VG247: This GameFAQs forum post claims to have info on God of War III from an upcoming Game Informer feature.Official details are embargoed until this Friday, with a press event taking place for the game in LA last night.
OMG!!! can't wait
50 enemies at the time? only..? come on.. we're used to seeing 1000 enemies at a time courtesy HS. i am disappointed... lol. more bosses than GOW1 but less than GOW2. that's good. enemies are now smarter. like us, PS3 owners. q: this is one of the reasons i bought PS3. the rest of the games were bonuses!!! ultra super bonuses!!! like KZ2!!! q:
More enemies, more polygons, more variety.........did we expect anything less?
yes nix but take a point are they going to have 50 enemies that will stand there waiting for a beating like the 1000s we have been seeing on the trailer it looked liked they piled on top of u and gave u a good kick in
According to the mag, the AI will be a lot better, possibly even including situations where there is an enemy hierarchy of sorts, a commander coordinating attacks on Kratos.. So if there are just grunts they will mindlessly mill about and attack as they may, but if a centaur shows up, he may direct the grunts to perform coordinated attacks, etc.

i know they just stand there but in HS, they actually attack you too.. there is this time towards the end of the game where you will have to kill 500 enemies without dying. thats the time they surround you and attack you too... it's always breathtaking to see that. thousands of enemies sprawled across miles. 50 enemies is good enough if they are there all the time. i hope there are some moments where we can see thousand enemies too. q: @xulap: thanks for the links! q:
I hope that the "no multiplayer" isn't true, but still f***ing awesome even if it is!
The only thing was when there were that many enemies in HS the framerate dropped substantially.. which is to be expected when you've got over 1000 enemies all moving around at the same time.... it was still beautiful to say the least though.
Mr Bun, not every game needs multiplayer....
I posted this info in the N4G forums yesterday.. http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as... Hopefully some scans follow soon so some of this can be confirmed. Edit: Just a heads up, the PS Blog will be revealing new GOW3 info this friday (9pm Pacific).
I wonder if that "less bosses than GoW 2" means the game will be shorter as well
Not necessarily, GOW follows a scripted story so you include only the amount of bosses that fit your script. I dont think there is much point deviating to purely accommodate more boss' than found in GOW2. Less bosses in no way directly indicates less game time.
No, it means that they will be focusing more on each individual boss rather than adding more.
It may not make effect the length, but its just that bosses are usually used to split up the different segments/levels of the game and i doubt they are going to want long drawn out levels especially if they are going to have more enemies of screen since it will get repetitive a lot quicker Also i doubt they would cut down on quality if they added more
I get the feeling that your some how trying to twist "less bosses than GOW2" into a potentially negative thing (wonder why?). Either way, I'm pretty sure they know what they're doing and are working at their upmost to keep the quality up with the previous games. If you have what you think is a kick ass script would it concern you where or not you have more or less bosses than the previous game? Me personally no. Do you prefer Batman Forever over Batman Returns because it had more bosses (bad example admittedly)? Occasionally less can be more, especially when you take everything (the sum of its parts) into account, rather than concentrating on one tiny aspect.
seeing as how god of war 1 had about 4-6 bosses and god of war had about 20(ok maybe not that much), doubt it will disappoint.
GoW 1 had less bosses than GoW:CoO, yet GoW 1 was longer, and haven't they already said this will be the longest GoW game? What I want is more bosses like the hydra and the colossus where you fight the same boss several times. @NewYork214: GoW 1 had three bosses, Hydra, that flaming goat thing and Ares.
hope all of that is true, cant wait for this game. love greek mythology. story easily made this my favorite series. hopefully the story is a little better then GoW2. it wasnt bad but i thought 1 was much better
It's not supposed to have more bosses just because it's a bigger game. At least everything has been increased like enimies on Screen and polygon count etc etc. SCEA Santa Monica using teh Cell for Kratos.
Your powers of deduction are impressive.
Well, seeing as how I just got my March GI, I would say this info is indeed taken straight from the magazine. Whether all of this translates into the full game next year....thats another story. I really hope it does though. Don't ask me for scans please my printer/scanner is currently out of commission. Regarding graphics, there are a few new pics in the magazine that do appear to be screen shots. It looks pretty good, honestly though, I don't think I will be able to really appreciate it til I see this build in motion. For what its worth, I think the pic labeled "Kratos' in-game model" and a couple of the previously unseen screens do look a bit better than the VGA awards trailer. Don't get your hopes out of whack though, from the pics in the mag, this does NOT look any where near the E3 CG trailer... :( I will be pleasantly surprised if it does in the end. edit: LOL at disagree. This is just my opinion, I'm in no way saying it looks bad..it actually looks great. I notice actually that the blood splatters look a lot like KZ2's I wonder if it will be persistent with bodies stacking up as they are eliminated. That would be crazy, but it seems unlikely given how taxing that would be. Oh, also a lot of the environmental textures look pretty awesome as well.
you mean.. your printer/scanner.
Any chance you can post some scans in the forums or something? Readable. Edit: Sorry got excited, didnt notice you said you cant :(
Yeah, sorry Fishy and Nix :( Got to go to bed now its 2:41AM. If I can tomorrow after work, I'll try to take some camera photos of the mag and post them or maybe I can PM them (are mag photos/scans) ok on the N4G forums?? If so, I'll give it a shot.
They need to work on the over all graphics before boasting Poly's lol. DL-ed the trailer from PSN lastnight and the game needs plenty of dev time for polish to say the least. EDIT: Disagrees? GOW3 gameplay looks like CGI then? and not like an average budget multi platform game.
the game is still in early stages, and dont expect this game to come out till sometime in 2010, they have plenty of time to sort things out.
I love that the biggest Sony haters on this site own a PS3. You guys bashed and bashed and still bought. Hypocritical much?
haters inadvertably support the company/products they hate. and thus yuo'll see haters own something just to sling their disapproval of owning it. personally if you hate something you'd have nothing to do with it. so i'm left scratching my head as to why the go out and buy something they really dislike in teh first place.
I own both ps3 n 360 so I can't be a fanboy even though ps3 has no games, mgs4 is a movie, kz2 is overrated etc
i just hope it has a good tight story, and whatever improvements they make on gameplay will more than keep me happy. As for graphics, hey, just make it a little shinier than the last two, and I am a happy gamer.
god of war 1 had less bosses than 2 and that game also had drawn out levels, and it worked beutifully, becuz those levels were amazing, the scale of those levels on ps2 were off the hook for that generation. so if they have drawn out levels in this 1 no problem, it just means those levels will big and u will admire them when u play through them.
I am so excited for this...seriously.
It is not going to be a big deal if this is just single player. This game sounds like it is going to be intense!
But after sticking with my ps3 it has well and truly paid off great games like GOW mentioned in this article and many more. More rpg's please. Bring on the mmo's.
PP will be the first boss battle and we all know the first stage bosses are the easiest to beat!!! LOL
..and pretty damn epic :O here's hoping we see some gameplay at this year's e3, if that's not too soon..
Gow series IS the best action adventure games ever produced.Fanboys beware!
i love god of war 1 and 2 and always play them upscaled on my 320GB PS3, i will never get rid of though's games and can't wait to buy god of war 3 day one,
not to sound like a d*ck...but though's? come on how do you not know that it's those!?
I agree... there's a difference between making a grammatical mistake, and just plain making up your own grammar o_o
how is this a rumor? its been confirmed that its leaked :/
