To quote: It's been a little over a month now since we announced the God of War: Ascension Beta and we know you've been anxiously awaiting news on when you're going to get a chance to slash, disembowel, and crush your way into the pantheon of Olympus...
The God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta is coming to PlayStation Plus this winter. Keep reading to find out the only other way to get in, and how to get in early.
Some of our fans have already had the chance to play the Desert level of our new multiplayer mode at E3, Gamescom, and PAX. However, the multiplayer action has come a long way since then and this winter, Plus subscribers get to go hands-on with all-new multiplayer action that we haven't yet shown.
If you've been following the Ascension news thus far, you know that in God of War Multiplayer, each warrior will align themselves with one of four Gods. Each God will grant a different set of unlockable powers, armor sets, and abilities, which leads to a unique style of play for each God "class."
The first God you'll be able to align with in the Beta will be the almighty Zeus, so to help you get ready, we have a new trailer...

To quote: When you make a game about something unusual like, say, throwing paint in an all-white world, you expect to get a lot of questions. But we were surprised that the question we got asked the most turned out to be "when can I buy it?"
Now we have an answer: you can buy The Unfinished Swan on October 23rd exclusively on PSN for $14.99. And if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you can get the game a week early - October 16th.

In the first of a series of developer diaries, we'll lift the curtain and give you some background on Giant Sparrow, the beginning of The Unfinished Swan and how we landed on PlayStation Network.
