The God of War III Remastered release date is almost here, bringing the fun of the God of War games to the PS4. This is one of the games that PS4 owners have been hoping for since the upgraded console was announced, and it is especially tempting for new PlayStation owners who skipped the PS3 and are looking for a chance to play through a classic with updated graphics.
Originally released over five years ago, God of War III is coming back to the PlayStation to deliver a single player experience that many PS3 owners remember fondly.
Players control Kratos against a range of enemies drawn from Greek mythology including centuars, harpies, cyclopes, Sirens, Gorgons and more. There are boss battles and puzzles to master as you work through the game.
Here is a look at the most important things to know about God of War III Remastered right ahead of the release date.
