Kratos’ genocide of the Greek pantheon may have come to its debatably satisfying conclusion, but his franchise is far from six feet under. If you’d like proof, check out God of War bonus site “Spartans Stand Tall.”

See that guy there? About thiiis tall? Wearing a toga? Yeah, he’s new.

For those in need of a refresher, Spartans Stand Tall has been keeping track of how many players have hacked and slashed their way to a Platinum Trophy in God of War III without succumbing to frustration and going on a murderous rampage of their own.

Right now, the site’s meter is 3/4 full. It’s assumed, then, that Sony Santa Monica plans on revealing something suitably epic once players top off the meter. Our best guess? DLC. But maybe not, since the game’s apparently locked up so tight that cracking it open is actually the plot of the next Ocean’s movie.

Unless everyone in the world stops playing God of War III right this second, though, we should find out what Sony Santa Monica’s got cooking soon enough. In the meantime, though, speculate away!
