Total Recall: Extended Cut, starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel, will be available in-stores on December 26. It will contain a voucher to download the demo from the PlayStation Store, reports Eurogamer.
Available throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, the single-player demo is the same as the one on show at this year's E3 Gaming Expo.
Announced earlier this year, the upcoming prequel will be the first entry in the series to include multiplayer support, enabling up to eight players to compete in a variety of game modes and customise their characters.
Much like the upcoming God of War movie, Ascension will present a more human side of Kratos, set in a time before his desire for vengeance consumed him.
The storyline takes place before the events of the first God of War and sees the Spartan warrior attempt to break free of Ares's bonds.
A Collector's Edition of the game will be available alongside the regular version at launch.
The collector's pack contains a soundtrack CD, a Kratos statue, an online pass for future DLC, a SteelBook case, a code for double XP and a dynamic theme and avatar pack.
God of War: Ascension will be released for PlayStation 3 on March 12, 2013 in North America.
