In case you hadn’t noticed by the sidebars of PerezStart for the past couple of months, we have been patiently anticipating for the release of God of War III. During last year’s E3, Sony promised us a March 2010 release for the game, but I personally wouldn’t be happy until I could place an angry Kratos sticker on an exact date on my calendar. It looks like little angry Kratos finally has a spot on my calendar to sit on as Sony announced today March 16, 2010 will be when God of War III finally releases.
The questions isn’t whether anyone with a PS3 will pick up the game: The question is if you’ll pick up the standard version of the God of War III Ultimate Edition. For those of you who, like me, enjoy getting some extra goodies with your video game purchase, here’s a rundown of what to expect in the Ultimate Edition:
• High-End Sculpted Replica of Pandora’s Box
• Limited-Edition God of War Art Book featuring exclusive art, content and interviews
Exclusive Digital Content (Available via PlayStation Network voucher codes on day of launch)
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges
• Premium Kratos Skin – Dominus
• God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary – a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise
• God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game (mp3 digital download).
• God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (mp3 digital download).
Looks like my piggy bank has a date with a blade of chaos come March 16.
