God of War: Ghost of Sparta hits SPIKE TV tonight, Comic-Con Saturday

49 2

Let’s cut to the chase, shall we? Kratos would want it that way.

Tonight, GameTrailers TV is hosting a special God of War: Ghost of Sparta preview on SPIKE TV. The episode will showcase new gameplay video and details on the eagerly anticipated action epic being developed by Ready At Dawn Studios, aka the folks behind God of War: Chains of Olympus.

The SPIKE TV special will air tonight at 12:30am Pacific Time (check SPIKE.com for local listings).

God of War Ghost of Sparta

Also, if you’re attending Comic-Con in San Diego, the Ready At Dawn team has a special treat for you. Drop by the San Diego Convention Center on Saturday to catch the “The World That is God of War” discussion panel and Q&A session — anyone with a badge should be able to attend, space willing. Here are the full details for the Comic-Con panel:

The World That is God of War — Ghost of Sparta Panel Q&A

  • Time: Saturday, July 24: 1:00 — 2:00PM
  • Location: San Diego Convention Center (Room 7AB)
  • 111 West Harbor Drive
    San Diego, CA 92101

  • Description: Ru Weerasuriya and Dana Jan are back, along with their talented team at Ready At Dawn Studios, to expand upon this blockbuster mythological world with God of War: Ghost of Sparta. Join Ru, Dana, and team for this one-on-one interview and Q&A session.

Finally, in related news, I got a chance to go one-on-one with Ghost of Sparta at the NYC PlayStation media day earlier this week. The action is classic God of War: fast, brutal, and epic. Kratos was packing plenty of new gear, too. The Spartan Spear and Shield grants Kratos a longer reach and the ability to hurl spears at distant foes, though his trademark Blades of Chaos still hold the edge in overall attack speed. I also experimented with the Eye of Atlantis, a new magical attack that gushes a stream of chain lightning at nearby enemies.

While you’re waiting for the SPIKE TV special and Comic-Con panel to start, you might want to take another look at the first Ghost of Sparta gameplay footage below. And yeah, that’s running on a PSP. Wait until you see it in person, free from web video compression.

  • Can’t wait for this on the PSP! Step your game up!!

  • SWEET. :D

    Will watch. …until God of War gets shown. xD

  • why waste time on this? make God of War 4!!!

  • Can’t wait. But I really hope you guys mean NEW footage. As in “not the footage seen in the trailer above”.

  • Will it be downloadable on PSN store as a PSN game. Cuz I hate PSP and its one joystick.

  • I can’t wait for this game, another game that I will actually finish on the PSP.

  • It says 12AM for me here on the East Coast, so some of us will see it earlier I guess?

    Hmmm…

    I can’t wait for this game. BETTER come out on PSN. I am starting to like downloaded games…

    Also the PSP should have Mirror’s Edge.

  • Also, hopefully the game is a bit more polished by launch… There be a lot of screen tearing in that little clip above… O_O

  • i think it’s actually 12:30 am eastern, 9:30 pm pacific

  • Why can’t you let the poor bastard Rest In Peace. >:[

  • To APVangeliLHS:

    I noticed that when the trailer was released awhile ago, too. I hope it’s cleaned up, as well.

  • Awesome! will definitely be tuning in to see this :D Cant wait for the game to come out.

  • ok this is more like it , so i asked Mark ( SCEA Marketing Manager) on the LBP2 pre order goodies post about the God of War: Ghost of Sparta PRE ORDER DLC , is there any way we ( PSP GO ) owners can get the DLC at the same time as the other PSP owners ? i mean its a first party title and 1 of sony’s biggest franchises EVER , why dont you guys give us the option to pre order the game thru PSN so we can get all the PRE ORDER DLC ? as a LONG TIME God of War FAN i dont wanna miss any of that so please give us the option to get it all , its my most anticipated PSP title EVER !!!!!!!!

  • @Atomika14

    Well, the new intense dynamic camera angles are a nice touch…

    And some games so have slight tearing anyway, like wipEout Pulse during rapid scenes…

  • What is this DLC I keep hearing about? Is it any good? It isn’t worth anything to me if it was something like lame costumes…

  • WOW. That’s lame…

    “If you don’t have a PS3 you won’t know the whole story.”

    Thanks, some of us don’t have almost $400 lying around.

    Pfft.

  • Was that all?

    There was like 6 minutes of stuff… Most of it stuff we’ve seen before or them talking about crap. :-/

    I thought we’d be seeing some live gameplay! :(

  • But from what was there, it was beautiful! :D

  • God of War Ghost of Sparta is going to be the best game f all

  • of all

  • How many more God of War games do you have to make???

    The story is already over with God of War 3!

  • Is the pre-order bonus also available in Canada?

  • Can’t wait!
    My hubby is like Kratos lol ;)

  • Meh. It looks like more of the same.

  • Is there going to be any connectivity between GOW3 and Ghost of Sparta?

    That would be awesome! Anyways, I can’t wait for this game.

  • Please Sony I never want God of War to end!! its one of your greatest franchise it would be like Nintendo giving up on Zelda so please give us God of War 3 DLC!!

  • คนไทยมีไหมครับเนี้ย

  • @J-DANG

    This game takes place before God of War III, filling in loopholes.

  • Enough with those ultra-cleen screen shots, the PSP doesn’t even does nice anti aliasing. Still I really want this game

  • The PSP doesn’t do anti-aliasing, but games on the PSP ( you have to admit) are freakin awesome to play (most of them) and the graphics look crazy good for a handheld…you gotta admit that.

    I mean handhelds…I remember back in the day were between GameBoy (original fatty with that green and black) and the Sega GameGear (the battery absorber).

    And also, games are about, well games. Graphics are a secondary thing in terms of importance, and well it just so happens that God of War games are always fun and the graphics look amazing.

  • You should read more. They already said that the shots, and footage are from actual PSP game play. I don’t know why people keep pretending like the PSP doean’t absolutly blow everything else in the portable market away! What’s better? DS, with old N64 tech? No, I know, the IPHONE wich doesn’t have just one stick, it has none and crapy graphics in small games!

  • The screen-shots are from the actual game, just not from the PSP hardware. They are from the computer, and are output at insane resolutions. That’s why they look that good.

    But that IS the actual game more or less…

  • There is no conspiricy! People said the same things about the Chains of Olympus screensots, and the game proved them all wrong.

  • Hey Sid, will the GoW team be at PAX?

  • dang it I missed it

  • but I just found it on the internet

  • this is going to be another great game. PSP is having a good year with Metal Gear and Kingdom hearts and now this wow.HMM he said to see it all you need a to have a ps3 also. Good thing i have both.

  • I believe that this will be my 3rd and last game purchase of the year, sadly… There just hasn’t ever been that much…

  • @APVangeliLHS
    What are to talking about? There have been some good titles this year on the psp. This is the first year that I havent been able to catch up on my games.

  • @DaMann22

    Well, all I’ve bought this year has been Metal Gear Solid.

    I’m planning on getting The 3rd Birthday and this.

    :-/ (I’m not into these Japanese RPG’s everyone’s raving over.)

    as a psp owner im very pleased with what is being offered this year , could sony do better? yes!!!! no doubt about it but to say that just hasnt been enough is plain wrong , maybe there hasnt been enough for your taste ( thats something very different ) , just look at the games i mentioned , almost all of them are from different genres ( thats how i like my games ) so at least there has been variety , dont you think?

  • PS3 anyone ??
