The Last of Us demo to be bundled with God of War: Ascension

Exclusive early access to Naughty Dog's next title in March

PlayStation will include a The Last of Us demo with each copy of God of War: Ascension , the company has announced.

God of War: Ascension owners will have exclusive access to the new demo, Sony said, suggesting that the demo will not go on general release.

Naughty Dog's new IP is widely regarded as one of the most promising triple-A projects currently in development, scooping up numerous awards at last year's E3 event in Los Angeles, while Ascension is SCE Santa Monica studio's latest title in the famously brutal God of War series.

Sony has confirmed a God of War: Ascension release date of March 12, 2013 in the US and March 15 in the UK. The Last of US release date has been pinned down as May 7.
