God of War Developer Interview #4 – Lead Programmer Vassily Filippov Answers Your Questions

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

We know you’ve got questions about God of War III – the developers have answers. All during this year’s GDC, we’ve been introducing you to the game’s devs, as they explain their contribution to the GoWIII, and what’s going to make the game great. Today, things take a turn for the technical, as Lead Programmer Vassily Filippov talks about how much bigger God of War III is than its predecessors, the power of PS3’s SPUs, and how PS3 Kratos couldn’t even fit on a PS2.

Tomorrow we wrap up our God of War III developer series with the most exciting interview yet – the game’s Combat Director. You won’t want to miss this one!

Is it just me, or does the God of War 3 development team interviewed so far all exude a sort of… “badass-ness”? They all seem like they’d kick your arse if you said something like “GOW series sucks” or something. Glad to know these guys are making this game. :P

Kotaku reported the leaked GOW3 footage. Ive just watched it and well it looks like GOW2. Not really a bad thing i might ad, its hard to tell from the footage what it really looks like in HD

HEY JEFF! in your last post on interview 3 you said “Every GoW game has had new weapons besides the Blades of Chaos, and God of War III will be no different. FIND OUT MORE ON FRIDAY!”
does that mean we can expect a new trailer or gameplay? or an interview?

ZeroPm said:

March 26th, 12:47 pm

God of War’s is so epic I tried to use a thesaurus to find a better word but I could not!

I love the pull out shot when you realize oh wait you are on a Giant Titan!

Can not wait for this game, think Im going to play God of War 1 and 2 again.

lcmnick said:

Vassily looks like a guy who knows completely what he’s talking about.

Drackir said:

March 26th, 1:05 pm

So just to be clear, does Kratos not fit on a PS2 DISC or in the PS2 MEMORY. Cause I’m pretty sure someone said he didn’t fit on a PS2 disk which is like 9GB…so if Kratos alone takes up more than 9GB of data on a 50GB blu-ray, where are they going to put the rest of the stuff? :P

@ 32

It’s like a year away from release and a Sony game, of course it will have trophies.

The leaked gameplay footage looked bad ass, even if it was a crappy vid. With how much time is left in development the final project will be nothing short of spectacular.

Looking forward to the final interview!

Great job on all the interviews lately PS Blog and Jeff! Keep that NEW info rollin’.

That’s great to hear they’re rendering Kratos in more detail using the power of the PS3! Hopefully the gameplay and scenes combined with everything else makes for an awesome fun and detailed graphic game.

ADR143 said:

MistaTricksta said:

March 26th, 3:11 pm

smokey_vols said:

March 26th, 3:11 pm

If the combat designer pumps you up for the game, then this guy must put you to sleep lol.

lebron_accel said:

March 26th, 3:37 pm

chriscowboyd said:

March 26th, 3:54 pm

Wasn’t there supposed to be some announcement from Tecmo this week? Where’s that post on the blog? I know it’s about Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. I just wanted to make sure that they were only going to limit that purple haze blood substitution to Japan only while giving western audiences the blood that Ninja Gaiden 2 had.

Armstrong said:

Vassily is kinda like the protagonist from Enemy at the Gates, only instead of sniping German invaders he… codes.

Make game. Powerful. Shadows opposite of clear Vodka. Titan gameplay like Russian nesting doll. Yes?

BigPoppaB said:

March 26th, 4:23 pm

Im sorry,,, but this game is being hyped to be the be all and end all of gaming… but from the leaked gameplay video its kind of underwhelming.

Final game will be amazing, but just ease up a bit with the hype lol
