God Of War III Chaos Will Rise Trailer Is Positively Epic

For PlayStation 3 owners, February is all about Heavy Rain, but this industry continues to move forward at lightning speed, meaning we're all forced to be fickle about our current passions.

Next up will be the hotly anticipated God of War III, which we've been waiting on for a very long time. It launches in North America on March 16 and although we've seen plenty of media and footage thus far, we haven't seen what has been described as a "Hollywood-style" trailer complete with the updated and finalized game engine. Well, the Chaos Will Rise trailer debuted on GameTrailers TV last night and not surprisingly, Kratos once again managed to take our breath away. Rather than explain it, it's better if you just watch it:

There now, wasn't that fun? It just makes us want the game all over again...and we kinda spend a lot of time wanting it. The boss battles look beyond epic, the environments and detailing are gorgeous, and the assumed intensity is just plain through the roof. Although Dante's Inferno is a solid title and one you may want to consider if you simply can't put off your hack 'n slashin' fun, God of War III should once again set the bar. Is there a GoW title that doesn't when it releases?

I was up late last night watching this over and over again. The more you watch the more anticipation for this game builds. On my eighth time around I caught a glimpse of Kratos battling someone...is that? Wait a minute, rewind...download...open with VLC player...stop at 0:59...WOW! Look at Kratos beating the Pulp Fiction out of someone, blood flying all over his body. Time to slow this baby down...command - to go slower, command - slower yet...slower still. HUZZAH! Confirmation, Zeus is in the trailer! He takes Kratos and slams him into a nearby wall...there is no words that can describe this trailers other than EPIC! EPIC! EPIC!

i think we all liked this games initially not only because of the game-play but Sony has created a character thats 100% different of any other hero we know he is full of hostility , animosity , sorrow ,sadness and he even hates his own father and we all still like him ,
my parent are all against video games in every way possible they dont like the idea of the ps3 or ps2 being at my home but my father didnt resist looking and admiring at Kratos running in the first 2 parts of the games he even said "look at him, u can feel the earth is shaking under his feet "

I discovered this in 'LUST' that he will give you relics!

After watching this again for the 7th time at work my hands are still shaking.

While I was on lunch I was showing it to one of my co-workers and my boss came over and asked us what we were watching. So I figured I give him the royal treatment and show him all the GOW trailers. When we got to the end of the new trailer, he said that had finally sold him on getting a PS3, he owns an xbox already. He asked me what games he should get to start off and I gave him a list. Good day, good day.

That was an awesome trailer. Everything about this game screams winner. The demo blew me away and with each passing day I get more excited. Literally from the demo alone, this game redefines the genre. No other game seems to come close to what GOW3 has for us.

bottom line, this is the game I've been waiting for since I got my PS3. When I got my PS3 it wasn't much longer and GOW 2 was in it. I wanted it to be on PS3 but understood why it remained on the PS2. Now all my anticipation is almost over. I finally get to play the game I wanted to see in the PS3 glory! I cant wait!

Sony had better release God of War III and Gran Turismo 5 as a hardware console bundle, together with sweet console packaging. Perhaps the Collector's Edition bundled with a 120 GB or 250 GB PS3.

If they do that and make several hundreds of thousands of them, PS3 console sales will be through the roof.

"Dear Playstation. My friends don't have a PS3 yet, but they really want God of War III and Gran Turismo 5. So what do you have planned that will allow them to save money AND get these awesome games?"

Why do you need more info when you get to play it in a month?

If you have any doubt this game will be epic the obviously you havnt played the first two. Even if it followed the suite of the first two games, it would be great. But from playing the demo, this is a whole new beast. Trust me.

Besdies that a trailor is supposed to give you a glimpse at what the game has to offer. Its supposed to pull you in an never let you go. It comleted that task, of anyone in there right mind. This trailor shows the engine working which was absolutely brilliant in the fight on the titans back. If your not awed by that then not many things get your attention. What am I even doing, you complain about everything anyways, why bother!?

The thing they have to hide is what could be the greatest game of the generation. If I was a dev. yeah I'd let some things slip to get the people excited but why spill it all?


Second you seen screenshots? wow. When those screens are put into motion we are seeing the engine work, were seeing those weapons put into action, we're seeing what we will be playing. I never seen those screens but regardless I'd much rather see them in action.

If your not impressed with that engine running, that we just seen in that trailor your nuts.

i thought the trailer was pretty bad ass like how they showed off some better gameplay of the new enemies but i do wish they would of shown new weapons we haven't seen yet but i can understand why they didn't.Ive been wondering, even though they said its the end of the GOW series do u think they will be making a dlc for it like EA did with Dante Inferno.

I hope they dont honestly.

I want the full game on my disc, and I want to play through it, and say Wow that was an epic ending. And 2 months down the road they release dlc, and I have to think to my self why this, why? I dont want to feel like it wasnt complete upon hopefully Kratos Victoy over the gods.

Besides that the game is somewhere up towards 15 hours long. Thats way more gampley than most games in this genre. so I think Santa Monica took that into consideration when making this game. They wanted this to be the end, and they wanted it to be long enough to satisfy.
