If you’re currently participating in the God of War: Ascension beta, then your efforts will not go unnoticed. Sony Santa Monica has promised to bestow all contributing warriors with a package from the heavens. Rewards include a set of steely championship armour and an exclusive blood-stained sword. We would have preferred a clean gift, but it’s the thought that counts.

The online sample is currently open to PlayStation Plus subscribers, and features two game modes and maps, in addition to a preview of the title’s distinctly Power Stone-esque four-player free-for-all playlist. Non-premium members can catch a glimpse of the competitive component courtesy of the trailer embedded below.
