OVERVIEW

In 2005, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Santa Monica Studios introduced
God of War®, which many publications considered the best videogame of 2005 with over a dozen “Game of the Year Awards.”  Then in Spring 2007, the original award-winning development team introduced God of War® II, the second chapter of this sprawling odyssey that went on to receive critical acclaim and with a 94% rating on GameRankings, supported with the following review scores from leading gaming media outlets: IGN - 9.7, GameSpy - 5/5, 1up - 9.5/10, Gamezone - 9.5/10, GameInformer - 9.75/10, and GamePro - 5/5, and spurred more than one million retail orders prior to launch.

Now, from the creative team that brought you the Daxter™ on the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system, Santa Ana-based Ready At Dawn® Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Santa Monica Studios bring you God of War®: Chains of Olympus for the PSP system.  Developed from the outset as an original story, God of War: Chains of Olympus delivers highly detailed graphics, incredible animation detail and yet another adventure in the dark and brutal world of Greek mythology that fans of the God of War® franchise have come to know and love. 

STORYLINE

In God of War, Kratos, after being deceived into killing his wife and daughter, denounced his service to Ares. In order to seek absolution from his past sins, the Ghost of Sparta pledged himself as a champion to the Gods for the years to follow – these brutal crusades, in the name of
Olympus, became legendary throughout the ancient world.

In God of War: Chains of Olympus, Kratos will journey to lands that no mortal has ever walked upon.  With the world plunged in eternal darkness and the Gods rendered powerless, Kratos will  face the most feared creatures of Greek Mythology, and ultimately be forced to choose between his own personal redemption and saving the ancient world from certain destruction.
