Also, new trailer
Later today, look for the shiny new single-player demo for God of War: Ascension on the PlayStation Network, not too far ahead of the March 12 release date. From what Sony tells us, it sounds like it's the same one I played earlier this year. If so, you'll play through the game's opening, getting a taste of the first 30 minutes or so. I hope this is the case, because that demo was really great.
I pledged an oath in blood to point you to this new Ascension trailer, released today. In it you'll see Kratos being all sweet, soft, and emotional. Well, for a bit, anyway.
Finally, the History channel show Vikings has partnered with Sony in a few ways. There's a multiplayer DLC weapon created in partnership with History that will be included exclusively with copies of the game purchased at Best Buy. It's the hammer of Thor, Mjolnir.
