March is jam-packed with big-name titles and perhaps the biggest of them all for PlayStation 3 fans is God of War: Ascension .
It's also the first GoW entry to boast a full online multiplayer option, so developer Sony Santa Monica is going to hold a beta test. If you'd like to participate, it would help if you were a PlayStation Plus member, as you'll get the first crack at the test. Plus peeps always get cool bonuses!
As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , the multiplayer beta will be available to Plus subscribers on January 8. We'll be able to sample the previously unseen Favor of the Gods Mode, which is essentially Team Favor of the Gods without the "team" part. Using the Spear of Olympus, you can rack up points via bonus kills and skilled executions. The map is known as the Desert of Lost Souls and in addition, we'll even be able to play through a tutorial level "that includes battle allegiances with both Zeus and Ares." Sounds like a blast!
God of War: Ascension is slated for March 12 and it'll be available exclusively for the PS3.
