Sony has announced a remastered version of God of War 3 will be available on the PlayStation 4 on July 14th.

God of War 3 Remastered is being released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the God of War franchise. The game will feature 1080p graphics and will allow players to share images from within the game through a new Photo Mode. Similar to the Photo Mode in The Last of Us Remastered, players will be able to choose the frame, filter, and bloom of their image, among other things.

Further details on what more will be included in God of War 3 Remastered are scarce at the moment, but I'll be sure to update this story as more information comes from Sony.

      Will 1080p make a big difference? Don't care about a photo mode at all-that's a terrible bullet point for reselling a game imo. If there's a store that has a trade-in program, where the ps4 version retails @$40 but they'll give you $15-$20 trade-in credit for the ps3 version, then I'd buy it.

      Very cool, I hope they bring 4 over as well(really dig that one). Still really all I want in a bran new God of War title for the PS4 I suppose this is to tide us over till that comes out.

        Ascension? That had some cool elements like decay/restore item, but was mostly hugely inferior to 3 in terms of gameplay and spectable.

        You really are excited for every single game release.

      the game breaks down after the hades match, i'd much rather see GoW2. probably some of the best pacing i've seen in a game

                      Then I'll really get killed...RotJ is my fav (Bobba Fett...what can I say). The order from fav to least for me is Ep 6,5,4,3,2,1...just now realized I like them in reverse order exactly.

                I didn't think it was bad at all, just unnecessary. The pacing was off, too (insanely hard fights too often).

                I still think it was decent.

                  It's at least bad in comparison to the previous games, especially two. Pacing is first and foremost with GoW, because it makes you deal with an action game, and then slows it down to make you figure out puzzles. GoW4 was bad at all of that. GoW2 was probably the most perfect pacing I've seen in a game, it's just a big drop off.

                    The one thing I hate about all of them is the shitty gauntlet with no checkpoints near the end. It's just a ball ache grind.

        While the Hades fight is one of my favorite boss fights ever,I can't agree that the game falls apart after that. The fight with Chronos was awesome,as was the fight with Hercules.

      Of course it is. Why make new games when you can just remaster the ones from last gen!

      I'll probably pick this up once it's cheap, same as The Last of Us. Even better if it imports your saves from PSN, the 1/2 remaster sadly didn't.

      I finished GoW 1 and 2 on God and Titan mode, respectively. GoW 3 was un-beatable on Chaos. I made it to Zeus. Probably spent a solid 6+ hours trying to beat him over several sessions. Eventually gave up when I realized there wasn't even a Trophy for it.

      I'll rebuy this. This series is just that good. More HOLY SHIT moments than in any other game barring bf1942 shackbattles.

      I understand the business reasons for this, but goddamn this console generation is fucking bizarre.

        March 20, 2015 4:22 PM

        Yes and no. The Xbox 360 was the clear leader last generation and there are quite a few people who only owned that device and never owned a PS3. That is less common on enthusiast websites like this... but a lot of slightly less hardcore gamers only own one console. I consider myself fairly 'hardcore' but I also never owned a PS3 (or PS2 for that matter - because.... I was bitter about the Dreamcast). Anyways... all these remakes are awesome for me because I'm getting to play all the key games I wanted to play on PS3 but was never able to. A lot of people seem to be whining about the remakes... but I'm happy about them.

          I can understand your point of view.
          but lets be honest, do you think ALL of these remakes PS# exclusives or multiplatforms are for the ones that got left behind?
          The money isn't there?
          The cost to re-make these are not for the "ones that got away" crowd, but more for the hardcore WITH the benefit of picking up stragglers.
          Why God of War 3 then? Besides it being the easier of them all (supposedly) to revamp.
          but now I just Batman Arkham City and Asylum are getting the remaster treatment as well. These games where multiplatform and are still readily available.
          Whats the excuse? Don't own the 360 or PS3. The disc is damaged (which by the way you can re-buy for pennies).
          No, this is a money grab. Just plain and simple.
          Its the biggest double-dipping money making scheme since DLC.
          and until we as a collective tell all of these companies to stop BS and put backwards compatibility back well be subject to morning laughter, as we read what other great game gets remastered.
