In just a few short months, The Last of Us will launch and put the fate of Joel and Ellie into your hands as they embark on a brutal journey across a post-pandemic United States. Right now, May 7, 2013 might seem like a long way away so to help assuage the excruciating wait we have some very exciting news to share with you. We’re announcing today that you’ll be able to demo The Last of Us when it becomes available prior to launch by picking up a copy of God of War: Ascension. Fans that picked up God of War: Ascension will be the only people to get their hands on this chapter of The Last of Us prior to the launch of the full game!
We teamed up with the development crew at Santa Monica Studio to include a chapter of The Last of Us in every copy of God of War: Ascension so you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on two of the biggest games of the year. You’ll simply have to load your God of War: Ascension disc into your PS3 and find The Last of Us listing on the main menu. There you’ll find details on how you can obtain The Last of Us demo for free and when it launches. So, shortly after you’re done carving your way through Ancient Greece in Kratos’ quest for vengeance, you’ll be able to get an early taste of the story in The Last of Us without even swapping discs.
We hope you’re as excited about this news as we are and we know what’s likely on your mind now: what will you be able to play? We’ll have more news about what’s in store for you after God of War: Ascension launches in March. We hope your wait just got better!
