Cut God of War III Ending Could Return as Free DLC

March 15, 2010 Written by Dan Massi

God of War III is an epic game, with massive scale. However, the scale of the game was even bigger during the course of development. Unfortunately, some parts of the game – specifically the ending – were cut. There’s good news to that though.

Stig Asmussen, director of God of War III, has spoken on cut content from the game’s ending. God of War III originally had many Titan encounters in the game, but the work was overwhelming for the development team.

“There was a pretty large thing that we chopped from the ending that I had regrets about, but then something we added at the end that helps make up for it a little bit, and helps make it more personal. We had titan encounters in the game, we had a pretty big one planed for the end and we got pretty far with it it, but it was just one of those deals where we just had so much.”

Although this “large” piece from the ending was cut, it could always return to as DLC. Asmussen revealed that much of the content was already done.

“As far as DLC goes, it might be something we might think about getting out there someday. The pieces are in place, the idea is written. If it’s something we put out there it would be something that would be free.”

God of War III hits stores March 16th in North America, March 18th in Europe, and March 19th in Australia. You can check out our review on the title while you wait for your inevitable purchase.
