God of War III Ultimate Edition

SCEA and Santa Monica Studios are thrilled to announce the first Ultimate Edition for God of War. Earlier this year, we polled a number of fans on what would make an awesome collector’s edition for God of War. Well, we took your advice and created something epic and filled it with premium collectible and exclusive digital content.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition will feature the following:

Exclusive Collectibles
• 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).

But it keeps getting better for the fans. Those that pre-order God of War III at select retailers will receive a voucher code for first access to download the God of War III E3 2009 Demo starting today, plus you will receive an exclusive downloadable skin from the following retailers: Amazon, GameCrazy and GameStop.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

And as a special thank you to our Spartan Army members who signed up on www.GodofWar.com, we are sending out a direct email today with one free voucher code to randomly selected fans. So, please make sure you check your email inbox over the weekend to see if you are one of the lucky ones to receive a voucher code allowing you to download this demo instantly from PlayStation Network! Remember, it’s a random selection and only a limited amount of vouchers are being sent out, so good luck.

Could you at least reply to my posts, even if you don’t know the answers?
You keep answering other people’s questions, but you keep ignoring mine.

Yes! Finally you guys announce some type of special edition for GOWIII. Idk why, but I just wouldn’t feel right buying the ‘regular’ edition for such an epic game.

Just to double check though: Is this the only way to get the Combat Arena containing an exclusive map and 7 challenges? They won’t be unlockable in-game?

    Correct, the Combat Arena is exclusive to the UE. Not unlockable in-game

I just came from my Local GameStop and they didn’t have God of War III even registered on their system!
They neither had the Demo and the exclusive downloadable skin!

I just preordered it at my Gamestop but they didn’t have any vouchers yet. They said they’d either email or call me but they don’t have my email address and I doubt they’ll call.

Maybe I’ll hunt around for it or something. :(

Still really looking forward to the game and to the GoW I and II enhanced versions.

I know you have said the boxart shown in the pic is not final but as far as the boxart goes, I love the steelbook cases. They look amazing. I think the UE should at least have something different than the standard edition.

Well I pre ordered this from my local Gamestop and was told after i paid the money they didnt have anymore codes. Supposedly all the codes they got went to the ones who had preordered the regular edition of the game. So Im stuck with no code and unable to play the demo unless GS get more codes in soon. I really hate going to gamestop but it is the only choice around here.

+ SpyDudeFX on October 30th, 2009 at 4:02 pm said:

If you ordered on Amazon before today, you will still get the code but it can take up to 10 business days. Amazon always applies new promotions retroactively to existing pre-orders, so you never have to cancel and re-order.


239

+ madmanone on October 30th, 2009 at 4:13 pm said:

Pre-ordered the regular version at GameStop. Would love the Ultimate Edition, but, too expensive. I’m downloading the demo, now!

+ avi_66 on October 30th, 2009 at 4:14 pm said:

Is it true that Amazon gives out the codes only after 10 days after placing the order? Then whats the point of saying it will available starting today? Can anyone clarify


241

+ smokey_vols on October 30th, 2009 at 4:21 pm said:

Can we get a different name for it? Something besides Ultimate? I read that the boxart wasn’t final also, could we get something cooler than Kratos’s eye, maybe him covered in blood climbing Mount Olypus or something to that nature. Everything else is awsome though, i’m sold.

+ BaronBrain on October 30th, 2009 at 4:31 pm said:

Ken Chan…

Is there a reason you are only tackling the “super-easy” questions or “golly gee wow!” posts which require no real answers? I gave up counting how often you reposted “Amazon’s Pre-Order link for UE is available now” or “GameStop supports both online and in-store pre-order”.

Okay… I get it. The marketing team needs to sell a product to us. But it’s obvious consumers with the hard questions and/or concerns about this set (myself notwitstanding, #128) are being ignored, and the responses which are given are as insubstantial as this set. We deserve the same courtesy to have our hard questions addressed; if you’re not able to do so, kindly bring on someone who is.

On the surface this looks like a terrific set, and I hate to say that it appears to be a smoke & mirrors act. I truly do love the box and artbook, and I think the extras are wonderful — but these should be tangible items available in the packaging and NEVER all as DLs. We’re being asked to pay the same $100+ price as other top-tier Deluxe Editions, only we’re receiving a sheet of paper with printed codes on it instead of a BD Bonus Disc and proper CD-based OSTs.

How can some of you be okay with this trend?

Been playing the demo since earlier today, I LOVE THE E3 DEMO!!! Excellent job showing off the new fighting mechanics!!! The ram, and controlling the cyclops are both awesome, love the harpy jump as well! Will the final game be in 1080p? The demo showed 720p, not a big deal, just curious. For those curious, I got my demo voucher from work(gamestop) today but the UE was not up for pre-order when I left at 2. It better be there tomorrow, I have my GoW 1&2 for PS3 paid off, time to get working on that collector’s edition!

+ AriesWarlock on October 30th, 2009 at 4:45 pm said:

Honestly, I am not eager by this ultimate edition. Three soundtracks? The first one was offered for free some years ago, and it’s easy to find around.
I feel an Athena’s blade or a Kratos figure would have been cooler than the box…. unless there’s very cool things inside the box?


246

+ EXTREME_rkmn on October 30th, 2009 at 4:49 pm said:

@BaronBrain

Really? The game is $60 right? I mean, as a COLLECTOR’S EDITION, I would pay the extra $40 JUST for the art book and Pandora’s Box. Because I love God of War. If you dont want to pay $100 then get over it. The set is worth it to any true fan of the game dude. I like that I don’t have to worry about a stupid CD, I download the music and back them up to an external and I guess maybe on to a CD. But that is me personally. I’ll be the guy first in line for the midnight launch and taking a week’s vacation to play the game, because I’m a nerd, and a true God of War fan.
