A playable demo of The Last of Us will become available to owners of God of War: Ascension on May 31, the in-game countdown clock suggests.

The countdown clock, which is accessible via a "The Last of Us Early Access" button on God of War: Ascension's main menu, currently ticks down to 5pm GMT on May 31, two weeks before The Last of Us goes on sale on June 14.

Though Sony has yet to officially announce a date for the demo, the demo is expected to include access to a chapter of the single-player game, and be released to non-God of War: Ascension owners at a later date.

God of War: Ascension goes on sale next Friday, March 15. To find out what we thought of it, head through to our God of War Ascension review.
