201w ago - Today SCEE's Senior European Product Manager Thach Quach has unveiled the God of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition PS3 Box alongside some additional details on its contents.
To quote: Following my recent blog post, I'm really excited to share the design of the SCEE God of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition box with you guys. I hope you like it, let me know your thoughts!
The Ultimate Trilogy Edition can be pre-ordered in selected retailers across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. It's a limited run so make sure you pre-order it before it's sold out!
This very special edition comes in a high-end, sculpted replica of Pandora's Box with an epic outer box which features an acetate window: you can actually see Pandora's box before you even open it!
Once open, you will find the following items:
• God of War III (of course!)
• God of War Collection (gentle reminder, this is God of War and God of War II, remastered in HD, running at 60 fps, with Trophy support, all on one Blu-ray Disc)
• Extra game content downloadable via PlayStation Network:
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges to complete
• Dominus character skin
• Apollo character skin
• Phantom of Chaos...
According to PSU, a variety of content can be unlocked, including a dynamic PS3 theme, in-game costumes for Kratos, and PC desktop wallpapers.
To quote: "In the following Creating the Chimera documentary you'll not only enjoy Sony Santa Monica describe their enemy character design process, but also at around the seven-minute mark you'll spot the latest build of the game.
Though the quality of the video is not up to scratch, you may notice improved lighting with new sunlight effects, and also the latest inclusion of object motion blur, making the gameplay all the more realistic."
