm

Does Stig Asmussen have any scandinavian blood in ‘im? Because that would be pretty Blood and Gorish… (Pssst… Vikings! =D)

Even though noones as blood and gorish as the God of War himself… Ares!

kingmeazly said:

March 23rd, 2:16 pm

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.

Microshock said:

Chase167 said:

singhjeet29 said:

March 23rd, 2:24 pm

Chase167 said:

March 23rd, 2:25 pm

hife said:

March 23rd, 2:26 pm

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.

Slipping_halo said:

March 23rd, 2:27 pm
