Jeez. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about Assassin's Creed. I've never read any of the comics or played any of the handheld games, but do you need to know much more than what's presented in the main game? Let Ubisoft show you exactly what you're missing out on:
The French publisher has also notified us that the Assassin's Creed: Revelations multiplayer beta will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3, much like it was for Brotherhood. While the beta hits on September 3rd, it'll run for just over a week and end on September 11th:
The multiplayer beta offers access to nine characters (The Sentinel, The Vanguard, The Guardian, The Vizier, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Trickster, and The Champion), three maps (Knight’s Hospital, Antioch, and Constantinople) and four playable modes.
Face off with friends in Wanted’s 8-player free-for-all and Manhunt’s four-v-four-hide-and-go-murder. These variants won’t be too different from their Brotherhood counterparts. Two new game types will also be on hand in the beta: Deathmatch and Artifact Assault. Even more modes will make it to retail when Assassin’s Creed: Revelations hits store shelves on November 15th.
