Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Beta Coming To PSN On September 13th

August 5, 2010, By Christian Davis

At this years E3 Jack Trenton announced that there would be an Assassins Creed multiplayer beta coming this year. He wasn’t lying. The beta is set to release on September 13th. There is one little catch though.

First you have to be located in North America. Which is unfortunate for the rest of the planet. If you want to participate in the Assassins Creed: Brotherhood beta, you also have to pre-order the game from your local Game Stop. Unlike other betas that allow everyone who pre-orders the game to get in, this beta has a limited number of slots available, which is not fair to those who pre-order the game and do not get access to the beta. It’s set up on a first come, first serve basis which is definitely a more complicated way of doing things. If you already pre-ordered, you can bring your receipt to a GameStop starting on August 9 for entry to the beta.

This game is also going to be released on the Xbox 360 as well, but there doesn’t seem to be a beta planned for that console. Why isn’t there a 360 beta? No idea honestly, but Ubisoft must have their reason.

Here’s the Press Release below:
