God of War: Ascension’s gruesome single-player demo will slash its way onto the PlayStation Network on 26th February in North America, the Gods have declared. European warriors will presumably have to wait until 27th February to get their gory mitts on the gameplay teaser.

If you’re participating in the title’s Rise of the Warriors social game, you’ll be able to unlock access to the demo a few days earlier on the 20th February. The catch is that you’ll need to be on the winning side. You can find out more about the online experience through here, just try to ignore the stench of dried blood.
