For those that have been waiting for another reason to pre-order God of War III Ultimate Edition, this might just be your tipping point =)

Announced today through Roadrunner Records, the EP titled God of War: Blood & Metal, will be released in March as a part of the God of War III Ultimate Edition, and will feature five exclusive unreleased songs from Roadrunner artists, including KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, DREAM THEATER, TRIVIUM, OPETH and TAKING DAWN.


For those that recall the original announcement PS Blog post, in addition to the raged fueled God of War: Blood & Metal EP, consumers who purchase the God of War III Ultimate Edition will also receive a voucher code to download the God of War Trilogy soundtrack, a special code to download a director’s cut of God of War: Unearthing the Legend, a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise, access to an exclusive God of War Challenge Arena environment with up to seven unique challenges, an exclusive Kratos skin, and a limited edition art book. The God of War III Ultimate Edition will retail for $99.99 (MSRP).

“Music has always been an important part of videogames and can help bring titles to life,” said Stig Asmussen, God of War III Game Director. “Our goal is to make God of War III a special release in all areas and this just another way to offer fans and newcomers a worthwhile experience.”

For more details, here’s the press release.

OK fine, you talked me into it. I will upgrade to the Ultimate Edition. I was most likely going to anyway, but this was definitely my tipping point.

Also, PLEASE make that cover art a wallpaper…or better yet a dynamic theme with lightning flashes in the background. – HOTNESS!

Zookey said:

December 21st, 1:37 pm

poweredbyzen said:

MadmanEU said:

December 21st, 1:39 pm

It would be nice if we could get a taste of this music…ie: release one of the songs for us to hear.

Will this music be in the game anywhere?

More info pl0x, less secrecy.

angelspawn77 said:

December 21st, 2:10 pm

I have never heard of any of those bands listed lol. But im willing to give it a listen. I love the artwork on the cover there though, that looks awesome.

Tinaray said:

December 21st, 2:12 pm

Lawl, bad math.

December 21st, 2:13 pm

Roadrunner Records is a cool company. If only Metallica was in this I’d be sold automatially

Can you buy this EP without getting the set? I really want the game and the EP but i cant afford the $100.


December 21st, 2:19 pm

TailsTheCat said:

December 21st, 2:20 pm

You are all too young to remember Dream Theater; theres about half of a metal band on that soundtrack. Pathetic.

theBedBurner said:

December 21st, 2:27 pm

Wow that is a very metal album cover.

ShadowOfEden said:

December 21st, 2:29 pm

Wow, awesome. I love some of those bands and I’m a big God Of War fan. Can’t wait!

Tinaray said:

December 21st, 2:29 pm

If you don’t consider Opeth metal then you’re obviously using a definition you created yourself.

But, you know, keep talking down to random people on the internet about it. It shows character.

Killswitch engage are MINT! I’m gonna get GOW3

hush404 said:

December 21st, 2:53 pm

Really digging the idea of Metal bands like KSE and Opeth doing GoW music :)

But why is everything download code? Why can’t get get discs? Especially for the movie.

Who are the winners of the God of War Spartan Army sweepstakes?!! You guys were supposed to announce the winners on the 17th and it is now the 21st.

    Sorry, we\’re pending confirmation from the selected winners. We will announce later on this week

xiked said:

December 21st, 2:59 pm

I have preboked this game!

Jeigh said:

December 21st, 3:01 pm

Actually, whether or not people feel like $60 is justified for a game alone, putting all of this stuff together, even if it adds $40 to the package, makes it seem almost unquestionably worth the purchase. Dammit, can someone loan me $100? (And by “loan” I mean “give”)

EXTREME_rkmn said:

December 21st, 3:02 pm

Ummm wait, the FULL LENGTH movie documentary is a download, not a blu-ray? I was fine with everything else being download but that is [DELETED] Sony. That documentary belongs on a blu-ray disc, not as a download. That is ridiculous. Charge me 10 or 20 dollars more, I want that on a disc.

EXTREME_rkmn said:

December 21st, 3:06 pm

For the record, I have the Ultimate Edition pre-ordered already, but come on. The documentary should be on a BLU-RAY

At least they replied, so before the end of the week? I hope you guys keep your word this time.
