God Of War: Ascension’s Demo Is February 26, But There’s A Way To Get It Early

Everyone will get their hands on the demo for God of War: Ascension on February 26, but some will get access to it on February 20, provided they prevail in some kind of social media sign-up challenge that’s been going on for the past 10 days.

The “Rise of the Warrior social challenge,” as it’s called, will give a winning side (“Spartans” or “Trojans,” and your membership appears to be determined randomly when you sign up) once it becomes the first to reach 10 million points in what appears to be a trivia challenge. Obviously, inviting a bunch of your friends to this helps the cause, that’s why they’re doing it this way.

The big reason for participating, says Sony, is “you will earn exclusive multiplayer treasures from the Gods that can only be attained from this experience,” so there’s that, too.

  • Just be aware if you are signing up now, you only gain early access if your side wins this round. At the moment, people who signed up and were on the Spartan side before February 7th will get access to the beta. Spartans who signed up after the 7th have to battle it out with the Trojans for the fight to claim early access.

    It doesn’t take long to do each chapter, as there are cheat sheets with answers out there on the internet (if you really can’t be bothered), but it isn’t much effort for free DLC and X2 multipliers for MP
