God of War: Ascension is out this March and Sony has decided to team up with the History Channel to cross-promote the new game and the upcoming Vikings TV series by offering a special bonus weapon for the game's multiplayer exclusively from Best Buy.
God of War: Ascension will not only let players take protagonist Kratos

Besides the unique hammer modeled after that of Norse god Thor, the voucher also unlocks, according to the PS blog
