I will definitely be picking up GOW just for the demo. I have been wanting to play the GOW series anyways. I bet it will be the same as the E3 2012 though.
" 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.
May 7th, 2013 might seem like a long way away, so to help assuage the excruciating wait we’re announcing today that players who pick up God of War: Ascension will be able to get their hands on a demo of The Last of Us when it becomes available at a later date.
We teamed up with the development crew at Santa Monica Studio to include access to 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. Just load the 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 as soon as it becomes available.
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 a little easier! "
The multiplayer is really fun and balanced, the close-combat system is very unique, and the Last of Us should definitely follow it. Focusing on fist-to-fist combat is very important for The Last of Us, spectulating guns will be rare. Though the only problem with God of War multiplayer is that they had to cut the story short for it
Well, Ascension is still over 2 months away, and apperently the demo won't be available on it's release date either. Im guessing the demo won't come out until April...I'm not sold on GoW right now, I seriously thought Santa Monica was going to make a new IP after GoW 3, but maybe I'll change my mind on March. They're a great studio, I just hope they don't over-do it with Kratos.
