Kratos will be hanging up his swords after God of War III, though we hope he does something about those chains first. Sony has revealed that the upcoming sequel will be "the last installment" in the series, leaving the Ghost of Sparta to find creative ways to make beheadings and impalement look good on his resume.

According to Sony, the game will also boast four times the texture resolution seen in God of War II, as well as dynamic lighting and more on-screen enemies than before, which goes a long way explaining why David Jaffe's jaw is still on the floor. Do something about that, will you?
