Mythological Heroes Pack and the new Trial of the Gods mode also previewed
This… is… totally a timely reference to the film 300! Sony announced a GameStop pre-order bonus that puts players in the pit-kickin' shoes of King Leonidas in God of War: Ascension's multiplayer mode a while ago. Now we can see it in action below.
If you pre-order Ascension from any retailer you'll get the Mythological Heroes Pack, which lets you play as Perseus, Orion, Odysseus, and Achilles. Here's a peek at what you can expect from that one.
Finally, God of War: Ascension is adding a fourth multiplayer mode with Trial of the Gods, a Horde mode style challenge that can be played solo or co-op with a partner.
God of War: Ascension hits PlayStation 3 in North America on March 12.
