God of War III Director Stig Asmussen has revealed that his team was 'inspired' by the graphical strides made by Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2. Asmussen believes that these games "raised the bar" in terms of graphics and that he hopes God of War III will be thought of "in the same way." Asmussen made these remarks in the latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, which is doing a special on the evolution of God of War III.
"I think we were really scared about [God Of War 3's] visuals up until E3. When we did our press release back in March, we felt pretty good about it. But then we see games that are raising the bar like Uncharted 2 obviously did, and Killzone 2," Asmussen stated. He continued, "I think we just need to make something that, you know, people will talk about in the same way. It's a different game, but we'd be happy at that point."
God of War III is slated for a March 16th release in North America.
