On March 13, we reported that God of War 2 would be coming to the PlayStation 2 next year. This was confirmed today in a press release from Sony and at the Game Developers Conference in a video. The sequel to God of War, Game Freaks 365’s Game of the Year Runner-Up in 2005, is being developed by SCEA’s Santa Monica Studios. God of War 2 is scheduled for release in Q1 2007.
In God of War 2, players retake the role of Kratos. Armed with the deadly blades and blistering rage, players will be aided by new breath-taking magic and new brutal combat moves. The journey will take them through vividly striking environments where they will be faced with a labyrinth of challenging puzzles and mini-games intricately woven into the story. The violent world of Greek mythology will come to life in gory detail as Kratos encounters new mythical characters, and compete in epic boss battles in his quest.
