God of War III Status Update

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by on Dec 10, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

On Tuesday, SCEA and a number of our publishing partners (2K, Capcom, EA, SEGA, and Square-Enix) filled a SoHo art gallery with many of the best games you’ll be playing in early 2010. Before things kicked off, Sony Santa Monica Studios’ Director of Development John Hight showed me a brand new scene from God of War III. We’ll be sharing a detailed look at that scene next month, but I thought you might want an update from the team on how the game is coming along.

We’ll be sharing more from our Q1 event soon, so keep an eye out!

Dude…. can’t wait for this game… March 2010 can’t come soon enough. I’ve played that E3 demo at least 20 times, it’s sick.. Love the evisceration.

Was this open to the public? If so, why wasn’t there some sort of announcement on here? There’s usually a million announcements for all the crap that takes place outside of the east coast, but not one for the rare eastern event?

i played the demo and it was [DELETED] awesome especially the execution animations of the minibosses and helios.I havent gotten passed the beginning the other 2 games but i think the demo loosened me up a bit to get it lol and ive also played the dantes inferno demo which seems alot like god of war.

Wish I could see this amazing preview.

Freakin PS3 web browser bites the big one.

pre-ordered the ultra limited edition – i want the good stuff!


+ Kamahl_rg on December 10th, 2009 at 8:49 pm said:

i cant wait :( and i still dont have a GOW 3 demo


+ John_Oval on December 10th, 2009 at 9:20 pm said:

Cannot wait for this one…at the same time though I do love how they arent showing too much of the game, since they dont want to ruin anything for us, and I respect that…

That being said…we do need SOME new info soon!


+ kaihopsn on December 10th, 2009 at 9:46 pm said:

Will this game run at 720p like the demo or will it run at 1080p on it’s final release?


+ Vex_Doppel on December 10th, 2009 at 9:47 pm said:

Hey Jeff, one question. Does GOW3 run in 1080p?


+ TailsTheCat on December 10th, 2009 at 9:58 pm said:

Been there, done that.
Mildly upgraded graphics.
No Jaffe, no sale.
God of War (1) is the best in the franchise.


+ etur0 on December 10th, 2009 at 10:49 pm said:

I wish you guys would have release the demo for gow3 in this month quore but oh well still got the MNR beta to play

also when will the demo come out


+ etur0 on December 10th, 2009 at 10:54 pm said:

@41 I wish they would add like that that tell you how many hours you have played the game like xfire do I know so games do but only the saves for ex I have 3 characters and I have created others has well but deleted them on Oblivion and it tells you how long you have played with that one chr but it doesn’t tell you how long you have played the game


+ vavires on December 10th, 2009 at 10:57 pm said:

Played the demo, and it didnt work out for me, its just more of the same thing, repetetive, graphics arent “wow”. I also played the demo for bayonetta wich actually was a lot better. Dantes inferno and darksiders looks better to, i think in the end GOW is just for the real fans of the series but will have a lot of competition from the other great games coming in the same genre with just that extra edge GOW 3 is failing at


+ jeremy23jacinto on December 10th, 2009 at 10:59 pm said:

I bought the first 2 god of war even god of war chain of olympus , to day i bought the god of war collection and Pre Ordered God of War III Ultimate Edition so does it make me a God of War fanatic or fanboy? the the game by the way

+ papamama123 on December 11th, 2009 at 1:25 am said:

thanks for the update jeff:) well i love this game alot. since God of War one, i have always wished they could add “caption” or “subtitles” during in game dialogue so that i could fully understand and appreciate the storyline, because i have “hearing problems”:( please let them know jeff…


+ IGriffoI on December 11th, 2009 at 1:28 am said:

Majorly looking forward to this game. Majorly.


+ station3fever on December 11th, 2009 at 1:33 am said:

+ FOS on December 11th, 2009 at 2:54 am said:

thanks for the reply i hope the reply will be longer next time XD


+ crowsticky1234 on December 11th, 2009 at 4:50 am said:

I think the next footage is very high-detailed with the new engine, so it’s going to have the same graphics as Uncharted 2. I think that’s what the footage going to look like. Right, Jeff.


+ that-acmilan-guy on December 11th, 2009 at 4:58 am said:

Cant wait for Jan for an update.


+ MakaiOokami on December 11th, 2009 at 5:14 am said:

I’m playing the God of War collection right now. Actually i came to the blog just to look for that tip video for the 15 minute fight scene trophy tip video because I’m at that part and I want to go and get that trophy before I finish the play through. :P


+ Sindred on December 11th, 2009 at 5:58 am said:

I’m buying the Special Edition to this game. There are some collector’s editions that are worth the extra you pay.

This happens when you care about more than just the action that takes place in the game, but also the world and characters created, so the Pandora Box will be mine.

Any chance we’ll see Kratos smile one day?


+ maddymad on December 11th, 2009 at 6:04 am said:

I’ve recently seen the video about Ngai speechless after seeing new video of GOW3, I can’t wait to find out what it is all about. I’m glad that I got my gow:collection to keep me occupied for the moment.

One question, so it’s sure that nothing to be seen about GOW3 in VGA tomorrow?


+ Vyper23 on December 11th, 2009 at 6:13 am said:

Hi. I have a question that i hope you can answer. So far, we’ve had demos for the 2 games considered to be rivals for GOW3, Bayonetta and Dante’s Inferno. In term of graphic, how does GOW3 compare to them?
I just tried dante’s inferno earlier and i couldnt help but find it too similar to GOW, such as the cartoon-like cutscenes and the gameplay/animation.
thanks :)


+ Fredendil on December 11th, 2009 at 7:28 am said:

I wished this was released on March 6th. It’d be so cool to have it as a birthday present! =D

Here’s hoping it isn’t released on March 31th *fingers crossed*


+ ima_hustla_19 on December 11th, 2009 at 8:26 am said:

Wish I could c the video but it dosent work on iPhones can’t wait 4 the game tho


+ Ma1nframe on December 11th, 2009 at 8:30 am said:


I had never played a GOW game before the Collection and I CAN’T PUT IT DOWN.

Im one trophy away from my first Platnum (Seeing Red, GOW 1)

this weekend, the platnum will be mine



+ Kchow23 on December 11th, 2009 at 8:59 am said:

Already pre-ordered my copy and I got the GOW collectiong, this march is going to be LEGEN…..DARY


+ EXTREME_rkmn on December 11th, 2009 at 9:04 am said:

SO STOKED!!!! Really excited to hear Sony is not pushing it from March due to FFXIII! I have my Ultimate Edition reserved and will have the game at midnight launch, I’m working on my platinum trophies currently for the collection.

I have a question about the GOWIII trailer: why was the dialogue switched around? Kratos used to say “I hope for nothing” when he busted out of the gang of undead, now the lines are switched around. With the way he spoke that line, the image presented, and the music, it was MUCH more impactful with the old ORIGINAL version of the trailer. I used to actually *cry* every time I heard that part. Now, it’s just not the same…. Why was it changed? I lost my 1080p version of the trailer and I would like to download that old version from PSN.

Speaking of 1080p, will the final game run 1080p? The demo show 720p on my TV. Not a big concern, as long as the soundtrack is spot on(which judging by the demo, it is!)

Can’t wait to hear the news next month!


+ MadmanEU on December 11th, 2009 at 9:41 am said:

No I do not want a status update. This interview was completely pointless. “Yes, the game still exists…and I can’t tell you anything new apart what we’ve been saying in every interview and every demo since E3, because we don’t want to release new scenes”.

Give me a break. ONE scene does not count as marketing. This game is going to unbelievably epic, and its going to TANK in sales because Santa Monica have been too damn secretive about the project. NO ONE KNOWS THIS GAME EXISTS outside of people like us.

Epic fail.

Also, you need to fix the videos. The videos automatically stop and reload when I move my mouse away from the video windows. Programming fail.

+ NOTTULYS on December 11th, 2009 at 12:25 pm said:

Man, I remember buying the first game before it got any big exposure….what a great random purchase. I already got the Ultimate Edition reserved.


+ blackmoses11 on December 11th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

JEFF….JEFF….JEFF!!!! Quick, man I’m desperate! I just bought the God of War Collection Today, just to get the chance to play that coveted E3 Demo of GOD of War III. Unfortunately my voucher code didn’t work! and the Consumer Services Number on the back is completely automated……totally no help! What do I do. After seeing this interview I absolutely need to play it. I tried taking it back to Gamestop but obviously they are not having anything to do with my problem. Can some one hook me up PLEASE!!!!!!
