Santa Monica Studios has announced this evening that subscribers to PlayStation Plus will have access to the early beta of the multiplayer for God of War: Ascension.
On top of the collection of free games available through PS Plus, the beta incentive has been phenomenal this quarter, including the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale beta and now the beta for GoW: Ascension. However, having PS Plus is not the only way to get into this anticipated beta.
Users can also head over to GodofWar.com and experience what's called Rise of the Warrior, which is a story delivered through a graphic novel style. While participating in Rise of the Warrior, users can also win access to the Ascension beta one week before PS Plus users are granted it, as well as earn in-game unlocks and exclusive weapons and armor.
In regards to the GodofWar.com website, it's currently linking straight to the PlayStation Blog, so we can only speculate right now that the official site will go live when Rise of the Warrior is officially released. Do note however that GodofWar.com will support iOS and Android mobile browsers, so it can all be done on the go as well.
Surely, this beta access will help shorten, or lengthen depending on how you look at it, the time it'll take for God of War: Ascension to hit shelves on March 12, 2013.
