Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows you to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.
ONLY ON THE PS3 SYSTEM - The award-winning development team leverages the
processing power and technology of PLAYSTATION 3 system to make God of War III
one of the most-graphically advanced next gen titles available, with even the
dramatic cut screens running off the in-game engine.
GROUNDBREAKING DEPTH OF SCALE - Kratos will explore areas up to 4 times
larger than those found in God of War II, as well as carve through entire
armies while navigating on the back of Titans - living, moving, breathing
levels as tall as the Empire State Building.
TYLIZED REALISM - Players will battle in detailed and unique 3D worlds lit
by thousands of dynamic lights and textures with quadruple the resolution,
which allows for realistic muscle striations, detailed facial expressions, and
new heightened levels of brutality and gore.
SIGNATURE GAMEPLAY - Brutal combat, intricate puzzles, exploration of
awe-inspiring worlds, and a compelling and satisfying ending to Kratos epic
SOPHISTICATED STORYLINE - The God of War III storyline is the epic
conclusion to the trilogy; the storyline will be told in a way that is true to
traditionalist roots in Greek mythology, from moral consequences to brutal
battles against the Gods.
RIDEABLE CREATURES - Several of the menacing creatures of Greek mythology
in God of War III can now be manipulated against their will, as Kratos uses
them to cross chasms, inflict blind rage against enemies, reveal puzzles and
secrets, and as tools of complete annihilation.
NEW WEAPONS AND COMBAT SYSTEM - New deadly weapons such as the Cestus --
powerful metal gauntlets with devastating strength -- and other brutal
instruments of war that will allow Kratos to learn ruthless new techniques
such as grappling with enemies and launching explosive wall-to-ground attacks.
LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES - The dynamic lighting solution employed in GOW III
is only feasible through the computing power provided by the Cell SPUs. For
example, using the High Dynamic Range Lighting (HDRL) technology, the camera -
when using Krato's sightline - will emulate the human retina, causing players
to feel a sharp brightness when Kratos exits a dark area and enters a sunlit
area, similar to how the human eye would need to adjust.
