God of War: Ascension Special and Collector's Editions Detailed, Release Date Revealed
The Collector's Edition and Special Edition of God of War: Ascension have been announced.
Sony has announced plans to put out special editions of God of War: Ascension, a game which is set for release in March next year.
In addition to the Standard Edition, God of War: Ascension will be available in two extra editions: a Special Edition and a Collector's Edition, both of which will come with a host of goodies.
The Collector's Edition will carry what Sony is calling the "ultimate God of War collectible"—an 8" Kratos figurine. Packaged in a premium Steelbook game case, the game will also include a digital version of the official soundtrack, a PS3 dynamic theme and avatar pack, a double XP bonus for multiplayer which lasts for a limited period of time, and a complete DLC pass to unlock all future downloadable content for no additional cost.
The Special Edition of God of War: Ascension is about the same as the Collector's Edition, minus the Kratos figurine. Likewise, it'll come in a Steelbook case, soundtrack, theme and avatar pack, and the double XP bonus in multiplayer. However, this version of the game will not include the complete DLC pass. That's limited to the Collector's Edition alone.
The North American release date for the game has yet to be confirmed, but Sony has pinned down the release of the game to other locations to the following dates:
UK & Ireland: 15th March 2013
Australia & New Zealand: 14th March 2013
Rest of Europe/PAL: 13th March 2013
Details about the game's upcoming DLC and multiplayer bonuses will be revealed in the near future.
