In spite of the core differences between film and videogames, games have been trying to snuggle up closer to movies for years, and now a new promotion for God of War: Ascension bridges the gap even more, if just physically. Sony has announced that purchase of the Total Recall Blu-ray on December 18 also nets you the E3 single-player demo for God of War Ascension.
Posting from the official PlayStation blog, here’s what Sony had to say:
Hello God of War fans! Sony Santa Monica is very excited to be teaming up with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to get you some exclusive hands-on time with God of War: Ascension on December 18th. For a limited time, when you purchase the Director’s Cut Total Recall Blu-ray and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack you will receive the E3 2012 God of War: Ascension Single Player demo.
Both Blu-rays feature the Extended Directors Cut, which includes 20 minutes of new footage not shown in theaters, including an alternate ending and over 1.5 hours of special features and Blu-ray exclusive content. The God of War: Ascension Single Player demo is available with this special offer on the Blu-ray hybrid disc.
The demo includes the new gameplay mechanics and combat systems we showed off earlier this summer, so you can get a taste all of the brutal action before the game launches next March.
