PS3 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta cloaked until Oct. 4

Online multiplayer testing window for GameStop preorders of Ubisoft's stealth-oriented action adventure pushed to next month.

PlayStation 3 gamers who preordered Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood through GameStop may have experienced a moment of confusion yesterday, when their promised multiplayer beta test window did not open. As it would turn out, Ubisoft is not yet ready to open up the game's online servers for testing, saying that the beta-testing window for PS3 gamers has been pushed back in all territories to October 4.

Once it does become available, qualifying participants will gain access to an assassination-themed online testing arena, which will serve as a first public look at the game's new multiplayer component. The publisher also intends for the beta-testing period to serve as a "stress test" on its servers.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is due out for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 16 in North America and is the first title in the stealth-killing series to include a multiplayer component. For more on the new element, check out Brotherhood's Comic-Con 2010 multiplayer movie (embedded below).

@prideofNY i check out GameSpot almost every day, and noticed in the headlines that a game i know only as a single-player experience was having a beta.. so i checked it out and threw my 2 cents in. This isn't a forum dude, and this comment box was made for readers to conveniently throw their 2 cents in with ease. You guys, you guys

@TheVGamer not really actually u can get a decent one for 800$ that is if u custom build it. and i was just adding that cuz thats pretty much the biggest thing the pc has over consoles. aswell as mods that can change ur skin and whatnot. its fun.

Do you still have to pre-order to get the bata

TheVGamer

@Dark-Exsphere True. But, of course, you need a supergiga-high end PC of 2000$ to have better graphics.

@Dark-Exsphere That too - is only if your PC can handle it. Also, not everyone cares about graphics all that much.

@TheVGamer hey atleast pc versions get higher end textures. pc games always look considerably better

So PS3 version get's beta, but PC a delay? And a God-forsaken DRM?? That's bullcrap!

I've had this beat trial code for months and I'll probably never use it :P

the core gameplay is the campaign in AC. I am looking forward to that.

Doesn't matter to me, but the multiplayer does look promising. Very interesting concept.

AC is another SP game that's being force fed this MP philosophy. MP doesn't make everything better yaknow

If I actually played and cared about AC, I'd be so incredibly annoyed.

I pre-ordered it for the PS3 so I can get the beta code and then I'm gonna change it to the 360 version :)

@Barighm This is different though. Pretty much every console "beta" is more of an extended trial than a traditional beta, so my guess is it would play pretty darn good.

I don't really care to play this with other people.

LMAO so much for plus users and the whole beta access. Looks like Gamestop is going to have all non Sony Beta's on lock.

@tidus55 So true man...so true...

i think what really upsets me about this is the fact that they wait a day after the beta is suppose to start to officially announce its delayed....

Barighm

@prioritymail Don't be upset. "Beta" is just another way of saying the crappy, buggy, laggy version that's full of glitches and likely to be exploited to the point of being no fun.

@ppg4all Then what game IS worth 60 bucks?
