One of Sony’s premiere franchises is making the jump to the PlayStation 4, as the company has announced that God Of War III Remastered is coming to the console. The upgraded port of Sony Santa Monica’s smash release will launch on July 14.
A celebration of the series’ 10th anniversary, God of War III Remastered will feature stunning 1080p graphics and is targeting 60 FPS. The remaster will also boast a Photo Mode, so gamers can snap all the photos they desire of Kratos’ ugly mug.
While not the ideal starting point for those new to the franchise, God of War III received rave reviews back when it launched in 2010. The title brought the tale of Kratos to a temporary close, as he finished the fight he started back in 2005 with the pantheon of Greek gods. Since then, the franchise has seen a prequel released, and a sequel is currently in development.
Honestly, I’m not really sure if this remaster is totally necessary or not. Sure, God of War III is one of the finest experiences on the PlayStation 3, but at a certain point, developers need to move on from remastering every single title. I know I just talked about how I hope to see a remaster of Gravity Rush, but there is a difference between wanting a port of a title stuck on a handheld, and wanting one of a game that moved over a million units.
I’m also a little surprised that Sony isn’t bundling the other God of War games with this one. Heck, if they just bundled this remaster with Ascension, that wouldn’t be a bad deal. Do a Master Chief Collection style of release, but just make sure it works this time around. As it stands now, though, I’m going to be a little disappointed if this is a full-priced release.
