Ubisoft has revealed some details about the upcoming PlayStation 3-only multiplayer beta of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and I don't think a lot of you are going to be thrilled about it. Why? You can access the beta, which starts on September 13, only by pre-ordering the game with GameStop.
Ubisoft says there will only be a "limited number of beta slots available," with GameStop tokens available at a first-come, first-sever basis. So run on over to your local GameStop and get your pre-order on, I guess. The retailer is said to have beta keys available starting next Monday, August 9. If you've already pre-ordered Brotherhood, no worries -- just bring in your receipt or proof of reserve to receive a token.
Access to the multiplayer beta isn't the only thing you'll get for pre-ordering with GameStop -- you'll also get an exclusive multiplayer character, Harlequin. I had a chance to go hands on with the multiplayer just before E3 this year, and it was surprising awesome. Check out my full preview for more details.
