Ubisoft has revealed that virtual killers looking for an early taste of the new multiplayer portion of the upcoming action-stealth continuation Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will have their chance on October 4 when the multiplayer beta lands exclusively on PlayStation 3.
According to VG247, Ubisoft will be passing along beta invites to those people who’ve preordered any of the various versions of the game. Players will have their pick of nine characters, two maps--Rome and Castle Gandolfo--and will be able to enjoy the multiplayer stealth slaying with up to eight other players in either Alliance or Wanted mode.
Brotherhood is scheduled for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 November 16, however Ubisoft confirmed today that the PC version has been pushed to Q1 2011. It isn’t clear why at this point, but separate release isn’t terribly surprising either, given that Assassin’s Creed II released for PC in March 2010, four months after the console versions. I'm waiting to hear back from Ubisoft about the delay, so I'll keep you posted.
