Cut Final Encounter In GoWIII Could Return As DLC
As some of you may have heard, part of the final act of God of War III had to be cut from the final production. The questions you probably have now are, "why?" and "will we ever see it as extra content?"
Well, Kotaku wanted answers to those very same questions, so they presented them to GoWIII director Stig Asmussen. He was a guest on Kotaku Talk Radio and he first mentioned that initially, the team had prepared more Titan encounters but at some point in the development process, they became "overwhelmed." In an effort to avoid any spoilers, Asmussen stated:
"There was a pretty large thing that we chopped from the ending that I had regrets about, but then something we added at the end that helps make up for it a little bit, and helps make it more personal. We had titan encounters in the game, we had a pretty big one planed for the end and we got pretty far with it it, but it was just one of those deals where we just had so much."
However, although they had to cut that content, he says they might just include it in a piece of DLC at some point in the future. And if they do decide to do that, "it would be free." And don't think for one second that SCEA opted not to include this stuff because they were lazy; it was very hard for Asmussen and Co. to do without, as he explains:
"Those things required so many resources and they're so hard to work on. It was literally the hardest thing I've ever been involved with before in my life and we just couldn't do more. We couldn't. It was to the point where we had to remove one just to invest time in the other ones that we had in the game, to get those right. We could have had more, and everything else would have suffered."
Don't worry, Stig. We doubt people will complain too much.
