God of War Ascension demo released - new trailer

Sample the PS3 exclusive now in the US and tomorrow in Europe

Sony has sent over a God of War: Ascension trailer to accompany the release of a new game demo.


The demo launches today on the PlayStation Network Stateside and tomorrow in Europe. Sony says the taster will allow players to sample the title's new combat mechanics:

  • Make your stand against a Titanic beast and its infected legions
  • Unleash your Rage in fiery explosions that burn your enemies to ash
  • Impale enemies on your chained blades and use them in combat as living wrecking balls
  • Wield the weapons of your enemies in countless new combos

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

SCE UK is to launch a God of War: Ascension PS3 hardware bundle alongside the game. It's not quite as epic as the US alternative, where SCEA will release the God of War Ascension Legacy hardware bundle featuring every game in the series and a 30-day trial subscription to PlayStation Plus.
