I think we're probably past the point of hype concerning God of War III ; there likely isn't a single solitary unbiased gamer out there who doesn't believe this game will be fantastic. But now that we've solidified that, how's about checking on some new gameplay details?
They come from the latest edition of PlayStation: The Official Magazine, and there are plenty . What do you expect when the game in question is on the cover? What may be most intriguing about this new information is the addition of the enemy grappling: according to lead combat designer Adam Puhl, Kratos will be able to stick his blades into a foe – be they on the ground or in the air – pull them to him, and unleash a new flurry of attacks. Essentially, it's a springboard to bigger and better combos; we're reminded of Nero's ability in Devil May Cry 4 . And speaking of blades, there will be a total of four primary weapons in the game (including the default and very familiar set of blades), and we also learn that magic "will have more gameplay [than magics in previous titles]." …no idea what that means, but it sounds cool! Lastly, they go on to talk about a few new battle scenarios, including a particularly awesome one versus Hades. Evidently, the fight occurs in a "circular space" filled with souls that Hades can fling at Kratos and at some point, the boss even attempts to steal the hero's soul. Okay, Shang-Tsung.
So anyway, we're certain there's more to come and there's definitely a lot more info in that article, so grab a copy of the magazine when you get the chance. GoWIII is gonna be something very, very special.
