God Of War III Gameplay Looks Close To Beowulf Movie?
If you haven't had the chance yet, we suggest taking the time to check it out before continuing with this news update. Go watch the God of War III debut trailer that was shown to the world for the first time during Sony's E3 press conference. ...done watching? Okay, now while it's obviously not gameplay, recent evidence says it ain't far off.
According to GameSpot's latest HotSpot podcast, SCEA's upcoming action extravaganza is lookin' pretty damn good. So good, in fact, that "the level of realism as far as the graphics go" appears "very close" to what we see in this CG trailer. This is taken from a number of inside sources, and it's even said that GoWIII actually looks a lot like "Beowulf," the CGI blockbuster movie from last year. Now, we don't know about you, but we find this news to be awfully encouraging. Of course, we've heard similar hype before, although we'd like to think this information comes from fairly reliable sources, even if we can't confirm them ourselves. There's certainly no doubt that God of War has pushed the visual envelope with every installment, be it on the PS2 or PSP, but now it's time to push the envelope on a much more advanced machine. It's our opinion that SCEA Santa Monica is up to the challenge, but only time will tell...
By the way, God of War III still holds an early March release date according to GameStop, but it may just be a placeholder date that doesn't mean anything. As far as Sony is concerned, it's still officially "TBA." We'll bring you more GoWIII news as soon as it becomes available.
