May 7th, 2013 might seem like a long way away, so to help assuage the excruciating wait we're announcing today that players who pick up God of War: Ascension will be able to get their hands on a demo of The Last of Us when it becomes available at a later date.
We teamed up with the development crew at Santa Monica Studio to include access to a chapter of The Last of Us in every copy of God of War: Ascension, so you won't have to wait too long to get your hands on two of the biggest games of the year.
Just load the God of War: Ascension disc into your PS3 and find The Last of Us listing on the main menu. There, you'll find details on how you can obtain The Last of Us demo for free as soon as it becomes available.
17w ago - Today Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari has officially announced that the God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta is open to all PSN users.
Below are the details, to quote: You've likely read or seen the many posts over the past month regarding the God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta.
At first it was available only to participants of the "Rise of the Warrior" experience on the God of War Web site (which is now relaunched, new and improved, and ready to dole out even more extras for series fans).
Then it was only accessible to PlayStation Plus members (as if they needed any more exclusive content, what with their free Instant Game Collection and countless discounts).
Now, we're excited to announce that we're opening up the Ascension MP Beta to all PlayStation Network users for a very limited time. Starting now and lasting through the holiday weekend--provided you've got a PlayStation 3 and a valid North American PlayStation Network account- you're in!
Think of it as a sampling- nay, a slice- of the benefits and rewards showered upon PlayStation Plus members month after month. Wish you could have played the Beta for longer than a few days? Wish you could get more first looks...
