Those who pre-order Sony's upcoming God of War: Ascension (out March 12, 2013) from GameStop will receive a multiplayer DLC pack that allows you to do a little bit of 300 cosplay with your avatar, PlayStation Blog confirms. The pack includes the armor worn by Gerard Butler's King Leonidas in the movie and the spear that he and his 299 fellow Spartans plunged into Persian flesh again and again.
Sure, 300 was released more than six years ago, but I'll give this DLC a pass since Ascension is the first God of War game to offer multiplayer. Frankly, I'll give any game a pass if it gives me an excuse to sit in front of my TV and bellow "This is Sparta!" as I cleave through hordes of human-controlled warriors. Take note, developers.
