Kratos gets ready to break free from the Chains of Olympus on March 4, 2008 according to Gamespot. They were given the information while on a visit to developer Ready at Dawn today. The game still has no price or rating, but thank Olympus we can finally grasp a release date. Hopefully the launch of God of War: Chains of Olympus will herald the God of War III announcement.

Ready at Dawn is also aware that March is a long way off. Beyond the game's demo releasing sometime this month, which we had a chance to get some hands-on with at E3, those who already signed up for the demo on the official website will receive "a special-edition demo UMD containing a portion of a playable level as well as additional content, including a behind-the-scenes video of the game's development." Those who didn't sign up for the demo UMD can get their hands on a standard demo featuring only the level portion later this year. Although we're a little bummed that Chains of Olympus won't be out this year, at this point we take games coming out early '08 as a blessing.
