God of War HD Available on PS Plus Today

Free, if you pay £40 a year.

Here’s a nice bonus for PlayStation Plus subscribers: from today, for two weeks, you’ll be able to download the HD remake of the first God of War game on PS3 for free and keep it for as long as your subscription lasts.

Obviously, this is all a bit of marketing from Sony to drum up hype for God of War: Ascension, but it’s certainly a nice treat nonetheless.

The first God of War game is as good a place to start as any – chronologically, Chains of Olympus and Ascension come before it but it’s up to you how you play – it’s not the best title in the series but it’s still a great game.

Ascension, which releases next month, features a first for the series in its multiplayer mode but it also features an in-depth story chronicling Kratos’ earlier days. We’ve taken a look at both the multiplayer beta and single player campaign, which are looking fantastic.

        I agree with kjkg. I completed Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta few weeks ago for the build up to Ascension. Ghost of Sparta is fantastic.

    If you use the search function on the store, it’s free now. And most of this week’s new content is there if you search for it. Currently downloading Dawnguard and the Star Wars Pinball trial.

    Awesome!
    Great game – Preferred this to GoWIII, but not quite as good as GoWII
