Ubisoft Provides Brotherhood Beta Info
The Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta will start on October 4 and if you want in, all you have to do is pre-order from GameStop before September 25.
Today, the publisher released details on what to expect from the multiplayer beta test. You'll be able to choose from no less than 9 different characters like the doctor, priest, courtesan, and executioner, and remember that each character has his or her own set of weaponry and skills. Furthermore, "up to 8 simultaneous players will be able to use new ways to assassinate their targets in two different modes." That information is as follows:
Wanted - Adversarial mode: From six to eight players
Objective: Obtain the highest possible score by killing assigned targets.
Game session: 1 round of 10 minutes
"In this game mode, players have 10 minutes to reach the higher score by assassinating other players. A target is assigned by the system and players can only kill that specific target. Interaction with the other players is not permitted unless they are either a target or a pursuer. If players kill innocents they will trigger an “open conflict”. The position of the player will be revealed to their target and then will have the ability to escape or to cancel the contract. If the target has identified one of his pursuers, he can stun him to cancel the contract and score points."
Alliance - Cooperative mode: Three teams of two players
Objective: Obtain the highest possible score with your teammate by killing the assigned team. The teammates share the same character.
Game session: 2 rounds of 4 minutes
"At the beginning of the round, a target team is assigned to each of the three teams. Those targets will not change for the entire round. During the round, players can switch between their two targets at anytime. Players will score by killing targets or escaping or stunning pursuers, but in addition, are rewarded by helping their teammate or performing cooperative actions like multiple kills in a row. At the end of the first round, all players will respawn and a new target is assigned to each team. The game session ends at the end of the second round."
Both modes will be available for sampling on two separate maps: Rome and Castel Gandolfo, with a chance at unlocking a third map, Siena. Ready to try?
