The producer of God of War III has hinted at what we can expect in terms of downloadable content for the game.
Speaking to GamePro, Stig Asmussen said it would "make a lot of sense" to offer downloadable challenge rooms after release.
"So, maybe you'll see the game ship with a certain amount of challenges on it, then later on, we might put a download pack out with new challenges. It's a good way to keep the series going," he said. "We have different enemy types to work with, and the enemies do a lot of different things. Challenges are usually based off mechanics that are built in the game, so all the new mechanics will allow us to do different challenges.
"For example, now that you have creatures you can ride, maybe we'll put in a challenge where in a certain amount of time you have to get on a Cyclops and kill a certain number of enemies in a certain amount of time. Or, maybe you have to use the Cyclops to get through a certain type of hazard or area or something like that."
Elsewhere in the interview Asmussen said it will take "between 10 or 20 hours" to complete God of War III, depending on how good/rubbish you are.
He also revealed the design team is still considering putting Sixaxis functionality into the game. "We're not currently using it, but that doesn't mean we won't get something in there by the time it ships," said Asmussen. "I can see a lot of different uses for it."
Best get a move on as there's not that long to go - God of War III will be released in March 2010. But you can play it before that, next week in fact, if you go to the Eurogamer Expo.
