Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Beta Open to All PlayStation Plus Subscribers Today

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi everyone,

In late September, we announced that select PlayStation Plus subscribers would be invited to participate in the PlayStation-exclusive Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood beta. Today, we are happy to announce that we have worked with Ubisoft to open this opportunity to all PlayStation Plus subscribers! Gamers interested in getting a first glimpse at the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood multiplayer mode can access the beta from the PlayStation Plus category on the PlayStation Store.

We would also like to thank you for your continued feedback on PlayStation Plus. Your comments and submissions to PlayStation.Blog Share truly do get taken under consideration and help shape the offering as we move forward.

Be sure to visit Ubisoft’s forum page to submit feedback on the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood beta. Enjoy the beta!

Finally. This is how PS+ should work in the future. All PS+ members should be able to get into these types of betas regardless and the same should be for Killzone 3’s beta as well.

Woot! That’s the third BETA in a month. Dead Nation, Red Faction, now this. Here’s hoping I can grab a theme quickly enough.

BeerManMike, its not even Sony’s game. My god, this community never stops. Lost a customer? LOL once again, an embarrassment to be a PS3 owner.

Trying to push me to buy PS+ without cloud saving will NOT work.

Also, Grace Chen, where is LBP on the US Store? Euros have been able to buy it for almost 2 months, what the hell man?

Thank you and Please keep it that way to all games that get betas. These were one of the many perks on why we Payed PS+. Please make sure that if there is a Beta, open it up to all PS+ users.

thanks again.

Anyone else think Sony caved in on this one after all the complaints on Tuesday..?
3rd week in of buying into 13 months of Plus and so far the only thing of use is a move add on for a bowling game I brought when it was 1st released, wow thanks Sony… good way to support your customers.

KwietStorm, I know it’s not Sony’s game, where did you get that from? Sony is enforcing (setting up) this whole “If you have PSN+ you get to beta test the game” thing, the AC:B devs didn’t force Sony to do it. Paying to beta test a game is stupid, do people who pay, better at testing than those that don’t? Though so. Any game that has a beta test or demo (that i wasn’t already going to buy) that is only for PSN+ members, i won’t buy on principle. So yea, they lost a customer for both the game and PSN+ as some people have principles, a silly little carrot on a stick move by Sony isn’t going to change it, even though all you idiots are buying into it for $50 a pop. (lol, rip off)

downloading it now, I’ve heard good things about it so far

Dear game company marketers:

Please stop calling demo’s ‘betas’.

That is all.

IrishHater said:

October 7th, 4:20 pm

Love it Sony. I am glad you stepped up and figured out a way to make this happen for your loyal PS Plus members. This is how it should be on every demo/beta. You should persuade all game developers to grant access of their betas to all PS Plus members or at least strongly encourage it. The stronger you push the more developers will do it, and then the more PS Plus members sign up to get access. Big revolving circle that I am sure you are already aware of, but hey why not mention it just to make sure!

Thanks again.

Hey, can you ask the guys at ubisoft to PLEASE release the POP collection in NA. Kind of brain dead to release that in one region when there is no real reason to not release it here. Same disc can be used and everything. Probably could even use the same packaging too.

Lord_Ka1n said:

October 7th, 4:24 pm

they are betas, not demos.

does that maybe explain why they’re called betas instead of demos?


October 7th, 4:25 pm

HIP HIP HORRAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!! Finally Sony might be doing something right for Plus members!! From now on Plus members like us should get into EVERY BETA!! Once that happens NO ONE WILL COMPLIANE, we will RE-SUB, and MORE PEOPLE WILL SUB that HAVE NOT!!! See how it works now Sony? Good!!

FredNation said:

October 7th, 4:31 pm

Yes! Thank you both! Now I wish Killzone 3 will do the same and be for all PS+ members.

I was really mad that the US PSN+ members didn’t have access to this beta.

Thanks =]

fijski8 said:

October 7th, 4:46 pm

Great work! Bet this will boost ps+ sales bigtime. I bought 15 months on day 1.
Now about these NA LBP2 beta invites…….

I’ve already preordered AC:Brotherhood, but I’m so excited to play this, I’ll definitely be downloading it tonight! Thank you Sony and Ubisoft for listening and opening this to all PS+ subscribers, you’re making my money spent worthwhile.

MadmanV10 said:

A good item for PS+ members to be sure.

But don’t pull the “We worked it out with ubisoft…”. It’s quite obvious you were afraid of losing your PS+ subscribers and scrambled to do damage control on the KZ3 beta among ALL OTHER FAILED PROMISES.

But again…a good thing.

I just wish Grace wasn’t the one running this show anymore. I have a hunch most of this mess is her fault entirely.

rougegoat said:

October 7th, 4:54 pm

This is pretty fantastic, and I’m glad to see that(with the Killzone announcement earlier) you guys learned the lesson to be very specific as to what gives you access to the beta. You last post on this could have avoided a lot of user grief by just adding, “Select PSN+ members initially, but it will be open to every PSN+ member later this week.” Glad to see that’s being covered in future beta announcements.

Lou0wnZ said:

October 7th, 5:19 pm

I completely agree so. I now see that Sony really care about its costumers. With such a team, i believe psn+ will have much better stuff coming to us.

darthlego said:

October 7th, 5:21 pm

I have been liking PS+ better than I have for a few months. But I still want to get into the LBP 2 beta.

adolson said:

October 7th, 5:34 pm

This coupled with the day-one discount on Alien Breed: Impact are two nice indications that Plus is evolving into more than a service that gives me everything I already had months/years ago. Much appreciated – keep it coming!
