Sony Pictures Television Launches God of War: Betrayal
Sony Pictures Television announced today that God of War: Betrayal, the mobile debut of Sony's Playstation 2 uber-franchise, is now available on Verizon's Get it Now service, with other carrier launches to follow in coming months.
The game picks up immediately after the events of God of War II, with anti-hero Kratos waging "a bloody campaign" against the Greek Gods themselves. To effectively reproduce the fluid combat found in the console iterations, a cutting-edge mobile character animation engine was developed by Sony.
"We are committed to bringing to market innovative mobile properties and the launch of God of War: Betrayal is testament to that dedication," Eric Berger, vice president of mobile entertainment, Sony Pictures Television said in a statement.
"By bringing this popular Sony Computer Entertainment America title to Verizon Wireless customers, we will both expand the franchise to gamers on the mobile platform, and provide a thrilling and satisfying gaming experience to the existing God of War fans."
