God of War: Ascension Will Give Early Access To The Last of Us Demo

By Ishaan . January 24, 2013 . 1:15pm

Sony are giving The Last of Us fans incentive to pick up God of War: Ascension. While The Last of Us won’t be released until May, access to an early demo will be included with the new God of War game, which is due out this March.


Note that this doesn’t mean you’ll get to play The Last of Us in March. The demo itself will be made available at a later date, sometime after the release of God of War: Ascension.


God of War: Ascension is slated for release on March 12th. The Last of Us will be released on May 7th. Both U.S. and European copies of God of War will grant access to a demo for The Last of Us.

    Can we play as a female character in multiplayer? So far that is the main thing turning me off from the multiplayer part of the god of war. I liked to beat up/kill the big strong men with a girl :p

    Though if there was a girl in it, I bet she would be wearing battle bikini’s :x

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      I’d imagine she’d look more like Xena. =/

      • MNT

        I’d imagine everybody are going to do that, it will just be women ripping each others to shreds.

      I’d think that if there were female characters in the multiplayer they’d be women, not girls ;) Still it’s a good point- hope they remember to be so inclusive. Last game with multiplayer they made did have female characters, so I hope the same applies here.

    Oh, come on. Can’t they do that like the ZoE Collection?

    I don’t play God of War, so I guess I’ll have to wait until the demo hits PSN… Don’t let me down PS Plus!

  • It’ll eventually come to PSN they always do. I’m super excited for the game though, Last of Us I mean, GoW looks like the same old brutal thing.

    I read this on Wikipedia, and lost pretty much all interest in GoWA’s multiplayer

    Papy also noted that there will be no female characters because each
    character in multiplayer mode is based on Kratos’ animation model.

    I don’t want to say lazy, but I REALLY want to. How hard would it be to make a second character model for female fighters?! It would take time yes, but if this game has been in development for over a year and a half… they could have found time to do that.

      Maybe there would be a controversy if you could kill womens and stuff.

      • zferolie

        I’m sure someone would complain,l but honestly, why would is killing men in a game OK, but for Women it’s bad. This isn’t the 1990’s where they make woman characters into men because it was considered bad to punch a woman.

        If we want video games to grow, you need to include these things. Women die in comics, tv shows, movies, and books, but it is bad to do it in games. As long as the game does it in a good way, and not objectify women in how you kill them, I think it should be allowed. The women are able to defend themselves in this game too. It’s not like you are killing hookers in GTA or something.

          Well I dont think its about right or wrong.
          I think sony was just worried.
          In most games enemies are male…or female monsters
