God of War 3 Teases ... Something



Players who have earned a platinum trophy in God of War 3 [http://www.amazon.com/God-War-III-Playstation-3/dp/B000ZK9QCS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278964175&sr=1-1] have uncovered a curious teaser site that seems to be counting up to something.

Grabbing the platinum trophy of God of War 3 requires some serious dedication, but those with the determination and time to obtain it have been redirected to a hidden section of the God of War site: 'Spartans Stand Tall' [http://www.godofwar.com/spartansstandtall/], which shows what looks like a view of the sea from a cliff side as rain lashes down. In the top-right corner of the site is a circular device with a scrawled symbol on it and a track that seems to be filling up with blood.

The device seems to be a quarter full at the time of writing, possibly relating to the number of people who have unlocked the Platinum trophy, or maybe just counting down time. Either way, it's an intriguing mystery, especially as the symbol on the device seems to be lambda [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambda], the meaning of which isn't immediately obvious.

What could this mean? Could it be teasing a new handheld game like Chains of Olympus [http://www.amazon.com/God-War-Chains-Olympus-Sony-PSP/dp/B000R3BN4M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278964205&sr=1-1]? Given that Kratos throwing himself into the sea is an important part of the God of War canon, this seems like it could be pretty darn significant. Keep watching this space for more news.

Thanks to [user]Hubilub[/user] for the tip!

Lambda?

God of War: Half Life?

I kid, I kid.

What I'm guessing is that it could be a game about Kratos's Early history, when he was a general in the Spartan Army.

I really hope it is not God of War 4, because really, where are they suppose to take the series now? It would just drag the series.

Yeah, this might point to some sort of prequel, that or Santa Monica are releasing a new Bratz game...

"In an effort to get rid of Gordon Freeman once and for all, the Combine have sent him back in time to ancient Greece. Here he must team up with the God of War, Kratos to find his way home."

The worst part is that it's probably already part of someone's fanfiction portfolio =_=

Probably to another time period. Chinese God of War, anyone?

That's all I thought of when I looked at the site.

I'd prefer Egyptian God of War, or hey, maybe Norse..

The lambda stood for Lacedaemon (the Ancient Greek for Sparta)or Laconia, and was painted on Spartan shields, which is what the centre of the symbol appears to be.

Doesn't look like a lambda to me. But what do I know? I didn't even recognize it as a cliff until I stared at it for a while.

It's a capital lambda.

Well, firstly

And secondly, what if the Lambda is actually a hint for Half-Life 2: Episode 3 being part of a crossover with God of War? I know that this is near impossible, but you must admit that it would be freaking epic.

Oh, thank you. I was confused for a little while there.

I don't know if you guys saw this but in the right corner of the water there appears to be a figment/reflection of Kratos or a face amerging out of the water.
I might be imagining but look real hard and you might see it.
But know me I'm probabaly incorrect any way.
But i say it most likely be the PSP version of the game.

I learnededed something today! Yay! That was actually surprisingly interesting, cheers :D

I'd just like to echo that a Norse or Egyptian God of War would be utterly amazing. Even more so if it was still Kratos slaughtering his way through other pantheons.

And now I'm really ashamed over thinking it was the letter Alpha >.> Shows how much I know about the Greek alphabet.

Didn't actually think this would get a news article though. Hurray for that!
