God of War Ascension Collector's Edition Confirmed & Detailed

According to the official Sony’s blog, here’s a detailed description of the contents within the God of War: Ascension Collector’s Edition:

Last time around for God of War III, our Ultimate Collector’s Edition took our fans by storm, so we are pleased to announce a truly special Collector’s Edition again for God of War: Ascension. We know you’ve been asking for the ultimate collectible, a Kratos statue, that will be the prized 8” centerpiece of this edition. The CE is also jam-packed in a premium steel book game case, with the official game soundtrack (digital version), a PS3 dynamic theme and PSN avatar pack, double XP points for multiplayer (more on that later), and a DLC pass to unlock all future DLC releases at no additional cost. The team is working hard on a dedicated post-launch multiplayer experience, XP and DLC are going to be treasures you will want. Get started with the Collector’s Edition. You’ll be able to pick up the Collector’s Edition for just $79.99 on March 12 next year. We’ll have more information and pictures of the content in the near future, so hang tight.

In addition to it being a limited run, all pre-orders will also receive the Mythological Heroes Multiplayer DLC Pack, available globally through participating retailers.

Further cementing the announcement, online giant Amazon have listed the God of War: Ascension Collector’s Edition for pre-order earlier today, which despite Sony already officially outing the CE; Amazon felt the need to remove the link anyway.

No images are currently available at the moment and you may find the odd gaming website listing the God of War Omega Collection product image as the God of War Ascension Collector’s Edition, but these are two different things.

We’ll bring you more details on the latest CE out of Santa Monica when we get our grubby hands on fresh details.
