God of War III Brings a Thrilling End to the Epic Trilogy

Final Installment of the Blockbuster Franchise Showcases the Power of the PS3

Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA) today announced the North American release of God of War III, exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment's award-winning Santa Monica Studios, God of War III is the final installment of the multi-million unit-selling trilogy that brings epic battles to life with stunning graphics, groundbreaking depths of scale, and signature gameplay along with an elaborate plot placing ex-Spartan warrior Kratos at the center of carnage and destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him.

Utilizing a new game engine built from the ground up and state-of-the-art visual technologies, the development team behind God of War III has made standard-setting strides in giving players the realistic feel of actually being on the battlegrounds. With texture resolutions quadrupling since God of War II on the PlayStation , God of War III, in its debut on the PS3 system, will feature fluid, life-like characters, as well as dynamic lighting effects, a robust weapon system, and world-changing scenarios that will truly bring unmistakable realism to Kratos' fateful quest. Players will have a chance to join battles on a grand scale that is four times larger than its predecessor, while experiencing detailed and unique 3D worlds lit by thousands of dynamic lights and textures that allow for astonishing realism and new heightened levels of brutality and gore.

"Since its announcement last spring and our demonstration shown at E3 2009, God of War III has remained one of the most eagerly anticipated titles in recent memory," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President, Product Marketing, SCEA. "With this unique experience, our development team has truly set a new bar for the video game industry, leveraging the power of the PS3 to create a technical masterpiece that couples jaw-dropping visuals with a gripping story sure to amaze fans and newcomers alike."

Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III picks up where the franchise left off allowing players to take on the climatic role of Kratos as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hades to seek revenge on the gods. 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.
