God of War: Ascension Demo Bundled With Total Recall Blu-Ray in Europe

    December 17, 2012

The Total Recall remake may have been one of the summer’s biggest flops, but Sony is now looking to pump the movie’s video sales with one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of 2013.

Sony announced today that most European and Australian copies of Total Recall‘s Extended Director’s Cut on Blu-Ray will include access to the single player demo of God of War: Ascension. A voucher code on an insert inside the case will allow gamers to download the demo via the PlayStation Network.

U.S. God of War fans are being left out of the deal, perhaps because Total Recall‘s box office totals there were so poor. Germany has also been excluded, but gamers in the U.K., Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, all Nordic countries, Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Israel, Turkey, and South Africa will be able to get the demo with the Blu-Ray.

The demo will be the one seen at this year’s E3, presumably with the bipedal elephant mini-boss. Sony stated the demo will give players a chance to experience the game’s new combat system and gameplay elements before its release in March. Gamers will have to decide whether the demo is worth over €20 and whether it’s worth the possibility of being caught owning a Blu-Ray copy of Total Recall.
