God of War: Ascension Beta Detailed

Posted on October 23, 2012 AT 03:20am

Sony has revealed a few details about the upcoming multiplayer beta for God of War: Ascension and also announced that fans can gain a week’s early access via a new social game.

The beta will be made available this winter for PlayStation Plus subscribers, however fans who take part in a new social game launched by Sony can get in a week earlier. The Rise of the Warrior is a new social game on the God of War website, and by completing a number of social challenges PlayStation 3 owners can unlock a week’s worth of early access to the beta and 30 days of PlayStation Plus.

Between now and the game’s release in March fans will be able to earn exclusive multiplayer unlocks via the game including weapons and armor to use in the full release. Sony promises that the beta will include all-new multiplayer action and features that are yet to be shown, and that the first players into the beta will have the option of aligning with Zeus.

God of War: Ascension is due out March 12, 2013 exclusively on PlayStation 3.

Excited for the beta?
