God of War is one of Sony’s flagship franchises and the next instalment, Ascension, is sure to be another epic adventure. The PlayStation Blog has just outed the release date for the game, it’ll be the 15th March in the UK, with the EU getting their hands on it two days earlier and Australia and New Zealand seeing it on the 14th of March 2013.
They’ve announce two special versions of the game, a Collector’s Edition which features an 8 inch Kratos figurine, digital soundtrack, PS3 dynamic theme and avatar pack. It will also give you double XP for the multiplayer (which must be levelling then…) and a DLC pass that will unlock all future DLC (so that’s coming, too) for free. It all comes in a steelbook case.
The Special Edition features the same steelbook case, soundtrack, dynamic theme and avatar pack as well as the double XP bonus but it doesn’t have the figure or the DLC pass.
Apparently, they’ll be back with images of the Editions soon, along with more info about that multiplayer XP and the DLC.
