God of War: Ascension will drop its mighty hammer of brutal action on the PlayStation 3 next week, but those who pre-order the game will have something else to anticipate.

As you may or may not already know, some select retailers are going to offer the Mythological Heroes Pack, which will outfit players with a variety of outfits inspired by heroic figures from Greek Mythology.

The featured heroes are Perseus, Orion, Odysseus, and Achilles, and their armor will be available for use in God of War: Ascension's multiplayer arena. You can see from the trailer that a lot of their weapons sport some pretty ridiculous moves, which should give your opponents something to fear in the heat of battle. And no one wants a giant sword coming down on their cranium, so you can bet they'll be running in fear because of you -- unless they also pre-ordered the game.

View the trailer below and wait for the March 12th, 2013 release of God of War: Ascension. Let us know if you've pre-ordered it and will be donning these legendary heroes' armor!
