The God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta recently opened up to PlayStation Plus members. Unlike most PS Plus offerings, this one didn’t remain exclusive for very long. If you’re near your PS3 this holiday weekend, and you aren’t signed up for PS Plus, you have the chance to participate in the beta. Simply redeem the code F2TA-HMNB-762G from your account settings or the PlayStation Store to get the download started.
God of War: Ascension‘s multiplayer will let you choose an allegiance with either Ares or Zeus. You’ll get different abilities based on the god you choose. From there, you’ll be able to fight in three match types such as free-for-all, deathmatch or capture the flag. Up to eight players can fight on the same two maps at a time.
As you complete matches, you’ll be able to customize your fighter with helmets, weapons, armor and relics up to level 30. The combat will feel very familiar to those who are accustomed to Kratos’ fighting style throughout the series. They can even perform Kratos’ trademark chain-grabbing moves.
Don’t put off downloading this beta because it’ll all be over soon. The full game will be released on March 12.
