Remaster sees Kratos making his current-gen debut.
Sony has just confirmed that God of War III is heading to PlayStation 4, with the PS3 classic getting the 1080p remaster treatment. It was also confirmed that the game is expected to see release on July 17. Here's the official press release:
God of War III Remastered brings the epic battles and carnage to life with stunning graphics, 1080p gameplay and an elaborate plot that once again sees Kratos at the center of destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him.
Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III Remastered allows players to take on the role of the fearless ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he rises from the depths of Hades to the heights of Mt. Olympus in order to seek his bloody revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades and an array of weapons and magic, Kratos must take on mythology's deadliest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.
Alongside the announcement we also got a new trailer and some screens, which you can see in all their glory below. It's also worth noting that this announcement comes almost ten years to the day since the first God of War game was released, so it's certainly a happy birthday to Kratos.
