We may have a new God of War announcement coming soon. You see, in God of War II if you score a 999,999 point combo, a URL flashes on the screen. This URL in fact: TheIslandofRhodes.org Interestingly, the title of the site (that shows up on the tab) says ‘The City of Rhodes’.
If you Wikipedia ‘Rhodes’ you find this info:
“In Pindar’s ode, the island was said to be born of the union of Helios the sun god and the nymph Rhode, and the cities were named for their three sons.”
Sounds mythological right? But what does that have to do with Kratos (who’s glaring at the screen on the website. Well…The Island of Rhodes is home to one of the Seven World Wonders, The Colossus, Which also happens to be the opening boss in God of War II.
Hooray! Now we understand how the name The Island of Rhodes is connected to the God of War universe! But what is the site counting down to? One would make the obvious guess at the pretty much confirmed PSP, or PS3 sequels. But if you look at the bottom of the page, it list Playstation 2, and gives the same rating for God of War II.
This is going to be interesting to see what becomes of this.
