News has been popping up around the net about a secret message in God of War 3, unlocked when you earn a Platinum trophy. The trophy description features a URL, which points gamers towards what appears to be a teaser website. It's really exciting - look:
OK, so it's actually rather dull. At present, it simply depicts an ocean scene with mud to the bottom-left, while a thunderstorm beats down. Therte's been some speculation that it's the platform Kratos throws himself from in the first game, but it doesn't look rocky enough to us. So what is this teasing? You don't have to be Ace Ventura to come to the conclusion that there's something God of War-related on the way. But what?
This is, sadly, the least likely outcome. We're not going to discuss where the plot could go at this point in time because a lot of people are still playing it. But it would take, at the very least, a full year to make a new PS3 game, even with the engine and assets all in place. So...
Specifically, an epilogue chapter. It's well-documented that the game's length was cut a little before completion, so we could be getting those levels back from the cutting room floor. That's very likely.
This too is very likely. The first game was critically very well-received and was a fantastic showcase for the machine's capabilities. Considering Chains of Olympus had a similar teaser site before it was announced, this is very likely. Also it's been a sufficiently long time since the last one for a sequel to be developed.
There's further evidence to support this. While the Spartan shield in the top right is acting as a countdown timer of some sort (apparently filling each of its quadrants with blood over time), it also features four Spartan helmets in its design. Could this be part of the new game's HUD?
Truth is, nobody outside of Sony knows what it is yet. But we reckon it's most likely... a new PSP game. Does that excite you? We know you love PSP.
