God of War III Out Today!

Anthony Caiazzo's Avatar + Posted by Anthony Caiazzo on Mar 16, 2010 // Senior Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Fellow Spartans!

The wait is finally over! CHAOS has been unleashed nationwide as the highly anticipated God of War III releases on store shelves today. If you didn’t make it to the midnight launch events last night, make sure to call your store and get your copy fast. God of War III is set to take to the stage as the biggest entertainment launch event in PlayStation 3 history and will be remembered as one of the best action adventure titles of 2010. Now is your chance to take down the Gods of Olympus by wreaking havoc and spreading chaos through all of civilization. I’d like to especially thank our Santa Monica Studios for all their time, hard work, and energy in delivering this award winning video game. I’d also like to give a big thank you to all the fans who have stayed loyal throughout Kratos’ journey and continued to support all things God of War.

In celebration of today’s launch, I’d like to share with you our new trailer called “Chaos,” featuring kick-ass footage from the game.

In the End, There Will Be Only Chaos….

//Add Your Own

got mine today and played thru the first hour or so. I love the first 2 games and the first level in this one was f’ing sick but some of the dialog is really really cheesey. seriously almost cringe worthy. and why did they change athena’s voice? i still have a long way to go in the story though so let’s see how it all pans out

This week has been nothing but God Of War for me. I mean I have played so may great games in the past few months just trying to get em out of the way just so that I won’t be disturbed play GoW3. Heavy Rain Bad Co.2 Borderlands Bioshock 2 AC2 and not to mention the gaming marathon I’m having with the GoW Collection

I got home from work today to find my package from Amazon.com. Excited, I opened it up and saw my large Ultimate Edition box. Slowly opening it I found a lonely artbook inside the Pandora’s box replica. THERE WAS NO GAME. I removed the bottom panel and…more NOTHING. The rage of Kratos flowed through me. I called Amazon and they informed me that the best they would be able to do is have me send it back for a refund.

The worst part is I had preordered this way back in October. God damnit.

About my previous comment, there were supposed to be Cerberus (?) there.
I just restarted and it was alright.

But I’m actually happy I played it from the start again, I missed a Gorgon Eye my first time through lol.
But I gotta go play Hockey now, just as I started getting somewhere haha, that’s life for you!

And anyone on the fence about buying this game: BUY IT.
It is almost like history in the making with the technical showcase that is God of War 3. The scale of this game is just, unreal (they didn’t lie when they said it’s borderline CG Movie quality).

Can we get some avatars?! And dynamic themes that are actually cool


113

+ Tinaray on March 16th, 2010 at 5:55 pm said:

I don’t know if it’s because the code only works once and was therefore invalidated when I entered it while the site wasn’t loading properly or if it’s just broken, but my soundtrack code from the special edition does not work. Please provide a fix. I didn’t care about the rest of the stuff in that special edition. All I wanted was the music, so please fix this.

As a GOW fan I’m so excited, but it sucks that I won’t be able to play GOW 3 because of some issues. But whenever I get my hands on it, i know it will be amazing. Congrats Sony Santa Monica.

I just finished this game, and wow, amazing…until the end. This is easily the most disappointing, and frustrating endings to a game in many many years. Way to fail Stig, way to fail. Looks like we really did need Jaffe and Barlog back.

Anyone having a problem downloading the soundtrack? I got the ultimate edition and put in the code. The blood and metal downloaded fine, but i had to restart my download of the OST a couple times because it kept stopping. Eventually it downloaded, but now it’s not authorizing me to unzip the file! What’s worse, I can’t redownload because it says my code has already been used! Is there anything I can do to fix this?


123

+ eddieMX07 on March 16th, 2010 at 8:14 pm said:

wow this game is awesome… This was totally worth the the $100.. yeah i got the ultimate edition and the Ultimate Guide from Gamestop at midnight. But sucks cuz tomorrow I have to return there since they forgot to give me the Phantom of Chaos code. The guy said it was inside the game. He was wrong. This is like when they forgot the give me the preorder bonus for Bioshock 2 last month.

anyone else having problems with the ultimate edition dlc?

+ eddieMX07 on March 16th, 2010 at 8:56 pm said:

wow this sucks… I just entered the code for the soundtracks and after waiting for about 5 minutes I got this standard message … “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage”. Guess I’m gonna try again, hopefully this time it will work.

+ fachisimo on March 16th, 2010 at 8:59 pm said:

I’ve got a question:
Why don’t you release an .pdf alternative boxart for people dislike the cover, just like you did it on Heavy Rain?
It’s a shame that you didn’t do it
I hope will you do

+ eddieMX07 on March 16th, 2010 at 9:03 pm said:

That’s a good idea #124. I approve and also hope it happends

Hey so I tried to download the music and the page didn’t load after I put the code in so I reloaded it and put the code in again, but then it said it has already been redeemed…. kinda frustrated. Can you guys help at all? Or am I just basically s*** out of luck?

Picked up my Ultimate Edition this morning from Best Buy… Nearly had to steal the thing to get it out of the store! The lady claimed that I had cancelled my preorder… even though I was the first in line with my reciept… She proceeded to tell me they made a mistake in the computer and only had enough copies for those that preordered…. To say the least, I walked out the store with my Collectors Edition in hand… and I was not going to take no for an answer.

So anyways, been playing it all day… and it is an amazing game! I am shocked that crap like Mass Effect 2 scored higher in Metacritic, when it is clearly not as great… but whatever. GOW3 is the best PS3 game this year. I love it! Great job Santa Monica Studios!

For some reason I thought the sculpture was made from carved wood, and not chinese plastic… but whatever. It still looks cool.

This game is very awesome! Can’t wait to finish it.
On a side note: Had a little issue with downloading the soundtracks. I was able to download the GOW trilogy soundtrack but not the Blood and Metal soundtrack. I would like to listen to that soundtrack asap.

I believe the Gamestop site said the Phantom of Chaos would be unlocked once you complete the game.

+ The3D-Artist on March 16th, 2010 at 10:57 pm said:

I too tried to use my code at the site per the pamphlet in the Ultimate Edition and got a Error 503 message after hitting submit. I hope the code will still be valid or if not, that Sony offers it to everyone via PSN (it should have been on PSN to begin with) free of charge due to the problems faced.

The game itself is great and the Unearthing the Legend video (two vids but really one) were sweet. I would like my music though if that’s at all possible. I did email the webmaster about it but I don’t expect that to have any bearing on my codes – just on getting the site fixed. Please – PLEASE – put the soundtracks on PSN for those of us who got screwed.

I bought the game when it came out and I was playing the first part and the sound kept skipping and then when I tried to start over it just froze on me it seems to do it at the beginning of a new level. don’t get me wrong I love this game it is freaking amazing so i checked on the internet and it seems that there are other people having the same problem both slims and fatties so i don’t think its a hardware thing ill just get a new copy today hope that would fix the problem but just bringing this too the light so this won’t shadow the game because it is a really good game great job nothing less expected from santa monica studios, sony and the ps3.

oh my god….god of war 3 overload, had to take a break to catch my breath. This game, there’s no words to describe how awesome it really is, great job Stig and everyone who was involved in creating this masterpiece.

Im having serious problems with the game that render it unplayable almost from the beginning: Starting from the second time you fight Poseidon, the sounds overlap, the music turns into a loop, and then the game freezes. Eventually the problem crashes my PS3 (slim, 120Gb), and makes it go weird even after I restart the system. I dont have this problem with any other game, this is the first time and it always happens with God of War 3. I see other people report similar problems around the web. Just to let you know, because really I can’t play this game right now.

+ kolobear on March 17th, 2010 at 9:08 am said:

Played through the (roughly) first 2 hours of the game last night. I really like the environments so far. There is so much going on in each area. There is a good sense that you are in the middle of a war zone while playing. The art design, the lighting, the colors, the sound – it’s all good.

IMO – a must-have game for all PS3 owners 16 and older.

I got the game yesterday. Played just a little bit of it—and love the new feature—especailly the graphics display.
Like all of God of War series—it has the the same begining…..
First you fight,….then you lose all of your abilites,….and then regain all of it back….and then the extra stuff later on.
If there is another God of War or a spin-off,…I hope they make it differently
