Del Ray is to release a novel based on the God of War franchise in March 2010.

The book is the first in a two-part deal.


In the novel GOD OF WAR, Kratos, the game’s protagonist, is a great warrior who seeks revenge on the God of War Ares for the deaths of his wife and child. On his journey to Olympus, Kratos must battle great monsters of legend–and fight his own inner demons. Kratos’ quest will take him through a world of Greek mythology transformed, in which the familiar legends take on a terrifying new life–from the Aegean, where Kratos will grapple with the Great Hydra, to the depths of Hades, where Kratos will face death itself, to the heights of Mount Olympus. With all the thrilling action that got fans hooked on the game, the novel GOD OF WAR takes us deeper into this fascinating world.

    It’d work better as a graphic novel, and it’d be short at that.

    The story of God of War is good, but it ain’t long.

    I’m sort of imagining it in the style of a homo-erotic Mills and Boon.
