The Last of Us demo available May 31 for God of War: Ascension pre-orders

A demo for The Last of Us, Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic action adventure game, will be available May 31 for those who pre-ordered God of War: Ascension, according to a tweet today on Naughty Dog's official Twitter account.

Plans for the demo, which includes a level from the game, were announced in January. God of War: Ascension owners will be able to access the free demo through the game's main menu. Ascension will be released next Tuesday, March 12, so there's still time to pre-order the game and secure access to the demo.

In mid-February, Naughty Dog delayed the release of The Last of Us from May 7 to June 14 because "the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog's internal high standards." To hold you over, you can watch a video released last week chronicling the rise of the game's zombie-like Infected and read our hands-on impressions of the game.
