God of War III Ultimate Edition

SCEA and Santa Monica Studios are thrilled to announce the first Ultimate Edition for God of War. Earlier this year, we polled a number of fans on what would make an awesome collector’s edition for God of War. Well, we took your advice and created something epic and filled it with premium collectible and exclusive digital content.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition will feature the following:

Exclusive Collectibles
• High-End Sculpted Replica of Pandora’s Box
• Limited-Edition God of War Art Book featuring exclusive art, content and interviews

Exclusive Digital Content (Available via PlayStation Network voucher codes on day of launch)
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges
• Premium Kratos Skin – Dominus
• God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary – a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise
• God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game (mp3 digital download).
• God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (mp3 digital download).

But it keeps getting better for the fans. Those that pre-order God of War III at select retailers will receive a voucher code for first access to download the God of War III E3 2009 Demo starting today, plus you will receive an exclusive downloadable skin from the following retailers: Amazon, GameCrazy and GameStop.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

And as a special thank you to our Spartan Army members who signed up on www.GodofWar.com, we are sending out a direct email today with one free voucher code to randomly selected fans. So, please make sure you check your email inbox over the weekend to see if you are one of the lucky ones to receive a voucher code allowing you to download this demo instantly from PlayStation Network! Remember, it’s a random selection and only a limited amount of vouchers are being sent out, so good luck.

Thanks again to all the fans for their continued support and enthusiasm for God of War. We are all excited to give you an early taste of what is expected to be one of the biggest games of 2010!

In The End There Will Be Only Chaos…..

Cool, but GoW never really has captured my interest. Then again I haven’t really got a chance to sit down and play it, so I wouldn’t know how good it is.

I was planing on getting the God of war collection. Does that come with the demo also or is this the only way to get the demo is with a pre-order?

God of War rules!!! Can’t wait to get the game but the Ultimate Edition really doesn’t strike me as a must get for me. I’ll just stick with the game itself.

TailsTheCat said:

October 30th, 7:28 am

You must be kidding. What are you hawking here? This is just a typical collector’s edition. A fancy case, the game with standard box art and an art book. Digital content is worthless. This is pathetic.

tenshin78 said:

October 30th, 7:30 am

I WOULD buy an GOW 3 and GOW Collection package, thats what we answer in the pool.

I have a HUGE Question. If I went to the store and pre-ordered a copy today (I know I should have already done it), will the demo code be given out immediately? At gamestop, they usually rob the buyers pre-order goodies and never give them out. Also, how long will you guys be giving the codes out? Are they already ALL SENT out? I hope I get one. I’m such a huge fan off your guys work its just amazing. Payed all of them, even chain of Olympus and that was better than some titles to come to next gen systems. I will definitely be picking this collectors edition and the GoW1&2 bundle. Keep doing a fantastic job!

The god GOW I & II collections comes with a GOW3 demo


KazeEternal said:

October 30th, 7:41 am

Will the arena have trophies? If so could you please keep those trophies out of the running for the Platinum requirement for god of war 3?

I’m getting this edition, but I just think it would be unfair to those who A) can’t afford it or B) Simply don’t want that edition of the game.

Anyway this is awesome.

3. How much is the Ultimate Edition?

CruzaderXL said:

October 30th, 7:58 am

$80 for this? Thats cheap! Take a look at Activision for consumer rape.

Thunderpizza said:

October 30th, 7:59 am

such a good bundle, and probably a game to match.

My only regrets is that they shoulda done this with uncharted 2.

Do want… How much and where can I buy it?

KingBroly said:

October 30th, 8:02 am

Are all the skins going to be available to everyone at some point? I’ll be mad if they aren’t.

Is the God of War III demo the same for those who pre-order the God of War Collection?

joseph2411 said:

October 30th, 8:03 am

Thats an awesome bundle. I can’t remember if i signed up to the spartan army i’m almost sure i did since i have received many emails abot GOW3 but is there any way to be sure?

Well if i don’t get it this week there’s chance with the GOW Collection.

remanutd5 said:

October 30th, 8:04 am

Holy CRAP so you telling us that if we go to pre order God of War 3 we might get a DEMO voucher code today??? ok where can i pre order it in order to play the GOW3 demo?? i havent done it because i was waiting for you guys to announced the Collectors Edition, now that you did i can pre order . its so weird to see Kratos face on a boxart lol, any GOW fan knows what im talking about , man i paid $600 for my 60 gb ps3 to play MGS4 , GOW3 , GT5 and the new Team Ico game , i have played 1 , 3 left

    You can download the GOW III Demo as early as today if you pre-order immediately. Please visit your selected retailer for more info

October 30th, 8:04 am

This is epic. That box is sweet. If it is not too late a GOW III poster would be a really nice addition, like this:

Anyways I will be picking this up D-1.

thepmac said:

October 30th, 8:05 am

Yeah I think they need to answer the How much and where it will be available questions.

GoW_4 said:

October 30th, 8:06 am

NICE!! EPIC!! i will destroy all the GODS!! Can’t wait for this game and im going to pre-order it right now!!

thepmac said:

October 30th, 8:07 am

Also notice that this is the “FIRST” Ultimate Edition. Which leads me to believe they are planning more than one.

CosmycMyndFuhk said:
