Assassin's Creed Brotherhood beta finally goes live

Gamers across the country were flummoxed when they entered their beta codes on their PS3 systems on September 13 - as instructed - and received nothing but an error message. The game's publisher Ubisoft didn't even say anything about it until contacted by the media. At that time, it had no information as to when the beta would actually be available.

Now, out of the blue, Ubisoft has pushed it out. Finally.

The company's community developer Gabriel Graziani posted the announcement on the official PlayStation Blog, but failed to recognize the weeks-long delay. But it is actually real now. It's up and running. Those beta codes given to pre-orderers will now unlock the download, and "select" PlayStation Plus subscribers can also access the beta as well (although the angry comments on the PS Blog post would seem to indicate some confusion on that matter.)

Xbox 360 users will never be able to access the beta. Sony struck a deal with Ubisoft to be the exclusive platform for the online game test. So for the non-PS3-owning assassin wannabes, the best you'll get right now is being able to check out this latest trailer:

    I never liked those racing side missions in AC2, and the multiplayer mode just looks like a lot of chasing. I hope the single player mode does something more interesting.

    @ChrisAntista whats the point of paying extra and the you still have a slim chance to be apart of the beta, thats ridiculous

    had it for a while with plus, they did say on the site that its only plus members that live in Australia/New Zealand and a few other places that i cant remember at the moment that would get it, its funny cause i also won a code for it so now me, my cousin who also has plus and the friend i gave the code to can all slit each others throats online, it is awesome :)

    Meh, beta will not last for long, and will have lotza glitches. I don't mind. and chrisat928, AC is not for everyone. I personally loved the second, and still have fun in it just running around stabbing people. I know I'll love this one!

    Well, I guess it's SORTA fair for 360 owners to get the shit end of the deal *grumble grumble moan*

    I have to say. Being in NA I had to wait for some time to get in. And while it's not yet perfected, it's still a blast.
  • chrisat928 - October 6, 2010 12:41 a.m.

    Don't worry 360 only owners, ya ain't missing much. It's terrible. I can't recommend it to anyone.

    @F4G1TR0N Good to know. Went and read the PlayStation blog comments and a great many people are pissed about some inability to get in. Apparently, the beta was open to "select" PlayStation Plus subscribers and not EVERY PlayStation Plus subscriber, and there's been a giant misunderstanding? I dunno... PS: I'm jealous and I hate you

    Dude been playing the beta and it kicks ass!
