Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand is pleased to announce the imminent arrival of God of War III for PlayStation®3 (PS3™), the final showdown of the epic trilogy and addition to the franchise that has sold over 3.9 million copies in PAL.
Available to buy on March 18th, it’s the game that the whole gaming world is already talking about: a brutal, adventure through the ancient Greek underworld where you play as Kratos, the angriest antihero you’ve ever met. In this final chapter of the franchise, the gods of Olympus have betrayed Kratos and the entire Ancient World – and Kratos is very, very angry.
God of War III is your chance to take the battle to the gods for a final confrontation, revelling in the relentless destruction, bringing out your inner berserker and shaking the very foundations of Mount Olympus itself.
Kratos’s PlayStation 3 debut puts the powers of the gods into your hands– and then lets you use them against your tormentors picking up where 2007’s hit God of War® II left off.
After hacking and slashing his way out of the Underworld and through the threads of time, the former Spartan captain is heading for Olympus to pile into his toughest set of enemies yet: the entire pantheon of Greek gods.
He’s mad, he’s bad and he’s armed with the Blades of Chaos and the pulverising Cestus – it’s going to get ugly. This stunning climax to an epic story rivals Hollywood in its scope.
A tale of betrayal, revenge, destruction and determination that stretches from the battlefields of ancient Greece to the lofty halls of the gods in an adventure through the darkest and richest mythology ever imagined – and you can be there all the way.
God of War III is the gripping finale to a franchise that the gaming world has taken to heart. Kratos’s outings on PlayStation®2 have more than 2.95 million copies in PAL.
God of War®: Chains of Olympus for PSP™ (PlayStation® Portable) has over 970,000 copies to date in PAL. The accolades for God of War III are set to be just as high, with the game delivering everything that the fans have been dreaming of - and more.
