God of War: Unearthing the Legend for the Ultimate Fan!

Ken Chan's Avatar + Posted by Ken Chan on Jan 15, 2010 // Product Manager, SCEA

The God of War Ultimate Fan Contest is off to an amazing start! We’ve seen anything from our fans showing off their Kratos tattoo, best of GOW moments with Lego animated films, to just simple video submissions of why they thought Kratos was so bad a$$!!!

To further fuel your interest and excitement in having your fan video submission and name forever immortalized within God of War III Ultimate Edition, here’s a sneak peek at the official documentary God of War: Unearthing the Legend.

Hosted by American film/stage actor and historic lecturer, Peter Weller (RoboCop, Engineering an Empire) God of War: Unearthing the Legend takes the viewer through an epic journey of conquest, destiny and revenge as the detailed events of Kratos is explored and dissected by key members of the development team, Greek historians & professors.

So if you haven’t done so, be sure to take advantage of your three-day Martin Luther King weekend and get your Ultimate Fan video filmed and submitted.

The Ultimate Fan Contest officially ends on Saturday, January 23 and this will be your only chance to be forever immortalized within the God of War franchise (…and getting a free copy of God of War III Ultimate Edition signed by Santa Monica Studios doesn’t hurt either)!

Nice.

I already have my GoW3 Ultimate Edition on pre-order; I don’t think I’ve ever anticipated a game as much as GoW3.

Ken as you are here, sorry it’s slightly off topic. I’m not asking you to state the why (should the answer be yes) but are the rumours stemming from Hip Hop Gamer true and we are no longer getting to see the new GoW3 trailer that was shown behind closed doors in December this month?

Just asking for some honesty, the wait for the game is bad enough without getting our hopes up for new footage. Thanks in advance.

    Definitely going to be epic! Would even suggest watching it before playing GOW3. The documentary will break down the story elements of GOW I and II.

Hey Ken, I had thought about watching it before playing GOW3 but is there anything in the documentary that may act as a spoiler for GOW3 in any way?

You picked a cool host for the documentary!
I’ll probably keep thinking of Kratos vs. Robocop scenarios though after I’ve watched it. ;-)

@Ken Chan

I just want to ask you have you or anyone from the sony blog gone over to the god of war site yet? Right now there are over 250-320 signatures and counting for the footage that we were suppose to see next week. I think its enough for a response. The fans are really hungry but I will leave that for you to see when you go to the community section of the
page. Please show us the footage that you all saw last month. Thank you

Stig must have seen Weller on “Rome: Engineering an Empire.” Guess he’s got a masters degree in renaissance art and now is an ad hoc professor at the university of syracuse? Thats awesome. Made some money making movies and then went back to school to learn about something he was interested in… but couldn’t make nearly as much money with. haha

Looks awesome! I will definitely be getting the Ultimate edition, I also just saw the Ultimate trilogy editon that they will get in EU, how come they get more content than us? I dont care so much about the collection because i already have it, but i do want all 3 skins and the postcards!

+ angelspawn77 on January 15th, 2010 at 4:40 pm said:

Also, I really hope the new GOW3 footage will be shown next week, ive been waiting since i first heard about it last month and now that its finally here Id hate for the rug to be pulled out from under us fans just as the time has come when the new footage should be shown. Please show it guys.

+ TrueFFVIIFan on January 15th, 2010 at 4:55 pm said:

So, no subtitle for this documentary video? If that is the case, then does that you refuse to have it subtitled in the game as well? Or will there be an optional subtitle? GoW series is well-known for being [DELETED] when it comes to subtitle.
