Here's how you can get access to God of War: Ascension's upcoming multiplayer beta


Sony has announced a way for you to gain access to the upcoming God of War: Ascension multiplayer beta. Unfortunately, you have to be in Seattle, Washington this weekend.

If you find yourself at PAX Prime this weekend, be sure to attend the God of War: Ascension panel in person and Sony will give you a way to access the game's multiplayer beta.

The panel will take place this Friday, August 31st from 5:00pm to 6:00pm in the Unicorn Theater. During the panel God of War: Ascension Game Director Todd Papy, Lead Game Designer Mark Simon, Principal Character Artist Patrick Murphy, and the award-winning writer behind the God of War series, Marianne Krawczyk, will discuss the origins of God of War: Ascension and provide a never-before-seen look at the evolution of Kratos.

The team will also discuss the creation process of God of War as well as the origins of bringing multiplayer to the franchise for the first time. Additionally, the team has plans to debut a brand-new reveal trailer of a major character in Ascension that Kratos will encounter.

"The God of War PAX 2012 panel is an “hour” every God of War fan at the convention or anywhere around the world reading this should tune in at 5:00pm Pacific Time this Friday," Santa Monica Studio community strategist Aaron Kaufman said. "Not only do we promise you’ll be entertained, but we can’t be certain what else may be revealed as these creators of God of War have a helluva story to tell you about."

For those unable to attend, you'll miss out on the beta access, but you can still tune into the panel. It will be streamed on
