God of War III Vengeance Trailer

Stig Asmussen's Avatar + Posted by Stig Asmussen on Feb 12, 2010 // Game Director, God of War III

Just wanted to tell everyone how excited we are at SCEA Santa Monica Studio to release this new trailer for God of War III. Considering it has been almost a year since we have put out a new video, this is a really special time for us and we hope everyone enjoys it!

Just to give a little perspective on what we were going for with this trailer, we really wanted to sell the high action of the game and put together snippets of several of the big moments. Everything is pulled straight from the game – there is no trickery, etc. Everything is running in “real time.” There are no “cinematic” sequences here, meaning this is all gameplay.

Towards the end of the trailer we reveal some of the moments from our January media event. If you look closely you can see Kratos on the arm of Gaia fighting against the “Leviathan” water creature, giving a sneak peek of the scale in our game. I am very proud of the work our team has done and how this trailer showcases it. The final game has a ton more that is not shown here and I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks about it!

Man, the scale of this game is just… epic. That really is THE word to describe the God of War series, isn’t it?

Jaffe created him. Balrog made him a legend, and I can already tell Stig has immortalized Kratos in gaming history. Props to you and all the hard working people at Santa Monica Studios!

Great work Mr. Stig Asmussen and the Santa Monica crew. I got to say that this is an epic trailer. This trailer makes it seem like I am watching a PS4 title. You all have put a new meaning on pushing the limits. Keep up the awesome work.

Some say he actually works for Sony in his spare time, and he likes to deliver epic HD trailers of Spartan warriors who want to kill the gods. All we know is… he’s called The Stig!

jaw drop to floor….pick it up
I just want to thank you guys with my $100 for the purchase of the Ultimate Edition :)
Have a few questions.

1)Will this video be up on the PSN store in Full HD?
2)Will there be new God of War avatars for the PSN?
3)Will you unlock content for home or theme for you PS3 by playing the game?
4)Should I go into hibernation now or man up and wait for the release of the game?

+ BlooodyCow on February 12th, 2010 at 2:13 am said:

I forgot something
The music for the video, will it be on the Blood and Metal soundtrack or was it created just for this trailer? I really like it :)

Also, thank you guys for selecting Killswitch Engage to be one of the band on the soundtrack. Huge KSE fan.

WTF!!! I can’t believe I can’t watch this on my PS3 browser!! I’ll have to go check youtube to see if I can find a lame version there. I want to see this trailer SOO bad. I was pretty disappointed with the GTTV trailer. I had to sit through 30 minutes of a 360 game I couldn’t care less about and commercials to see a trailer for GoW3 that seemed to go out of it’s way to not show me much at all.

For anyone whose seen it, is this trailer better than the lame GT trailer?

+ kdiep on February 12th, 2010 at 3:00 am said:

Oh man! Are you serious Stig? All in-game? That “Leviathan” water creature is the sickest “character” I’ve ever seen in a game! NICE JOB!

Oh man I’m so happy my two oh so kind brothers pre-ordered (payed in full) the Ultimate Edition for my birthday :D. As a student I’m broke and limited on time but for this game I’ll freakin make some time. SICK! Please put this up on PS Store! I’d love to have this trailer on my PS3.
