Sony released a God Of War Collection in North America last month, and announced the God of War III Ultimate Edition, also just for North America. For PAL territories, including Australia, Sony is going one better.
Instead, we're getting the God Of War Ultimate Trilogy Edition, essentially a God Of War III special edition that brings together both the Collection and the Ultimate Edition in one box. It will come packaged in a sculpted replica of Pandora’s Box and Sony plans to include the following items inside:
* God of War III * God of War Collection (God of War and God of War II, remastered in HD, running at 60 fps, with Trophy support, all on one Blu-ray Disc)
Extra game content downloadable via PlayStation Network: * God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges to complete * Dominus character skin * Apollo character skin * Phantom of Chaos character skin * Forgotten Warrior character skin
Special video and audio bonus content: * God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary. This is a full-length documentary downloadable via PlayStation Network detailing the history of the God of War franchise * God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game * God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War
Additional content: * Artbook * Postcards
Pricing details and an exact release date are yet to be confirmed. God Of War III is due for release in Australia in March. Below is a "work in progress" mock-up of the edition's content.
UPDATE: We've learned that this limited edition is in fact exclusive to EB Games. No word on the price as yet.
