Early this morning, USA Today published a short preview of Sony’s exclusive God of War III (or 3 for those who prefer fewer characters) game, coming to Playstation 3 in the near future. If the article is to be believed, “near” is a lot closer than anyone expected.
Within the article’s commentary author Mike Snider casually drops this statement, “God of War III, due this fall.” Earlier rumors points towards a winter or early 2010 release, not this fall. If true, God of War III could be firing up on your PS3 as early as September.
Mike managed an early look at the game and passes along some interview snippets with the game’s director, Stig Asmussen.
“When (Kratos) is chopping an enemy in half, you can see his muscles flexing and his veins bulging. When he puts his blade back, you can see the veins actually go away. … The fans are going to appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the textures and the models and the real fidelity of the animations.”
Asmussen goes on to describe an epic battle between gods and titans.
“That’s where God of War III kicks off. Kratos is bringing these Titans into battle up the side of Mount Olympus. We’re looking forward to this legendary great war between the gods and Titans.”
Read the rest of the article over at USA Today, and expect Sony to formally announce God of War III’s release date during their E3 Media Briefing later today.
