Ubisoft Details Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Beta
Today, Ubisoft revealed the details on their upcoming multiplayer beta for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Starting on October 4, the multiplayer beta will be accessible to PS3 gamers who pre-order the game from GameStop in the US by September 25.
Players will be able to choose from nine characters, like the doctor, the priest, the executioner or the courtesan, and utilize their unique weaponry and special moves.
Ubisoft also detailed the two different modes that will be available in the beta:
Wanted - Adversarial mode: From six to eight players • Objective: Obtain the highest possible score by killing assigned targets. • Game session: 1 round of 10 minutes • In this game mode, players have 10 minutes to reach the higher score by assassinating other players. A target is assigned by the system and players can only kill that specific target. Interaction with the other players is not permitted unless they are either a target or a pursuer. If players kill innocents they will trigger an “open conflict”. The position of the player will be revealed to their target and then will have the ability to escape or to cancel the contract. If the target has identified one of his pursuers, he can stun him to cancel the contract and score points.
Alliance* - Cooperative mode: Three teams of two players • Objective: Obtain the highest possible score with your teammate by killing the assigned team. The teammates share the same character. • Game session: 2 rounds of 4 minutes • At the beginning of the round, a target team is assigned to each of the three teams. Those targets will not change for the entire round. During the round, players can switch between their two targets at anytime. Players will score by killing targets or escaping or stunning pursuers, but in addition, are rewarded by helping their teammate or performing cooperative actions like multiple kills in a row. At the end of the first round, all players will respawn and a new target is assigned to each team. The game session ends at the end of the second round.
* Alliance Mode will be unlocked by the community
The game will also support two different maps, Rome and Castle Gandolfo, with a third map, Siena, to be unlocked by the community. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood will release on November 16 for Xbox 360 and PS3, with a PC version on the way in Q1 2011.
