175w ago - Today Ubisoft has announced the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Beta is set to launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 on September 13, 2010 alongside PS3 pre-order details.
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."
