360 Magazine: “We have five distinct geographic regions, 120+ dungeons, four big cities, dozens of towns and quest hubs… it’s a big world you’re going to be going through and a lot of time-consuming content.”
I'd just like to cheekily comment about this. I can't see how this is going to be anything like God Of War. Most RPG's with action elements don't offer the same sort deep combat as GoW. This looks fun, but I don't know if GoW is a good comparison. It'll be nice to have a GoW style game on the 360 tho.
everything wants to be like god of war x) EDIT: when i first read this i thought this REALLY was a new god of war Spinoff x( stupid article names
Hey, I dont think nothing is wrong with making a game like GOW, to me its in the same genera, action. The more like GOW with great game play and story the better, we will have more games like this and have fun playing it.
@Chaos-lockheart i don't mind it at all it's just that they always SUCK ASS :( i was so excited for Darksiders, and.... samefor bayo, and... i gave up hope and never even acknowledged Dante's inferno/CV:LOS if this game is actually like god of war then i'd love to play it, if it were on PS3 :P
It is on PS3.
It has that label because a few publications labelled the combat as being a bit like GoW. This article seems to miss the point that it is an open world action RPG. How it can be the new GoW when it is a different genre boggles the mind. This site is really clutching at straws.
I knew it was coming from a Xbox site straight away. Xbox has some great exclusives like Halo, Gears of War. Why not talk about these great games instead of this "New God of War". God of War is a PlayStation franchise, so no this is not a new God of War. Let's wait until the game is released.
These 360 sites can't seem to stay away from PS3 games. Kinda pathetic. On another note, I will keep this game on my radar now, and see how it turns out.
Thought this was multi plat... o.o
The writer must be pretty stupid if he thinks this has any relation at all to God of War
3 words: Rolston, McFarlane, Salvatore. All you need to know TO KNOW that Kingdoms deserves some hype and exposure on its own merits. I also like that it's being developed in conjunction with a MMO (which means an entire mythos is being created as a backdrop for the new IPs). Am I the only gamer here, despite my excitement for Skyrim, isn't just a little nervous that the former LEAD designer for Bethesda's 2 best Elder Scrolls games ISN'T there? Rolston could've stayed on or retired but chose instead to come over to Big Huge/38 Studios. Doesn't that create a little intrigue? Impressed Shilling got both T.M. and Salvatore onboard as well. Both are respected in their respective fields and will be greatly contribute to the project. I can see why EA quickly signed them to a publishing deal.
Eh? It's an interview, i.e. a transcription of someone's words.
STOP IT! Just stop the madness right NOW! Now I know editors will whore themselves out and do unspeakable things just for the sake of web-hits but this has got to STOP NOW! Kingdoms is NOTHING like GOW! I myself am looking forward to buying Kingdoms but i wouldn't put it in the same game class as GOW. God of War = hack n slash at it's finest Kingdoms = Action RPG God of War and it's Dev team are so good that nothing can touch it and kingdoms is a completely different genre of game.
just like GOW. Your discrediting Kingdoms a little too much. They both have similar, great, and creative action. Also God of war isn't hack and slash, it's action because the combat mixes up very well.
I'm not discrediting Kingdoms in anyway. I even say "I myself am looking forward to buying Kingdoms" BUT......i wouldn't put it in the same game class as GOW because Kingdoms is an action RPG as labeled by the Devs. YOU said "They both have similar, great, and creative action"....WOW when did you play Kingdoms?
You can go on youtube, it'll show you right there, you can see some great action, I didnt say anything about the controls right, I said action. I don't need to watch a movie at home to know if it has great action right, as long as I see some great action.
An open world RPG with combat similar to GOW? Sounds like a winning formula to me. However, from what I have seen, the combat does not really look similar at all. It has it's own (and very good, I might add) animations and move sets. The spell casting in particular looks fantastic.
Compares it to God of War.
How many titles were supposed to be the new God Of War? Yet, all of them failed miserably.
Don't be fooled by the title. I read the whole thing and there is no comparison made by the author. He/She threw in the title for hits. ----------------- This game is has been on my radar for a while. Hopefully, sites like this won't turn off God of War fans or place any more unnecessary pressure to measure up with a top game from a different genre.
I've been following this game too and think it doesn't make any sense to compare it to GOW. It looks like a great game. Most probably I'll be getting it.
Its more like fable and oblivion with some more intense combat which is why people have said its like gow. This game looks to be one of the best rpgs in years and people are sleepin on it hard.
How many times will 360 focused websites go out of their way to try and discredit PS3 exclusives? If anything these are the sites that need to be discredited due to pointless, flamebait-inducing, hit-whoring! How about creating original, quality journalistic content rather than stuff that you know will only stir trouble and is BS to even begin with? This game is nothing like GOW, because GOW is GOW.
