In 2005 we released God of War on the PlayStation 2. At the time, we would have never predicted that 10 years later we would be celebrating the legend and icon that Kratos has become with millions of PlayStation fans worldwide.
To help kick off the 10 year anniversary of God of War, this Friday, 20th March 2015, live from Santa Monica Studios starting at 5.00pm GMT on the PlayStation Twitch Channel, we’re partnering with Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) to help raise funds for the AbleGamers Foundation with our event – God of War Done Quick!
Awesome Games Done Quick is an annual event where they gather the world’s best speed runners to finish a game as fast as possible. With their help we will have some of the most skilled God of War players from around the world speed running live on Twitch! Have you ever seen anyone play God of War 1, 2 and 3 in less than five hours total?! This will be a speed running event of the God of War franchise for an amazing cause in AbleGamers. The Schedule:
5.00pm GMT: God of War Done Quick countdown pre-show
- We’re reigning in the Steeds of Time for a 10 year showcase digging into the roots of God of War with the team members who have been with us since the beginning. You’ll see original God of War prototypes, early character developments and unpredictable moments from our very special guests.
5.30pm: God of War Done Quick speedrun!
- Our main event! Witness some of the most skilled God of War players attempt to decimate their world speed run records as we play chronologically through the God of War franchise.

At the heart of God of War Done Quick, and in our partnership with Awesome Games Done Quick, we want to help raise funds and awareness for the AbleGamers Foundation.
The AbleGamers Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to bringing greater accessibility in video games to help improve the quality of life for people with disabilities through the power of digital entertainment. AbleGamers partners closely with gaming and peripheral developers worldwide, and we are proud to help raises funds and awareness towards their cause. We hope you will join with us to help AbleGamers achieve their goal.
