Brotherhood Beta Confirmed, Pre-Order To Grab A Slot
We knew the beta test for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood would be exclusive to the PlayStation 3, but now we have the full details.
Today, Ubisoft and Gamestop have announced the pre-launch multiplayer beta for the upcoming entry in the critically acclaimed series. Exclusively available on the PS3, the beta will be open to customers who pre-order the game at GameStop in North America. You might be surprised to learn that Brotherhood won Best Online Multiplayer Game of E3 2010 by Game Critics Awards; this beta will "serve as a final stress test for the online systems." However, there are a limited number of slots available in this play test, so as of August 9, it's basically a first-come, first-served situation. If you have already pre-ordered the game, take your receipt down to the store after the date above and claim your access code. It'll be your first chance to see the new AC and to sample the all new multiplayer mode; the latter has never before been included in the franchise. Of course, Ubisoft still promises that the single-player campaign will remain just as robust as ever...and it better.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be ready to go on September 13, although the final product will be available on multiple platforms.
