Sony is rounding out God of War: Ascension’s multiplayer beta with an open invitation to all PlayStation Network users. Throughout the course of the holiday weekend, those of you in North America will be able to partake in the goriest battle since the start of Gangs of New York. There’s no need for a PlayStation Plus subscription, all you need to do is redeem the code posted on the PlayStation Blog.

Once downloaded, you’ll find plenty to sink your sword into. The beta currently includes four modes and two maps, in addition to a wealth of weapons and items from the final game. Let us know if you plan to join the fight in the comments section below. We’ll be on the lookout for you with our giant axe.
