168w ago - Ubisoft Montreal Community Developer Gabe Graziani has shared a new Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Beta PS3 trailer for those without early access alongside more of the video game's multiplayer details today.
To quote: I am very excited to present a new multiplayer persona: The Smuggler.
A prowler of the ports, she hunts among the docks and has been known to venture into cities if the coin seems worthwhile. Using a hidden blade as her weapon of choice, her victims rarely even get the chance to admire the beauty obscured by her hood.
Best of all, The Smuggler will be available in the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Beta! In order to unlock this multiplayer persona, you will have to earn enough experience points to reach level 17, so get crackin'!
Early Beta Access
I'd also like to mention how you can get early access to our Multiplayer Beta! Those of you in PAL (in participating European countries) territories could acquire an early peek at the ACB Beta just by being members of PlayStation Plus!
So, be sure to use Eagle Vision on your inboxes so you don't miss out on a chance to get at the multiplayer goodness a full week early!

The Brotherhood Beta will also feature new multiplayer content, and Ubisoft plans to use it as a stress test for the upcoming game.
To quote from IGN (linked above): "You may be wondering how exactly to snag one of these spots in the new beta. Well there's the cath. Entry in the beta is open to everyone who preordered the game through GameStop.
Beta keys will be released starting August 9, meaning that all those who preorder on or after the 9th will receive a beta token that grants them access to the beta, while seats remain.
Those who have already preordered may take their receipt into GameStop starting the 9th to receive a beta token.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood ships November 16, 2010."
