Assassin’s Creed Revelation Beta Opens to PlayStation Plus September 3rd

Gabriel Graziani's Avatar + Posted by Gabriel Graziani on Aug 10, 2011 // Community Developer, Ubisoft

Hey there PlayStation Assassins! Aren’t you LUCKY?! We have just announced that PlayStation Plus members get access to the Assassin’s Creed Revelations BETA on September 3rd! No, seriously, this is happening! Here is a quick glimpse of some of the things you can expect to experience in the ACR Beta (a much, much more detailed list that will be available on a special website we’re creating just for the Beta, but in the meantime, you can learn more in our forums.

Characters

Nine characters are available in the Beta which are all unlocked for your use at the outset. Though they share the same overall behavior, their animations differ and their ability sets are customizable. Available Characters include: The Sentinel, The Vanguard, The Guardian, The Vizier, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Trickster and The Champion.

Assassin’s Creed Revelation Beta for PS3

Maps

Three maps are available in the Beta and are all unlocked from the outset. Be sure to pay attention to their layouts in-game as these maps have been tuned to allow more strategy than those in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood (it’s easier to break line-of-sight, for example).

· Knight’s Hospital

· Antioch

· Constantinople

Modes

Four modes are available in the Beta and are all unlocked from the outset. Two of these modes are returning favorites from Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, while the other two are brand new modes designed in response to player feedback. Available Modes include: Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch (NEW), and Artifact Assault (NEW).

Abilities

Eight Abilities are available in the Beta, but only some are available initially while others must be unlocked by increasing your rank. Although some Abilities return from Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, you may notice some slight tweaks resulting from player feedback. Available Abilities include: Tripwire Bomb (NEW), Closure (NEW), Disguise, Fire Crackers, Throwing Knives, Smoke Bomb, Poison and Morph.

Prepare yourselves Assassins… to go undercover into the very heart of Abstergo’s training grounds!

Should I buy the 1st game before the rest? People have said constantly that the 1st one isn’t very good, but without it it won’t make sense..
Or should I just go on to the 2nd game and proceed from there?

    Yes, Uplay users will also have access to the ACR BETA on PS3… although, you get a lot of cool stuff with PlayStation Plus, so you might want to consider becoming a member!

@6 with the power of the internet you can read a wiki about what happened in number 1. I would recommend playing that at all. I played maybe the first 3 hours on the 360 before switching to number 2 on the ps3 and I have to say that I did not miss anything.

Sweet! More beta for Plus! Hope I can immerse myself in this MP more than Brotherhood…

+ TheUndertaker85 on August 10th, 2011 at 10:40 am said:

Very nice. I’m glad to see the AC:R beta starting up so we get a chance to put in some input for the game way before it launches. It’s good to see Plus members getting into more betas too.

Any word about how long the beta will run?

+ Kirkpad on August 10th, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

Is this the multiplayer concept that was ripped from an indie game and then trashed by Ubisoft (ie, not marketed at at all)? I like it when creative geniuses create a concept, and then don’t get recognized for it. I believe it was called “The Ship”… or maybe it was the “Bloody Good Time” gameplay. Either way, I refuse to play this on the grounds that was not meant for the Assassins Creed universe.

Is every Uplay member gonna get the beta? Or is it just a select group of them?

Oh, it was worse than I remember. Here’s the neogaf thread title:

I’m sick of people complaining that they don’t get into exclusive betas while PS+ members do. Since the beginning of PS+ it was announced that members would get access to exclusive betas… sign-up or shut-up.

+ kabirdsall14 on August 10th, 2011 at 11:22 am said:

WHOOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!!! I am excited! This is my favorite game franchise other than LBP! I love AC because its awesome and I love history :D

Thanks Ubisoft/AC Devs!

:D

+ lisatsunami on August 10th, 2011 at 11:23 am said:

Oh, & to the person who asked about AC1, I went backwards & bought it when plus users got it for an incredible ten bucks. Yes, a little repetitive & the actor for Altair was pretty bad, & worst part is no trophy support, but I’m still glad I played it & now have the full background. In fact, the scene from the trailer for ACR, where Ezio sees the ghost, I guess, of Altair? If you play 1, you’ll understand the significance of the location & –possible spoiler alert– how Ezio can survive that scene.

This beta may just be my very first online multiplayer foray, so please don’t gang bang me!

@30, guitarded, I agree completely. But we have more than our share of complainers here.

I’m going to troll the xbot blog & see if their users are as infantile as some of ours Do the have an xbot blog?

+ FeistFan on August 10th, 2011 at 12:07 pm said:

@killercroc119 – first game wasn’t good by comparison to the second, perhaps — but it’s pretty awesome on its own. You probably wouldn’t enjoy going back to it if you started with one of the others, but I thought it was fun. And there are some story elements that will make the second even better (and it’s cheap now – I picked it up used for a song, then traded it in for AC2, finished that, and am considering getting ACB – with the new one coming out, the last one ought to be dropping in price soon).

I think most of what this post is talking about is the multiplayer part of the newest AC — that’s not even an option in AC1 or AC2, which were single player only (which is fine with me, but might be a surprise for some).

I loved participating in the Brotherhood beta. It’s actually what got me to purchase the game in the first place.

Sure hope the invites come from Ubi, since the PSN Hack I no longer receive PS related emails – even after calling the no-help help desk.

That’s really cool it’s in less than a month!

Just to confirm, Uplay is the thing you can get rewards with in-game, so if you are able to get those rewards you are a Uplay member? So am I entitled to join the beta? Please reply!

    Uplay members will have an opportunity to participate in the ACR BETA as well, and we’ll have full details as to how to get access shortly.

    That said, PlayStation Plus is the most sure-fire way to be certain that you will get in!

Alright, I’v had problems with the narrowminded bashing Ubisoft has approached with the Templars… But why is Ezio wearing a huge Hospitilar patee on his chest…? I don’t understand any longer…
