God of War III arrives on PlayStation 4!
Perhaps no other video game franchise has come to define the PlayStation experience more than the exhilarating, jaw-dropping epic, God of War. Set in an alternate version of ancient Greece, the game stars Kratos, a former Spartan warrior who faithfully served the God of War, Ares—until he is tricked by the callous Greek deity into killing his own wife and child. God of War III is the climatic, final chapter of Kratos’ Greek trilogy story arc that sees him rise from the depths of the Underworld all the way to the heights of Mount Olympus to exact his bloody revenge on the Olympic pantheon.
Now you can relive this momentous, ground-breaking action adventure game in glorious HD on your PlayStation 4!

Interested in seeing just how gorgeous God of War III Remastered is? Just take a look at this Kratos vs. Hades boss battle trailer, and make sure to put the YouTube video setting at 1080p60 HD to see the full effect!
Wield Powerful Weapons
That brutal battle takes place in the Underworld, home of Greek god Hades. In the clip you can see Kratos wield his mighty Blades of Exile, given to him by Athena, which are permanently chained to his wrists. Kratos also can be seen deploying wings, stolen from Icarus in God of War II, enabling him to briefly glide after jumping. Finally, he also relies upon the Bow of Apollo to attack Hades safely at a distance.
At the 6:00 mark, you can watch as Kratos wrestles the powerful Claws of Hades from the god’s hands, and them use them to finish him off (plus take down a few Underworld minions!)
Impressive Graphical Updates
The boost to the game’s graphics are quite impressive indeed, from the intricate detail seen on Kratos and Hades themselves, to the superb lighting effects with both Kratos’ and Hades’ weapon attacks. I was also greatly impressed with the improved particle effects, such as the dust cloud the arises whenever Hades’ claw slams down onto the battle arena floor. The level of brutality has also been amped up, with more realistic gore as Kratos rips Hades apart with his devastating dual blades.
Not only does God of War III Remastered give you a greatly enhanced version of this beloved, fan-favourite game, but you’ll also receive all downloadable content (DLC) costumes and content. Furthermore, the game includes a brand new Photo Mode that lets you freeze the action at any time, tweak the lighting and camera angle, and then share your greatest moments with all your friends!
Pre-order now for the God of War – Fall of Olympus Dynamic Theme
I’d be remisss if I didn’t mention again that by pre-ordering God of War III Remastered online on BestBuy.ca you’ll receive free the God of War – Fall of Olympus Dynamic Theme for your PlayStation 4. Years ago, I had the God of War Ascension dynamic theme for my PlayStation 3, and it was awesome to fire up my console and be greeted with beautiful artwork from the game. While I haven’t seen the Fall of Olympus theme yet, Sony has a knack for producing excellent dynamic themes so I’m quite excited to see this one soon!
