    This is definitely Sparta

    In what may be one of the coolest crossovers ever, it was announced today that players who pre-order God of War: Ascension from Gamestop will unlock King Leonidas from the film 300 as a usable character in multiplayer. More details below:

    If you’re thinking about pre-ordering God of War: Ascension, then it seems doing so from a certain retailer will net you a rather interesting cameo as a bonus.By pre-ordering the game from GameStop, you’ll be able to unlock King Leonidas as a bonus playable character for the game’s multiplayer mode. At first, this seem like a somewhat crazy cameo to put in the game, but you know—after thinking about it a bit more, it also makes perfect sense.
    “We are very excited to partner with Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment to offer you the chance to play as one of the biggest badasses in Greek history on the God of War: Ascension multiplayer battlefield,” SCEA product marketing manager Anthony Caiazzo said on the official Sony blog. “Donning King Leonidas’s red cape, iconic helmet, and armor you will stand apart as one of the ultimate warriors of Sparta. King Leonidas also comes with his iconic spear, which has its own set of unique combat moves.”
    Thoughts? Anyone think they might switch their pre-order to Gamestop?

    I really hate Gamestop, but they really know how to pull consumers strings with their marketing and exclusive thingers.




    Sparta kicking people would be cool as fuck. <_< >_>

    Nope Nope & Nope I only pre order from Amazon or Best Buy Gamestop sucks and a character isn't worth much to much when I most likely wouldn't even use it. But thanks for the info



    It is time for me to go underground

    If it's the graphic novel's Leonidas, yes. If not, no.

    I'm willing to go out on a limb and give this a shot. Since this comes out 4 days before my birthday, I think this will end up as my gift to me Along with that new Army of Two a week after this

    You also get a pretty cool poster from Gamestop for pre-ordering. This certainly would be cool to play as him though.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    They're very similar, and besides, based on what I've read you don't necessarily get Gerard's face but rather the iconic red cape, long spear, shieeld, bracers, helmet, and so on. Armor and costume pieces, not him specifically. Though that's only from the few articles I've found, and of course may be wrong .

    Even worse, then! What's the point if I don't get to be murdering people online while naked and sporting a good old-fashioned Leonidas' beard ?

    Actually he yells that infamous line before kicking the guy in the chest. If we could keep up with the 300 canon that would be great .

    I pre-ordered it from Best Buy. I got it 3 days ago, and that's 4 days before they said I'd get it. I'm not sure what the bounus was but I have a code to use for it that I will be doing tomorrow, if someone hasn't already hacked my code like they did my Armor of Brutis in AC3.
    I kissed a boy, and I liked it.
    (I can't wait to do it again.)
