Okay, so, remember how leaks and rumours of a new God of War game or a new God of War MMO were in circulation? Turns out, they were true. We contacted Sony Computer Entertainment America and asked them if any of that was true. They told us they were unavailable to comment by responding to our mailing by sending the following e-mail:
I am sorry, but we are currently unavailable to comment on any such rumours.
Please contact us if you need any other information.
This was two days ago. Yesterday, we contacted them again, telling them we wanted to know and that we would not announce it on our website until Sony confirmed it themselves, Sony sent us an e-mail confirming that they were, indeed, working on a fourth God of War game. They gave us some details, and were given permission to reveal some of them.
The game, titled God of War: Rival to Sparta, will be released on the PS3 in late 2013. Yes, the game actually has a sub title, being the first game in the main series to have a subtitle. The game will feature Kratos’ brother, as we all expected, and show how he dealt with all his misadventures during the timespan of the Kratos trilogy- yes, simultaneous timelines.
The game will also feature playable levels for Kratos, Zeus and maybe even a few Titan levels (these Titan levels are just an idea at the development team right now, nothing concrete). The game will also feature more introspection on Kratos and his past, since Sony feels they never “justified Kratos’ anger towards the enemies properly.”
A huge secret about Deimos, Kratos’ brother, will be revealed, something related to family matters.
We have been given a lot more details, but unfortunately, we cannot submit them right now. Please stay with us, we will have more information on this ASAP.
PS: That’s it, suckers, stop getting excited. It’s April Fools.
