Below are the details, to quote: Single Player: Lightning Strike
Two years after the Helghast attack on Vekta, the ISA are taking the battle to Helghan, their fleet gathering above the capital Pyrrhus.
You are Arran Danner, a mercenary currently under contract to the ISA. Your mission is to infiltrate a battery of Arc cannons and direct their fire away from the ISA fleet, instead targeting the Helghast cruisers overhead and opening a way into the city. This is critical to enabling the invasion of Pyrrhus to begin in earnest.
The covert nature of your mission commences with a wing suit drop into the facility; the only way to avoid detection by Helghast surveillance. Once inside your objective is to locate and hack the systems controlling the Arc cannon battery and unleash its devastating power on the unsuspecting Helghast cruisers above.
This won't be an easy ride, the battery is heavily guarded and the security protocols protecting the control systems will require you to interface directly with them using your VAN-Guard, right under the nose of the garrisoned troops.
16w ago - God of War: Ascension Game Director Todd Papy has shared some videos showcasing the God of War: Ascension single-player demo which hits PSN today.
To quote: Champions! We wait to Ascend. The studio floor is empty and silent. The team that once buzzed with the energy and fervor is now quiet. Full. Satisfied.
The countless souls that once labored deep into the night have been dramatically refreshed with sleep... lots and lots of sleep. You see, the Gods have demanded our creation and now there is little we can do but wait. We must abide together until it is unleashed upon the world on March 12. But waiting is so hard.
What would you give for a glimpse into the future? For a taste of Satyr blood? To unchain Kratos before the world is ready? Would you swear a blood oath to Olympus? Forge a bond with the Gods?
It is a tempting offer...no? Behold the spoils in return for your bond!
We're thrilled to unleash our God of War: Ascension single-player demo to ALL PlayStation Network users later today. Become Kratos and escape the epic Prison of the Damned. God of War: Ascension's demo will allow players to explore and master the legendary Spartan's new advanced combat.

19w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a behind the scenes interview and video spotlighting Killzone: Mercenary Single Player mode today for PlayStation Vita.
To quote: For a series that's always been at the bleeding edge of modern FPS design - both in terms of technical performance and muscular gameplay - it's fair to say that expectations are sky high for Killzone: Mercenary - the first PS Vita entry in Guerrilla's acclaimed franchise.
Until last week's reveal, all the studio has shown off was a brief teaser clip at Gamescom last September. But earlier this month, in a very snowy Amsterdam, it finally took the wraps off the game, showing off big chunks of both the single and multiplayer modes.
And you can breathe easy - it looks absolutely stunning, packing all the visceral grit and gristle of its home console brethren into PS Vita with real style. Don't believe us? Remind yourself of the new trailer below.
We sat down with Piers Jackson, who's leading development at Guerrilla Cambridge (the same team responsible for the exemplary LittleBigPlanet PSP), to find out more about the game, with particular attention paid to its...
