God of War: Ascension Release Date, Collector's Edition Details, Pre-Order Offer and E3 2012 Screens/Trailer

Pre-order God of War: Ascension today to receive the Mythological Heroes Multiplayer DLC Pack
During the PlayStation E3 press conference, Sony Computer Entertainment America announced that God of War: Ascension, developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) Santa Monica Studio, will be available on March 13th, 2013, exclusively for PS3. The story behind God of War: Ascension tells the journey of Kratos' redemption from his past sins and the rise of his rage to break free from Ares' bond.
The enhanced combat system allows you to sling enemies around as a wrecking ball while maintaining a blade attack at the same time, in the air and the ground. Also, the new world weapon system allows Kratos to steal enemies’ weapons to use against them. And, using the Life Cycle ability, Kratos can control the flow of time on various objects in the environments to solve puzzles and freeze enemies during combat.
Jam-packed in a premium steel book game case, the God of War: Ascension Collector's Edition includes a Kratos statue, the official game soundtrack (digital version), a PS3 dynamic theme and PSN avatar pack, double XP points for multiplayer, and a DLC pass to unlock all future DLC releases at no additional cost. For pre-ordering either the standard or Collector's Edition, you will be able to pick up our Mythological Heroes Multiplayer DLC Pack as well. This is a universal pre-order item, so you can pre-order at any participating retailer and get the DLC pack.
