Santa Monica and Sony revealed today two brand new trailers for their upcoming, hack and slash epic, God of War: Ascension. Along side this, they have also detailed when players can expect the beta to drop and whats inside.
Zeus, the almighty God of Olympus will be the first of the four gods that players will be able to align with in the Beta. To get an early start, here’s the introduction video for the Zeus class.
Since the multiplayer shown at E3 this past year, many new changes have been applied, and according to the PS blog, players can expect “all-new multiplayer action” that has yet to be shown off.
At the end of the trailer you’ll notice that it says the beta will be made available this Winter, “exclusively” to PS+ subscribers. There is one other way to get into the beta, which requires you to visit the official God of War Website. Titled, “The Rise of the Warrior,” this social experience will allow you to live the life of a warrior through a graphic novel. You’ll be given quests, which can help you earn 30-days of PS+ and a week early access to the Beta.
This isn’t the only reward detailed by the blog as from now until March 12 2013, players of this social game will be able to earn exclusive in-game items that include online weapons and armors.
Here’s another video to feast your eyes on as Santa Monica takes you behind the scene for their preparation of multiplayer.
If you can’t access the God of War web page, don’t fret as they are currently waiting for some DNS issues to be resolved.
What do you think about some of the new footage shown off? Will you be trying out the beta this Winter?
