Developed by Sony Santa Monica, here’s the description for God of War 3 Remastered:

One of the most critically acclaimed games of the last generation, God of War III, has been remastered for the PlayStation 4 system, marking the debut of Kratos on PS4. God of War III Remastered brings the epic battles and carnage to life with stunning graphics, 1080p gameplay targeting 60FPS, and an elaborate plot that once again sees Kratos at the center of destruction as he seeks revenge against the Gods who have betrayed him.

They also talk about the story:

The story of God of War III is the epic conclusion to Kratos’ Greek trilogy. Picking up from the Titan sized cliffhanger of God of War II, God of War III takes Kratos right to the heart of Zeus’ stronghold on his epic quest for vengeance.
