Will the game itself be on sale too? I never got round to buying it but if it is I’ll totally pick it up.

Will the game also be on sale? Or….could it be a plus game for this month? *winks*

“The following Power Rankings represent the top players since the game released. These are truly the best of the best, at least as of today.”

Looks like people who just played the game the most to me. Another game rewarding time and not skill on leaderboards.

This is a really nice offer, even tough being a season pass owner i already have all the DLC for free and have got all of them up to date.

However my DLC “Collection” won’t really be complete untill you put the King Leonidas and Mj√∂lnir DLC in to the store, tough im going to assume they are going to remain pre-order exclusive? Otherwise they would have brobably arived to the store by now.

nfskingrlinworld 26 March, 2014 @ 9:15 am   8

Cool

 
khr0n1k666 26 March, 2014 @ 9:45 am   9

I’d be very interested if the game was on sale as well, been meaning to pick it up for ages.

 
vectormatic 26 March, 2014 @ 9:57 am   10

Cool stuff, i just bought GoWA last week, and free DLC is always good.

 

This game and last of us will make up 2 out of the 3 annual plus games in June, calling it now

 

wanna bet how this game will be on PS+ in April?

Hi i have been trying to find a way to complain about AMERICANS getting sony rewards whilst people here in europe are not allowed.What’s up with that you seem to give the AMERICANS everything what’s up with that do you feel they are superior or something.This is a disgrace!!!

 
jimmynumbnutz 26 March, 2014 @ 11:06 am   14

Why do you lick the boot of the AMERICAN sony?

Brako_Version_5 26 March, 2014 @ 6:01 pm   15

@ Jimmynumbnutz,

You live up to your name mate. Its all about marketing. Every region will be offered something different and no one but the marketing promoters for that particular task have a say in what goes on sale and when.

You don’t just pick an item to put on sale when you want to. You do it strategically.

genial el juego

paulaemarcio 30 March, 2014 @ 4:39 pm   17

ao inves de continuar com a guerra acabaria com ela e faria um mundo de paz

Gorgo_Rakil 2 April, 2014 @ 12:16 pm   18

so it’s the 2nd of April, 1300 hour and the DLC is still not free… is it the “Gauntlets of Jason syndrome” all over again? :)
and yes i know, i don’t have any patience! X)))

 

I’m probably just as inpatient as Gorgo_Rakil…. I just can’t wait for this awesome DLC. Hopefully this content will be updated soon…

IsmaRocco92 2 April, 2014 @ 5:53 pm   20

im still waiting too and nothing free ! :/

Davious_Maximus 3 April, 2014 @ 5:23 am   21

It is April 3, 2014 and still no FREE download content available on the Australian Playstation Store…
So this was an April Fools joke… what gives… ?

Morgan_Zone 3 April, 2014 @ 5:24 am   22

it’s april 3rd, nothing free still :(

Gorgo_Rakil 3 April, 2014 @ 8:49 am   23

still waiting for the free DLC that YOU PROMISED us 34 hours AGO!
yes, admins you can reply and give us some informations!

    Fred Dutton 3 April, 2014 @ 12:49 pm    

    Hi everyone. Unfortunately we’ve had some technical issues with this discount. We’re working on it and I’ll confirm a new start date as soon as possible.

 

I’m checking the store every 2 hours orso… when will this content be free… I mean, you promised us Sony… you…promised.
Any reply or info on the subject will be highly appreciated!

Ryusennin 3 April, 2014 @ 12:11 pm   25

That’s what I love about Sony: promises are always free and don’t cost a dime!

DarknessRasm 3 April, 2014 @ 6:37 pm   26

Well according to Tank they will start delivering the Special codes to our emails or PSN accounts.
Can’t wait to receive them plus the fix for the sale in the PSStore!

    Amanojaku88 3 April, 2014 @ 9:24 pm    

    @DarknessRasm

    I hope that you are right about that, I anxiously await the codes! ^_^

bruce19977 4 April, 2014 @ 4:29 pm   27

Its Aprill 4 and nothing new.

Morgan_Zone 5 April, 2014 @ 12:40 am   28

SERIOUSLY ,its April 5 and nothing free .nice work guys about the April fool this year

Alex_d9796 5 April, 2014 @ 7:55 am   29

Have you started sending “The Marked One” tat & “Santa Monica Studio Cape” voucher codes?

 

@ Fred Dutton: Any word about the new date yet? Since it’s very hard for anyone to understand why it would take this long to fix the discount…let alone give us any update on the situation. Like most people already mentioned, it starts to feel like a really bad April Fools joke. I know we should be patient, but there is a certain limit in our patience… so again, any info on the matter would be highly appreciated.

 

Never mind, just found the new (hidden?) article about the subject… for anyone who hasn’t read it yet, here is the link.
