God of War: Ghost of Sparta “Origins” Trailer + Bonus

Ken Chan's Avatar + Posted by Ken Chan on Oct 07, 2010 // Product Manager, SCEA

Spartan Army! The wait for God of War: Ghost of Sparta is almost over. We are less than four weeks away from launch, and we truly saved our best for the very last. Check out our latest “Origins” trailer as it will provide a glimpse of Kratos’s endless nightmares that continues to haunt him. Be sure to watch the entire trailer all the way through as there’s a surprise ending message.


(In case you missed the surprise message at the end, read on!)

For a limited time ONLY, all Specially Marked Boxes of God of War: Ghost of Sparta will include an exclusive downloadable voucher for the Deimos Skin for God of War III.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta -- Exclusive pre-order Deimos skin

God of War: Ghost of Sparta -- Exclusive pre-order Deimos skin

Re-live the God of War III experience like never before as you get to play as Kratos’s brother Deimos. With enhanced combat damage and the ability to receive 4x the amount of Health, Magic and God Orbs, you are given the ultimate rage-fueled Spartan.

For those that are planning to get the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack, don’t worry. All the limited two-tone Entertainment Packs will include the downloadable voucher for the Deimos Skin PSPgo owners, similar to the Ultimate Pre-Order bundle, you will be granted with the Deimos Skin during the limited purchase window through the PS Store from November 2nd to November 9th.

So if you haven’t pre-ordered, be sure to do it soon as both the Six-Item Pre-Order Bundle and Deimos Skin are available for only a limited time!

I was wondering when they’d bring back Kratos’ brother! He was mentioned in the original God of War but never again. When the Collection was released and they made a trophy for SPECIFICALLY watching that one video, I knew he was going play a big role some time in the future. Kinda wishing he’d have the demon wings though ;)

Also I’m having a bit of a problem on the demo for this, whenever I start it up my psp resets for some strange reason. Anything I can do to fix it?

This is great, finally they bring back his brother! This could mean a new God of War for PS3 with Deimos as lead character (well at least i hope to…it all depends on Ghost of Sparta’s ending) Still awesome news!

@Ken

Yeah, did it once after trying the demo over and over again but the problem was still there. Did it again a little while ago using the PS3 and now it’s fine…. must’ve had something to do with using Media Go

Wow.
Epic isn’t enough to describe this.
More like Super Epic!

This actually looks to have an even more emotional/incredible/engaging storyline than the others, and that’s saying something.

I already preordered. I can’t wait to pick it up.

Every time I hear, “Did you think I would forget?” I get shivers down my spine! Dare I say it…? This is shaping up better than God of War III IMO! And I adore GoW3!! I can’t wait to see how Deimos’ story plays out. A day-one buy for me! Thanks for the amazing trailer and thanks for making the the rest of this month seem that much longer.

Hey, Ken. A few weeks ago you said we would be getting some Playstation Plus exclusive God Of War avatars. Any word on those, a release date, or if they are still coming? I’d love to have one of Kratos’s brother(Which, by the way, looks epic as crap!). That would be epic!

Ha Nice reveal Ken! Well the cats outta the bag and Kratos brother is finally shown…. and he doesnt look to happy to see Kratos.

“We’ve been holding him in our pockets”

I really wish the original plan for that character had actually happened. It’s very clear that plot point went on the cutting room floor and someone pulled it out a couple months ago.

Having different creative directors on each game has hurt the story arc of the franchise greatly, so many changes. The first game had the best story and the others are nothing like it.

*rant about your downloadable pricing stratagy* Again I’m not paying $40 to download this to my Go. For the love of god, please stop overcharging for downloadable PSP games.

PS Ken: How does importing from the US count as “We’ve got you covered”?


36

+ krae_man on October 7th, 2010 at 11:22 am said:

Especially considering you can only have one PSN account tied to your PSP at a time and the content is probably US PSN only.

PLEASE READ THIS KEN!!!!!!!

What if I can’t afford a PSP right now? I absolutely love the GoW franchise and it kills me that I wont be able to play Ghost of Sparta right away, but does that mean I wont be able to get the Deimos skin, or the Kratos avatar for my PSN acount until I buy a PSP?

Hi Ken, thanks for replying to so many people! I was hoping you could clarify how to obtain the Deimos skin.

I pre-ordered Ghost of Sparta on UMD through Amazon.com. Is the Deimos skin available to all pre-orders from Amazon as well? Or do we have to hunt down specially-marked packages in stores?

    + Ken Chan on October 7th, 2010 at 12:27 pm said:

    Not a problem. The Deimos voucher is included in all the initial orders for GOW Ghost of Sparta. If you pre-ordered through Amazon, you’re essentially guaranteed to receive the specially marked packages with the Deimos voucher. Glad you asked :)

In God of War III…Zeus did say to Gaia that she “Should have chose the other one.” I’ll assume that is either Deimos or the son that Prometheus predicts will overthrow Zeus…the son of Thetis and Zeus…lol which never happens in Greek myth cause he figures it out and backs off

Very much looking forward to this game and getting a chance to play as Deimos will most certainly get me to go back (after finishing Ghost of Sparta… and playing a lot of GT5) and re-play GOW3… can’t wait to see just how personal this game is going to get for Kratos!
