167w 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!
