According to the scan from PlayStation magazine, the next DLC of God of War 3 is a multiplayer fighting game? http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/9540/kratosgow3.jpg
Better not be a damn April fools (early I know) because this would be great, I was hoping for some co-op action but this would be brilliant too. Wonder if online would be supported. Need better scan to translate text. Again, April fools and I wont be happy.
It could be an April fools.. but more likely a real thing as it's on French PS magazine.
But do april fools fake announcements include those done in a magazine?! Thats whats making me slightly believe it... I hope!
Nogolis said a while back that GOW3 would b getting some sort of dlc and it would b like a gladiator arena or something of the sorts. I can never tell if that guy makes stuff up or if he really is an industry insider... Oh well this would b fantastic news if true.
WOW, thank God I saw this today! I was gunna sell GOW3 2morrow. @ToastMan- Oh srry, I said sell but I meant trade. I already beat the game twice so I'm trading it in for a used copy of Yakuza 3 or Just Cause 2. By trading u don't technically lose any money, its just that u get a new game for the money u already spent. 2 SP experiences for the price of one =D
if true that would be amazing and i do hope theres online support as well if not its okay but i can definitely see this happening.. the beginning fight sequence with zeus shows that they can pull off something like this whether its on a 2d plane or hell even full 3d.. very excited about this
WOOOT IMMORTAL KOMBAT! :D Can't wait. @1.7 exactly my thoughts.. you coulda just rented it -.-
@deadreckoning i could understand wanting to sell certain games back that only have a single player to it but why would you buy it in the first place knowing you would sell it later?
All Over the place.
can't wait for multiplayer battles consisting of 2 people spamming L1+Square.
I smell an April fools photoshop.
is it real? or Aprils Fool? Anyway that will be sweet!
you want to sell GOWIII i can understand if it isn't your cup of tea with two cubes and a drop of milk but some games are just keepers GT3 for me for example, I am the biggest racing car noob, but that game is just something =) i get bored of it after a couple of hours but i always come back for some =) GOWIII just has that *awesome* thing to it =D i mean, just keep it for sex scene alone xD jk oh well, enjoy Just Cause 2 =) im sure who ever gets your GOWIII will make better use of it
I always thought the Zeus fight would've made an excellent looking fighter. The graphics in that part of the game were mind blowing. Imagine a multiplayer GoW "2D/3D" fighter like SF4 with the characters being the gods, perseus, hercules, and whoever gow 'mortal' characters I left out.
@1.7 Deadreakoning is probably just saying this to piss people off. Edit: Beardpapa spoilers please.
I have a bad feeling it's going to turn out as a lame April Fool's joke. Maybe SM should consider a GOW fighting game. How awesome would that be to play as the cast from the GOW series in a well made fighting game?
why would i want top play co-op in GOW3? i havent come across one person on this site that has beaten it on chaos besides me YOU TWERPS!! lol
I remember hiphopgamer was talking to stig about this in an interview
Like everyone else suspects it's an aprils fools joke. The first image is from the fight scene towards the end against Zeus and the second image is taken from the battle with Hercules. The images were obviously shopped to add a long life bar and rage of the titans meter/symbol symmetrically on the image. So don't worry people. Like Santa Monica has already stated the real DLC will be something far more exciting.
if its an april fools joke then thats pretty lame, but if its tru then i called a gow fighring gamemonths ago and it would be awesome
holy sh!t if this is true it would be awesome... maybe it's like the fight in The Challenges of Exile "Defeat Fear itself!", it was quite tricky actually to beat that Kratos :D
This better not be true, I had a game idea and one of the DLC's was going to be a fighting game.
One of the boss fights in particular reminded me a lot of Mortal Kombat (Scorpion VS Raiden). If they could throw in characters from GOWIII as well as past characters I'd love it.
the zeus fight was 2D (some of it) so i can see this working out.. but they'll need to tweak alot of the gameplay for it.
@Bjornbear- Yeah man. To each his own I guess. I don't think its a bad game at all. IMO its the best in the series and its the most technically impressive I've game ever played. I feel GOW3 is something that should be tried by action gamer who owns a PS3, but its not something I c myself going back to. Believe it or not, I'm getting more enjoyment from BC2 than I am from GOW3. In light of this news, I think ill just lend GOW3 to a friend for a while and take it back when this DLC comes out.
look at one of the comments on that GTpage. WHAT THE FU**ING sh*T. ... well i thought it was funny... (back on topic) could be fake, could be real, not realy interested though, big GOW3 fan but if its real, then the price will convince me if i should buy or not.
April fools!!! It's def not coming with multiplayer lol
are droids so upset they are disagreeing with you?
what i don't get about April fools is that anytime around this period ppl presume things will be an april fools, but of course in truth April fools is only on 1 day lol and in some countries ur technically only 'allowed' to play a trick on someone before noon else your the 'April fool' it's April Fools DAY not April fools week lol
yea i guess no one likes me XD dont u remember the egm april fools joke a long time ago? sonic and tails in smash melee? well it could happen here
would be a little "kaotic" if you ask me... oh well, we'll see right?
if this is not not executed with 100% care and precision,this could be a mega fail!!!!
Are you serious? Of course they'll execute it well. It's a first party developer, first party developers usually put all there time into there game unlike 3rd party developers that leave the last game they made with crap dlc. CMON SANTA MONICA STUDIOS IS LIKE NAUGHTY DOG'S SON
Guys, I can assure you that the picture is real. It's a direct shot from the French official PS mag. However, if it's an April fools or not, I can't confirm you that.
This is 100 percent real.
april 1st isnt for another few days.
obvious April fool even though we're not yet the 1st, this is a magazine, the April version of a magazine...
The pranks will be rolling in all week..
It was a valid attempt. I give him kudos.
GOD OF WAR! =O this is insane
I'm gonna buy this mag tomorrow and verify for myself,seems legit cause the French text actually say there's a first download involving a multi-player mode
Well, since some believe the tradition may have it's roots in France there's no saying the magazine won't be pulling our legs. Although I've only come across the daft April fish thing(in French cartoons IIRC)myself I'm told by my Francophile mum and the tech hero Christophe that the p[ranks do indeed flow in the land of cheese and du vin.
I find the best gaming announcements seem to come on 1st April...
the one whit the box in the background.that was epic.can't wait
Am I the only one who feels indifferent about this? Well it could be good Sony Santa Monica wouldn't do something stupid to their game they've been developing for a little over three years.
I wanted that epilogue as DLC :(
Kratos has already been in a fighting game, Soulcalibur 4 PSP. So maybe they got NamcoBandai to help wiyh development. I always said Sony should do a fighting game, and this could be an experimental step toward that. but also, has the French PS mag done April fools in the past?
i hate this BS, is this even funny to anyone? isn't that the point?
I HONESTLY seen this coming i mean HHG said something about a god of war fighting game b/c the fighting gameplay was so good and i agree i mean quick time events for fatalitys chains of chaos as wepons u can play as kratos brother with the fist things u can play as zeus and he can be a raiden sort of charector you can play as hades him being some sort of boss battle who knows a fighting game could have a great story if u give it to people who are know for some of the most legandary storys ever? theres a possiblity that this isn't just another arcade fighter this could be epic win no fail...but im kind of thinking this is just that psp thing because kratos was in a psp soul caliber?
Umm isn't this the arena we got with the pre-order/Ultimate ver of the game?
People started very soon with the April fools day.
I'm French and I read PlayStation Magazine. The whole 2 pages are April Fools. You have some Keyboard Hero, infos about Assassin's Creed III featuring a russian character in NY,... Anyways, ther are just jokes !
It could be true. I don't have that mag, but a friend of mine got it and took a shot of it. That's his picture. More like an April fools to me too.
so french people know how to actually have a laugh?
By the gods of Olympus
When I saw the first battle with Zeus on GoW3 it reminded me a lot of Mortal Kombat vs Dc. Just hope it isn't an april fools joke
I'm sure it's already on the disk.
Interesting... we will find out soon enough.
I say April fools...
***SPOILER**** ***SPOILER**** ***SPOILER**** (well not really lol) i remember when fighting Zues during the first phase of the fight that it felt v much like ur classic fighting game lol ***SPOILER**** ***SPOILER**** ***SPOILER**** if it's free then why not i say?
Either way I will buy it. I'm F*cking OBSESSED with this game. Although I think that Uncharted 2 was better as far as polish and seemlessness, God of War 3 was F*CKIN AMAZING! SPARTANS STAND TALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even if it were remotely true about multiplayer for GoWIII, the Piano Hero above the article is a dead ringer for a fake. Can you imagine how big the note bar would be to fit 88 notes across the fret bar? rrriiight. Nice try though
