God of War: Ascension pre-orders get '300' DLC

King Leonidas character skin offered to GameStop customers

Sony has teamed up with Warner Bros. to offer a special DLC perk to customers who pre-order God of War: Ascension at GameStop.


Pre-orders of the Standard and Collector's Editions of the game will receive a multiplayer character skin in the form of King Leonidas from the appropriately Greek mythology-themed blockbuster film '300' (played by Gerard Butler).

According to Sony, "Donning King Leonidas's red cape, iconic helmet, and armor you will stand apart as one of the ultimate warriors of Sparta. King Leonidas also comes with his iconic spear, which has its own set of unique combat moves."

Pre-orders will also get a double-sided God of War: Ascension poster (pictured).

Sony has confirmed a God of War: Ascension release date of March 15, 2013 in the UK, and March 12 in US.
