Assassin's Creed Revelations Multiplayer Beta Is PS3 Exclusive
Today Ubisoft announced the details for the Assassin's Creed Revelations's beta. PS3 owners will get a chance to try out the game's multiplayer starting next month.
The beta features three maps (Knight's Hospital, Antioch, Constantinople) playable in four game modes (Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch, and Artifact Assault). You can take on the role of nine different characters: The Sentinel, The Vanguard, The Guardian, The Vizier, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Trickster and The Champion. This is said to be only a sample of the full package included in Revelations, though.
PlayStation Plus subscribers and Uplay members will get exclusive access to the beta from September 3rd to September 11th. After that, the beta will be opened up to all PS3 owners. Ubisoft confirmed to Gaming Blend that the Revelations beta will not appear on the Xbox 360. Revelations' predecessor, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, bypassed the 360 as well.
In Revelations' multiplayer, players take on the roles of Templars in training. They engage in a series of "spy-vs-spy" challenges that reward elusiveness and stealth rather than brute force. Players earn experience over time that allows them to unlock new abilities and other rewards. Revelations will have a more story-driven multiplayer than Brotherhood, with players learning more about their employer, Abstergo, as they level up.
The otherh alf of Revelations is the single-player campaign, starring Assassin's Creed II and Brotherhood hero Ezio Auditore. The graying Assassin has traveled to Constantinople in search of a powerful artifact sealed away by his ancestor (and Assassin's Creed protagonist) Altair. Players will get to control Altair in several parts through the game.
Revelations will be released on November 15th for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
