As it turns out, it's not just PlayStation Plus and select Uplay members who will get an early crack at Assassin's Creed: Revelations' online multiplayer modes. Today, Ubisoft confirmed that all PlayStation Network users will be able to engage in the latest Assassin's Creed multiplayer test phase from September 8-11.

Ezio's motley crew assembles in advance for all PS3 gamers on September 8.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations' multiplayer beta opens up access to nine characters, three maps, four modes, and eight abilities. More specifically, the nine characters offered in the beta are the Sentinel, the Vanguard, the Guardian, the Vizier, the Thespian, the Deacon, the Bombardier, the Trickster, and the Champion. According to Ubisoft, the characters sport similar behavior but have differing animations and customizable ability sets.

The maps included in the multiplayer beta for Assassin's Creed: Revelations are Knight's Hospital, Antioch, and Constantinople. Additionally, the game modes inside the trial are Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch, and Artifact Assault.

Revelations will follow the story of Ezio, who was first introduced in Assassin's Creed II. This time out, Ezio will seek out the haunts of original Assassin's Creed protagonist Altair, visiting such Middle East strongholds as the Ottoman Empire's Constantinople. There, Ezio will once again take up arms against the Templar order.

Got this on PS+. If you liked Brotherhood's online, you'll like this. This is very similar. It's basically an expansion. I don't know if it'll be worth it for the multiplayer unfortunately :(

AC has no business being multiplayer. That being said though, it is kinda fun, and definately a nice change from the usual balls to the wall AHHHHHRRRRGGGGHHHH!! multiplayer.

@ Cartr1dgeBased I'm being serious. you guys are going to be part of the first group of "real" gamers that will be able to tell the rest of us (360 AND PS3 gamers) how the game plays. Put it this way: Previews on gaming sites tend to say things like, "X or Y part of the game wasn't as polished as we would have liked". Real people leave posts like "X and Y parts of the game aren't even worth playing".

Hm well, I could never really get into Brotherhood's multiplayer, but that is FAR from the reason I love the AC series. I might check it out anyway, I've got some time to kill until gears 3 comes out and Deus Ex 1 isnt as fun as I remembered it being.

@sagameister3 - I like AC, Resistance, Killzone and Battlefield (CoD too if they were to make improvements on each game they release, which they don't), and I didn't get bored of AC: Brotherhood ''within the hour''. I guess you could say ANY multiplayer game has a 'hate it or love it' type of gameplay really. Anyway, can't wait for this beta. I saw it in the PS Store as a PS+ only beta and was hoping it'd be available to everyone at some point. Glad it happened, and quite quickly too.

If you're a fan of the AC series you'll like the multiplayer, if you're a fan of mw\bf\kz\resistance then you'll get bored of this within the hour. Kinda like a hate it or love it type of game play.

Best all around series this generation. Excellent multi-player and campaign, and a smart multi-layered story. I can't wait to try this beta out.
