Buy God Of War: Ascension At Best Buy, Get Thor's Multiplayer Hammer
If you still haven't decided where you're going to pick up your copy of God of War: Ascension, then Best Buy has a little somethin'-somethin' to help sweeten the pot. Slap down your money there and you'll net yourself the Mjolnir Multiplayer Weapon DLC, featuring a massive hammer inspired by the History Channel's new show, Vikings.
The God of War series is no stranger to promotional cross-overs. A demo for God of War III was first made available on Blu-ray copies of District 9. A demo for Naughty Dog's upcoming The Last of Us is available on God of War: Ascension, too. So, really, having a weapon themed after a television show popping up as promotional DLC content isn't too big of a surprise, especially considering the fact that the Vikings were no strangers to war.
Announced through the PlayStation Blog, the only way to get your hands on the Mjolnir hammer is to purchase Ascension from Best Buy. You don't have to pre-order it there, you just have to buy it. But still, you might want to consider that pre-order anyway. Doing so will also grant you access to the Mythological Heroes Multiplayer DLC Pack, featuring the armor of Perseus, Orion, Achilles and Odysseus.
For those of you unfamiliar with the hammer's name, Mjolnir, Associate Product Marketing Manager Brian Dunn explains that it's none other than the hammer. It's a godly weapon so, again, it's not too big a leap in logic to see it popping up in Ascension.
God of War: Ascension hits store shelves on March 12, but a demo is expected in the coming weeks. For one last bit of cross-promotional fellowship, a sneak peak at the Vikings television series (airing March 3) will be included in the upcoming Ascension demo, too.
