Sony has revealed that those looking out for the single-player demo of upcoming hack 'n' slash title God of War: Ascension will only have to wait until February 26th. The demo will allow players to experience a short amount of Kratos in the fourth God of War title and will consist of gameplay from last years E3.
Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and daughter, his hands stained with their blood – tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares… but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken. This is where your journey in God of War: Ascension begins.
It’s been more than six long months since your first look at God of War: Ascension’s single-player campaign at E3. You’ve waited patiently, and asked about it an ungodly (but unsurprising) number of times. So, as we get ready to close our multiplayer beta early next week, the time has come to focus on where Ascension and its story will take you this March.
Sony is also offering early access by competing in the Rise of the Warrior social challenge, which you can find here
. Those who do win will be given access on February 20th, a full week ahead of the general public.
God of War: Ascension will be available for PlayStation 3 on March 14th.
