God of War II ended with Kratos, Gaia and the Titans marching towards Olympus. God of War III will conclude the story of Kratos' attempt to destroy Olympus. Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.
At E3 2009, the God of War III demo was revealed. The demo showed Kratos on the cliffs of Mount Olympus battling the undead, a centaur, a chimera, and a cyclops. Kratos does not fight Helios, but he rips the head off of Helios gaining a new ability called "Helios Beam" which can be used as a lantern in dark areas, a beam to blind enemies, and to reveal hidden secrets. It is also revealed that Kratos can shoot harpies with his fire bow and use them to get across gaps that are too large to jump or glide across with the Wings of Icarus. In the demo, it is revealed that Kratos keeps the Golden Fleece and the Wings of Icarus from God of War II, however, the Blade of Olympus's whereabouts are unknown. The hefty 2.6GB demo is currently available on the PSN Store.
