Today Sony revealed that anyone who buys “God of War: Ascension” from Best Buy will get an exclusive DLC item related to History’s upcoming original series “Vikings.” While God of War is steeped in ancient Greek mythology, the characters in the new show are clearly followers of the ancient Norse gods. That’s where Mjölnir, the Hammer of Thor, comes in.
While supplies last, each copy of “God of War: Ascension” from Best Buy will receive a “voucher” to unlock the mighty Mjölnir for multiplayer mode. The voucher code will also provide access to the Mythological Heroes Multiplayer DLC Pack, which includes four unique armor sets representing four of ancient Greece’s greatest mythological heroes – Achilles, Perseus, Orion and Odysseus.
“Vikings” follows the story of Ragnar Lothbrok, the rumored direct descendant of the Norse god, Odin (Thor’s dad). The series kicks off Sunday night, March 3rd at 10pm. Also, the God of War: Ascension demo will have exclusive bonus content from the show.
“God of War: Ascension” will be available for PlayStation 3 beginning March 13th
