RS Links: God of War 3 was meant to be a FPS


God of War 3 is currently in development for the PlayStation 3 and it should be published sometime in 2010. At the CGSociety website there’s an interesting article about the game, in which SCEA Art Director Ken Feldman revealed that they though about making GoW3 a first person shooter:

“I tried unsuccessfully to convince Stig to make ‘God of War III’ a first-person shooter. Kratos could have some truly badass huge weapons that rip gods to shreds. Unfortunately he didn’t see the genius in the idea.”

Really? It sounds like a joke, but who knows? We had 3 Metroid games in first person view after all..

    It has to be a joke :). The “genius” line just seems to give it away.

    Then again, can you imagine a GoW FPS? That might be pretty cooooool. Maybe after they wrap up the trilogy we can get a spin-off.

      Interesting, probably the idea was scrapped soon, but it would have been nice to see how it would have played that way. Thanks Robert! :)

      I really hope that they will have a bonus video with the “Lost Stuff” to unlock in the final GoW3, as they did with the previous games

      Thanks to the link Robert :) Saving this for the (possible) post about GoW3 beta.. and this reminds me: did someone already finished the game? We need to know if there’s a bonus “making of / lost stuff” video to unlock!
