Ubisoft has announced a beta release for the multiplayer mode of the new Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the latest installment of the stealth adventure series. The multiplayer beta will be launched for PlayStation Plus members on September 3rd and will only be playable until the 11th. After that, the beta will be available for all PlayStation 3 members. The bad news for Xbox gamers is it will only be exclusive for the PlayStation 3.
The beta offers nine characters: The Vanguard, The Sentinel, The Guardian, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Champion, The Vizier and the Trickster. Unlike its predecessor’s multiplayer mode, each character has different abilities. The multiplayer beta will feature four game modes, the previously seen Manhunt and Wanted options, plus the new Artifact Assault and Deathmatch game modes.
The game’s development team has been working on the multiplayer mode since it was introduced in the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood game.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will feature all three major characters, Altaïr ibn La-Ahad, Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Desmond Miles. It will be set in Constantinople, instead of Renaissance Italy and will take place a few years after the events of Brotherhood.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will be released on November 15th for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
