Upgraded version of ‘God of War’ series coming to PS3

Sony Computer Entertainment America announced today a new and exclusive PlayStation 3 offering for the God of War franchise, God of War Collection. 

Scheduled for release this holiday season, God of War Collection will feature reworked versions of both God of War and God of War II on a single Blu-ray Disc at full 1280 x 720 resolution.

Both games, which were originally developed for PlayStation 2, have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics running at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring PlayStation Network trophy support to the franchise for the first time (included for both games).

God of War Collection will be competitively priced at $39.99. And once you’ve finished the first two, you have God of War III to look forward to in March 2010.

God of War synopsis: Set in the dark world of ancient Greek mythology, players take on the role of Kratos, a Spartan warrior. Plagued by the nightmares of his past, the ash covered warrior would do anything to be free of his debt to the Gods and the memories that haunt him. For ten years he has labored for Olympus, now on the verge of losing all hope, the Gods have given him one last task. Destroy Ares, the God of War. Armed with the deadly chained Blades of Chaos, Kratos will have to overcome armies of mythological monsters, legions of undead soldiers, and amazingly dangerous and brutal landscapes.

God of War II synopsis: God of War saw Kratos, a mortal warrior, set upon an epic quest to dethrone a God. But his journey did not end there.  In God of War II, Kratos sits atop his Olympus throne, as the new God of War – far more ruthless than Ares ever was.  To end his continued torment, Kratos must journey to the far reaches of the earth and defeat untold horrors and alter that which no mortal, or god has ever changed… his fate. God of War II sets an epic stage for a devastating mythological war to end all wars.
