god of war 3 ultimate edition

You knew it was coming, but today Sony announced the details for the “Ultimate Edition” of God of War III slated for release in March 2010.  Fans of the series should not be disappointed as the game will come packed in a replica Pandora’s Box bundled with the full length directors cut of the documentary on the making of the game entitled “God of War: Unearthing the Legend”, an art book, and two music CDs (God of War Trilogy soundtrack and a Metal EP inspired by the game).  In addition, the oft rumored Challenge Rooms have been confirmed as people who purchase the Ultimate Edition will get access to 7 exclusive rooms along with a downloadable skin for Kratos through a voucher code on the PSN.  In the U.S., pre-orders have begun today at select retailers where you can receive a free voucher to download the E3 demo of the game. Pre-order dates have yet to be confirmed for Canada, but that’s ok since the same demo can still be had if you purchase the soon to be released God of War Collection or the District 9 Blu-Ray movie.  Stay tuned.  Sean C.

FOSTER CITY, Calif., Oct. 30, 2009 – Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced today the worldwide release of the God of War® III Ultimate Edition available exclusively for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) system.  Built by the fans and for the fans of the award-winning God of War® franchise, the God of War III Ultimate Edition will feature an assortment of exclusive collectible and digital content encased in a high-end sculpted replica of Pandora’s Box.  Scheduled to release along with God of War III in March 2010, consumers can pre-order their copy of the God of War III Ultimate Edition beginning today from select retailers and receive a free PlayStation®Network voucher code to download the God of War III E3 2009 demo.

“The God of War franchise has an incredibly loyal fanbase and we know they will be extremely excited with all the exclusive content and memorabilia we’ve packed into God of War III Ultimate Edition, said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President, Marketing, SCEA. “With fans waiting patiently for the arrival of God of War III for the PS3, we wanted to make sure their anticipation was properly rewarded.”

In addition to a copy of the highly anticipated God of War III and the limited-edition art book, fans will receive exclusive digital content headlined by the director’s cut of God of War: Unearthing the Legend, a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise.  The Ultimate Edition will also include God of War- inspired downloadable music in the form of the God of War Trilogy soundtrack and the God of War Heavy Metal EP (Extended Play).  Lastly, fans will have access to the God of War Combat Arena, containing an exclusive environment and up to seven unique challenges, as well as the exclusive Kratos skin, Dominus, all available for download via the PlayStation Network.  The God of War III Ultimate Edition will retail for $99.99 (MSRP).

Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, Santa Monica Studio, God of War III is set in the realm of Greek mythology and is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he treads through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of hell to seek revenge on those who betrayed him.  Armed with double-chained blades, Kratos must take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.

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 have made significant strides in giving players the realistic feel of actually being on the battlegrounds.  With texture resolutions that have quadrupled since God of War II, God of War III 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 with many more enemies on-screen and be able to interact with levels like never before.
