A preview in Game Informer‘s March issue has revealed new information on God of War III, and a gorgeous new cinematic trailer on Eurogamer.net is there to give our imaginations a rest and show us how these new mechanics work.
Many aspects of the game are getting a makeover, including Kratos who is jumping from a design of 5,000 polygons to 20,000. There will be more dynamic interaction with the Titans and Kratos will be pit against up to 50 enemies at once. Enemies will also build strategies when fighting, responding to a leader or sometimes jumping Kratos all at once which can be countered by a wiggle of the analog stick.
Of course if the enemies are getting rebuilt, so is Kratos. He’ll be carrying new weapons including the Cestus Gauntlets which look like two great animal heads on his hands. Each new weapon will serve as a great difference form the Blades of Chaos, will have more purpose and allow the player more options.
There’s no release date yet for the end of the trilogy, but the anticipation is building! Game director Stig Asmussen told Game Informer, “We want this to be the game that shows people what the PS3 can do.”
