Great news for PlayStation 3 fans, especially those wanting to play the console’s biggest game this year early. TheSixthAxis can reveal that, at least in Europe, anyone buying God Of War: Ascension on Blu-ray will also get access to a free playable demo of Naughty Dog’s great looking The Last Of Us.
The demo will be exclusive to those picking up Ascension, at least at first. The demo will – according to the information we’ve been given – be bundled with the Blu-ray for God Of War but it’s likely it’ll be a demo that you’ll need to download.
The Last Of Us is one of the PS3’s most ambitious games, coming from the studio responsible for the wonderful Uncharted series. God Of War: Ascension is also hotly anticipated, with the story going back to Kratos’ roots and setting up the rest of the series.
Sony Europe announced special editions of The Last Of Us earlier this week, with the versions being split into two packages with slightly different content – one themed on each key protagonist in the game, and available from different retailers depending on which one you wanted: Joel or Ellie. The Last Of Us is due in May.
More details of what the demo will entail are expected to be revealed on the PlayStation Blog after God of War is released, which makes us think the demo won’t be available on day one, oddly.
God Of War: Ascension is out on March 15th.
