PS Plus Subscribers to Get Access to God of War Ascension Beta
With the advent of the Instant Game Collection this year, Sony has made the PlayStation Plus subscription completely worth the price of admission. But in the last few weeks, they’ve added to the subscription’s value by allowing users exclusive access to beta trials of upcoming games like LittleBigPlanet for the Vita and PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale.
Well, that list just got a little longer: the PlayStation Blog today announced that their forthcoming, triple-A title, God of War: Ascension, will have an exclusive multiplayer beta trial for PS Plus subscribers. And while those other games were pretty nice to have early access to, this is balls-to-the-wall awesome. None of those other games have been as highly anticipated as this’un.
Here’s what the game’s director, Todd Papy, had to say on the news:
“…the multiplayer action has come a long way since [PAX] and this winter, Plus subscribers get to go hands-on with all-new multiplayer action that we haven’t yet shown. If you’ve been following the Ascension news thus far, you know that in God of War Multiplayer, each warrior will align themselves with one of four Gods. Each God will grant a different set of unlockable powers, armor sets, and abilities, which leads to a unique style of play for each God ‘class.’”
The PS Blog post also has a new trailer to show off one such god: none other than Zeus, so be sure to check that out.
How cool is this? The answer is VERY VERY COOL. I’m looking forward to this one.
