New Ghost of Sparta footage is here.

Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I posted anything. Many things have been going on lately and just haven't had a chance to update this blog. Well the team at Ready at Dawn have been working hard on getting Ghost of Sparta ready for it's november release. I had a chance to play through the Beta version of the game and I think you guys will be happy with the end result. There are some really cool story moments in the game and there is particularly one character that I pesonally wish to once again see someday. Check out some new footage of the demo including Kratos new Spartan Shield and Spear.


Here Kratos takes care of King Midas

Remember when you guys asked about Atlantis being in GOW3? well this is why we didn't Add it, because we knew the PSP sequel would take place there.

Thanks Bruno!
When will we see something new from your team?

rocky said...

thx for the upadte bruno,can't wait to play ghost of sparta,can we expect ur new game at e3 2011?

Bruno Velazquez said...

Well, it might be too soon to talk about what we are working on next, but I can safely say that we all know that the fans will expect a better and bigger experience than GOW3 and we are doing everything that we can to make our next game better. As soon as I can talk more I will let you guys know.
For now I will keep you guys updated about Ghost of Sparta. Please stay tuned!

rocky said...

you are absolutely right Bruno,gow3 is the best game I've ever played and we expect a LOT from you guys,keep up the good work

rocky said...

also i expect Sony Santa Monica's next game to max out the ps3 in the way god of war 2 maxed out the ps2,leaving our eyeballs popped

I know it would be pointless to ask if you're making a new IP, or a GOW game, but I'll tell you that I would be fine with either. I'd love to see more of Kratos, but at the same time, I'd like to see what else Sony Santa Monica can come up with.

One thing though, I saw an interview with Stig talking about the Gaia boss battle that was taken out from the game. He said something about maybe releasing that footage on the internet so people could see what it would've been like. I know I sure as hell would like to see it!

rocky said...

Bruno,i noticed that ghost of Sparta also credits Sony Santa Monica studios,can u tell us why?are u guys helping ready at dawn with the graphics or story or everything?

taif said...

its good to have u back Bruno

any news about god of war 3 dlc announcment soon

can u please tell us if sony santa monica well release a dlc for god of war 3

also cant wait for ur new game :)

Bruno Velazquez said...

@EDK1010: You are right, I can't really talk about what we are doing next but the team here is working hard as of right now for sure.

As far as the Gaia footage.....I would just say that you should stay put....

@rocky: We gave them feedback whenever they needed any and we shared some of our assests with them as well. The new triangle attacks for the blades that were in GOW3 are now in Ghost of Sparta for example.

@taif: I can't really say much about DLC but I would not get my hopes to high. Maybe just a little bit though.......

thx for the reply Bruno,and if u haven't already heard,Dante from dmc has got a completely new look,so what do u think about it?

I'm asking this coz i think that we might get a new hero in the next god of war game which might look totally different,but i have utmost faith in u guys

taif said...

ok then thanks for the reply bruno

Anonymous said...

The new dante look is sh... hope santa monica doesn't make the same mistake...

Hi Bruno, thanks
after every gow game there was a secret (isalndofrhodos, spartansstandtall), is there a possibility that after the ghost of sparta release you will tell us more about your new game or at least about the gow3 dlc? thx

Rahat Khan said...

Hi Bruno great job on GoW3. I am literally the biggest GoW fan you have no idea. I know people say they are the biggest fans but seriously i am. If you are working on a game make it huge than GOW3 (i hope your working on something to do with GoW just like 500million people)

taif said...

hey bruno any possible information u can tell us about ghost of sparta

and also is australia getting the same dlc bundle as the usa one because they havent even announced it yet

matiss said...

I'm gonna be honest Bruno: I appreciate Your and all Santa Monica studios work on God of War 3 and how you shaped it, but... I'm really disappointed of GOW3's ending. I mean - it was meant to be trilogy, grand finale, doesn't it? But that what Stig and writer created was open ending and it left more questions than answers. Which is not right.
The ending should have been like Gladiator ending, where Kratos reunites with his family with second chance.
But anyway, thanks for your three years hard work on GOW3. I appreciate it, really.

Hey Bruno you cant tell us what your working on to give us a surprise right?
And please if you guys really are working on something to do with the almight God of War please please make it even bigger and crazier and jawdropping action than GoW3! GoW3 and Uncharted 2 are my favourite games ever. I got many many ideas for the action sequences for GoW and trust me if i told you, you would probably hire me!!! lol.(seriously)
Anyway GREAT JOB. KEEP GoW epicer and brain melting!
All the FANS would LOVE to see the GREAT Kratos back epicer and crazier!! You got our support Mate! =]
p.s. If you talented people added even more detail on each and every character, thats like oscar winning for Sony Santa Monica Studios!!!!

Bruno Velazquez said...

@Rocky: I saw the new trailer for DmC and Dante's new look. To be honest I have to wait and see more of the game to make a judgement. I hope that they have a really great and compelling reason to change the look of the character however other than they just felt he neede a change. One thing that does concern me is the following: DMC 1-4= 60 frames of smooth action and very responsive controls.
Heavenly Sword= very low frame rate.
Enslaved Demo= 30 frames at best.
New DmC= Frame rate???
For this new game to feel like a DmC game it has to run at a high frame rate. This is why Bayonetta runs frames atat very high frame rate.

@taif: Ghost of Sparta takes place right at the end of GOW and before GOW2. The game will rveal some untold secrets about Kratos story and his past as well. If you enjoyed the firts PSP GOW game then you will love this one as well. I am not sure about what bundles will be available in Europe and Australia at this time but keep your eyes open for news. There will be at least one surprise related to Ghost of Sparta, so stay put.

@matiss: Thanks for playing GOW3 all the way to the end. I understand what you are saying about the ending. I'll just say that it was challenging and difficult to create an ending that would satisfy everyone. I do like your Gladiator idea however, that could have been a nice moment to finally see Kratos at peace.

@Everyone: Rest assured that whatever it is that we are working on next, we will work our hardest to make the best game possible and make our fans happy.

Tahnks Bruno, hope you make the new game GOW game at least longer than gow3 (8 hours :(...to short...
Look at Castlevania: 20+ hours, that`s how it should be...

rocky said...

thx for the reply Bruno,in a new interview with hiphopgamer stig said that your team has just started to learn how to do 'shit' on the ps3 so does that mean that your next game will push the ps3 as hard as god of war 2 pushed the ps2?sorry couldn't resist

Anonymous said...

Hey Bruno is it possible for SSMS's next game to have even better graphics than GoW3? If so PLEASE PLEASE DO!!! That will be truly out of this universe!!
p.s. add even more beautiful scenery!

Anonymous said...

better graphics??? why? gow3 graphics are really good to me. don`t need better graphics, just a new gow game, with a good story and more hours of gameplay, the graphics can stay the same...

rocky said...

@ anonymous:stig said they are using only 50-60% of their engine power for god of war 3 and now he says that their team is just learning to do 'shit' on the ps3,so the graphics are bound to improve i just wanna know if they are considering maxing out their engine and the ps3

rocky said...

no one said that the graphics of god of war 3 are bad,but we all know that if they can pull off visuals and gameplay at the same time like god of war 2 on the ps2 then they can do a LOT more with the ps3

Anonymous said...

@rocky
sure, but i hope they make the next game longer than 8 hours whit a better story instead of spending time on awsome graphics...hope you know what i mean.

rocky said...

@anonymous: i think they can do both without sacrificing anything,just look at god of war 2 better visuals and length than god of war

Bruno Velazquez said...

Our next game will have more improvements on the graphics side for sure. We alredy have some pretty cool vitas and backgrounds that look better than our last game.

As far as the lenght of the game, 20+ hours in Castlevania sounds awesome. I am going to play that game for sure, I just hope that there are enough new mechanics and weapons to keep it interesting for those 20 hours. Sometimes I prefer a shorter game with a well paced and awesome experience that a really long, repetitive game.

I'll post my thoughts on Castlevania after I beat it.

Anonymous said...

BRUNO please give us a hint about your next game consult with boss and ask if you can give us a little clever clue!=[

rocky said...

thx for the reply Bruno,castlevania is looking awesome as well especially the boss battles,hope the game is as good as it looks

rocky said...

BRUNO, can u plz tell us whether there will be any titan not necessarily titan gameplay in ghost of Sparta?

Thanks Bruno for not forgetting the fans!

Hi Bruno, can you tell us in whic time your new game plays? Is it an action-adventure (hope so)?
Hope your not making a shooter game.

Anonymous said...

PLEASE DONT MAKE A SHOOTER!

Anonymous said...

I would be ok if its a shooter if its along the lines of bio shock infinite as the game play trailer was awesome, but no matter what in 10 years tops you have to come back for a God of War game again.

Anonymous said...

new trailer looks awesome

Anonymous said...

yes it does!
the new minotaur looks great.
so Bruno, can you now tell us a little bit more about your new game or the GOW3 DLC?
Will there be more surprises? perhaps after beating Ghost of Sparta? a new announcement? a new website? or like a "coming soon" on the back of the cover? i hope so, it is a GOW tradition. Thanks

the new minotaur looks better than that one in GOW3...
