Welcome to Helios: a new God of War level

What is Helios? No, it's not a cell phone. It's a new level in God of War: Chains of Olympus. These brand new screenshots (12 in all) showcase Kratos' carnage once again. Just like Tartarus and Attica before it, these shots look absolutely stunning. In one of the screens, we see Kratos charging the spell acquired from the CoD demo. The lighting and particle effects look stunning, and we're certain that it'll look even better in motion.

There's still a long while before we'll see more of Kratos' new PSP adventure. Until then, check out these new screens:

Tartarus featured in new God of War screenshots

The God of War madness will not stop! Sony's released yet another batch of screenshots from its upcoming Chains of Olympus, this time focusing on Tartarus. There isn't much more to say: these pictures show off Kratos doing what he does best.

Wait, that's it? Even though the demo goes far beyond what we've played of the game so far, we can't help but want more. But that's a good thing: it shows how compelling God of War: Chains of Olympus is. It's easily a system-seller, and will probably become the best title in the entire system's library when it releases next March.

What makes it so compelling? Everything that you know and love about God of War is here on the handheld. The battle system is perfect for hardcore and casual players alike. Button mashing will work in the game, especially in the demo, but there's an appreciable amount of depth to the system. Dodges are activated by holding both shoulder buttons, and blocking is triggered with a single shoulder button. There's a slight pause when you block, akin to God of War 2, which has us thinking a counter system will be implemented later in the game. Each battle is fun, and within no time, you'll be ripping people in half, doing combos, and juggling enemies in the air. It's absolutely accessible and instantly rewarding: ideal for a handheld game.

The UMD demo begins as all Chains of Olympus demos have: with the battle of Attica. After the now-familiar battle with a dragon-esque beast, the demo continues to unfamiliar territory. Yet another boss battle, one with the Persian king Efrit. He utilizes a magic attack that attacks the immediate area around him. While it's easy to get around his wide-sweeping sword, players will have to dodge quickly to avoid the long reach of the magic spell. Once again, we get to see Kratos' brutality at play, and a hint of the story that's about to unfold. The Persian king offers money in exchange for his life, but Kratos won't have any of it. Once again, quick button pressing events are scattered throughout the battles, and the incredibly visceral animations that occur make them still feel as fresh as ever. Kratos' bravado makes him a compelling character still, and seeing him literally make the boss' head explode is gratifying.

It's here: the God of War demo disc

We check our mail and find the God of War: Chains of Olympus demo disc staring back at us. As you read this, we're already playing the game, preparing our impressions. Until then, you'll just have to gawk at these pictures (taken with a camera phone, sorry!).

And don't worry, when we're done with the demo, we'll be giving it away. (Oh, and did we mention that we have three copies to share?)

Uncut footage of Kratos fighting a boss

God of War needs no fancy trailers. It doesn't need clever editing to make it look cool. No, all you need from the franchise is good, uninterrupted gameplay footage. And that's what we have here today. Watch Kratos go mano-a-mano against this Chains of Olympus boss. It doesn't appear to be direct-feed, but it should give a good idea of the kind of fun you can expect from the upcoming UMD demo.

(Oh, and because the finale of this video is pretty brutal, you must be 17 years or older to watch it. See it after the cut.)

[Thanks, Hashbrown_Hunter!]

It was inevitable: GoW demo strikes eBay

When you attach words like "not for resale" and "limited edition" to something, you know it's going to end up on eBay. Already, one overzealous eBay seller has placed his demo disc up for auction. For a free disc, it's getting a pretty penny: 1,150 of them, to be precise.

The seller says "allow 2-3 weeks for delivery." Why? Because it's obvious that they don't have the disc yet. Hopefully, lostmyheadnmind, the high bidder, doesn't mind.

[Thanks, Michael!]

God of War: Chains of Olympus demo disc finally gets shipped

That took long enough.

The God of War: Chains of Olympus Special Edition: Battle of Attica demo disc (also lovingly abbreviated as GOW: COO –SE:BoADD) is going to make its September release date, with only a few days to spare. This demo is quite possibly the most anticipated demo in recent memory, with forums constantly abuzz about its ever-shifting release date. Considering the limited number of copies being printed, it might actually end up being a collector's item (let's see how much it goes for on eBay).

We're eagerly awaiting our demo discs, just like you, and we can't wait to share our impressions of Kratos' upcoming PSP adventure with you.

[Thanks, kspraydad!]

God of War's Tartarus, revealed

See new screenshots in our updated gallery.
This is Tartarus!!!!!

Kratos' upcoming PSP adventure, Chains of Olympus, will go through the depths of Tartarus -- and we have the latest screenshots. Check out Kratos doing what he does best: killing lots of big things.

In addition, check out some of the meticulous art that the team at Ready at Dawn is preparing for its AAA PSP game. There's no shortcuts here folks -- they're putting a lot of effort into this one.

Three new videos of God of War: Chains of Olympus

Sometimes the simplest headlines work the best. God of War: Chains of Olympus may be the most anticipated title on the platform, and seeing new footage of never-before-seen levels is certainly a feast for the eyes. How Ready at Dawn managed to squeeze so much tech into such a small platform we'll never really understand, but we're glad they can do it.

Check out the rest of the videos after the break.
