Pre-Ordering Ascension Nets You King Leonidas Multiplayer DLC

Well, it certainly fits, doesn't it?

Some downloadable content has been announced for the upcoming God of War: Ascension, and according to the PlayStation Blog, those who pre-order the game at GameStop will get a special piece of "300" DLC.

Based on the hit 2006 action movie, this DLC grants the player the use of King Leonidas, who will come fully equipped with his signature Spartan helmet, armor, red cape, and deadly spear. Unsurprisingly, that spear will have a unique set of abilities, so it should be really cool to try out in the multiplayer. Yes, bear in mind that this is multiplayer DLC; that may seem odd for a game like Ascension but hey, what DLC isn't for multiplayer these days?

In addition, GameStop will toss in a double-sided 22" x 28" poster so you can have a bit of wall decoration. By the way, don't forget that if you pick up "Total Recall" on Blu-Ray on December 18, you'll get a single-player demo for the game as well. No, not the original "Total Recall," the remake that was recently in theaters...and that's unfortunate, because I've been thinking of adding the original to my collection.

I'm confused, did Snorge say something funny or about snow?

A public mention of one's birthday? What is this? Joystiq?

Happens all the time on this site so I didn't think anything of it.

Neither, it was about me trying to not think as much of gaming when the snow is here, so I can try to go boarding as much as possible.

Multiplayer DLC for a God of War game. Feels so wrong...

I really look forward to this new GoW largely because it has multiplayer.
While it's easy to get blinded with shooter based multiplayer hate, I think many action game genres could do well by implementing multiplayer elements. NGS2 and NG3 were steps in the right direction and this new GoW seems to have the right idea as well. I support this!

Why the heck does everyone give gamestop the best pre order bonus if there against used game sales?

I hear ya on the GameStop used games, always get the top special editions. For the dlc for GoW is fine, games have to evolve and the multiplayer looks awesome! The more unique multiplayer gameplay online the better. Look at Uncharted online it's so much fun and unique on the game styles, hours can go by without any realization from the intensity. Those armored guys put you on the edge of your seat! Looking forward to GoW online, going to be plenty of fun, blood and gore going around. LoL! Plus hearing SPARTANS!

I can already hear it. You start up a multiplayer game and everybody screams "This is Sparta!"
