Plans to release God of War Collection separately in UK, confirms SCEE

SCEE’s told VG247 that it has plans to release the God of War Collection separately in the UK.

However, for now, no details have been confirmed other then the Ultimate Trilogy edition, which will set you back £110 in the UK.

A rep from the firm told us: “There are plans to release the GOW Collection separately but nothing has been confirmed outside of the Ultimate Edition for the time being.”

Sony told us, though, it could “only speak for the UK” in terms of the Collection being sold on its own.

Previously, we were told there was no plans to bundle the Collection and God of War III together in an official package.

Yesterday, SCEE said it was aiming to release the hack-and-slash epic in the UK on March 19, although nothing’s official yet.

Confirmation is due in a few weeks.

A bundle is also planned.

US retailer GameStop has the game down for a March 16 release in America.

It’ll release in Japan on March 25.

    Any further news about this special edition of III, that listings have appeared in several places for? Good to see the Collection will be released, though.

    Hope they release it in Spain too, or that the UK has Spanish subtitles. The only thing I wanted about the pack was this and the OST, but specially this, so I don’t want to buy it just for them to tell me that at the end, they sell it apart. It was enough when the 5-version pack for Blade Runner was “only the case version”, for me to see months later they sell it itself and for 20€. I’m tired of buying special packs for exclusive contents that aren’t.

    Makes sense for SCEE to announce something without a release date with regards to GoW.

    If you don’t mind it being in English Juan you could always import the collection.

    Google translations always make things fun.

    I guess if Juan has to use google translator, he will mind it being in 100% English.

    In my case I will wait, if they don’t sell it in Spain with Spanish subtitles without the Pandora’s Box, then doesn’t mind, I will have to buy it to the UK or USA anyway. Spanish subtitles is not something I need, but something I would appreciate, and I would enjoy it more than just in English. I guess (and hope) that if the UE edition in the Pandora’s Box is Multi, the UK GOW Collection will be exactly the same disc, if they don’t do what they did with Infamous.

    I’m currently playing Chains of Olympus on psp. It’s my first taste of GoW and from what I’ve played so far I’m hooked. Going to get the collection from eBay (£32 seems a bargain) and I’m dam excited about number 3. Just hurry up SCE with a release date!!

    @24, I got my GoW collection off of Movietyme for £29.99. Granted it’s only £2, but it still would have been a saving.
