God Of War: Ascension’s Demo Detailed
I’m not really one for demos, typically I don’t think they give an adequate cross-section of the experience the game offers in terms of singleplayer titles. Obviously for multiplayer games and games such as FIFA this doesn’t apply but you won’t find me rushing to download the latest demo for Dead Space or God of War: Ascension but curiously I’ve already watched the demo for God of War: Ascension without knowing it at the time.
You see, a few days ago we posted a video of the opening 30 minutes of Ascension and it turns out, as confirmed via a tweet from Sony Santa Monica, that the opening 30 minutes is in fact the demo for the game. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing but I suppose it’s not a bad idea entirely. In case you missed, here’s the first 30 minutes of the game and by Odin’s beard, it is something to behold. Below is the tweet in question.
GoW: Ascension is due out in late March with the demo first available to those who have taken part in the Rise of the Warrior online game. When and if the demo will go public is another question entirely.
