228w ago - Today PR and Marketing Manager Andrej Dula of the Czech Republic and Slovakia has shared some pictures of Kratos on the road over European highways.

To quote: If, in the coming weeks, you see drivers with wide open eyes on the European highways, there are two likely explanations:

Either Europe was hit with (another!) severe snowstorm and spring is nowhere in sight, or they have just seen Kratos, the one and only God of War cruising on the road using his massive truck!

PlayStation Czech Republic and Slovakia is paying a tribute to this great franchise which is breaking review scores highs and sales records with an epic God of War III truck. Branded from both sides, it projects a 3D image of Kratos literally jumping out of the truck and into the traffic.

It would be a shame to keep it only to Czech Republic and Slovakia so through a cooperation with a Slovak truck company, the truck will be hitting the roads of mainland Europe until the end of summer, visiting also Austria, Netherlands, Croatia, Ukraine, Poland and Hungary so keep your eyes open for the one and only God of War!

Among many other options, you can customize three areas of your glove with different colors, set both the barrel and handle colors of your bat, and customize your shoe colors. We've also added a field to the General tab that will allow you to determine whether or not your player was born in the U.S. This will determine which roster you would appear on if your player were to be selected for the All-Star Futures Game.





After finishing up your player's look and deciding whether to enter...
