To quote: We have just announced that PlayStation Plus members get access to the Assassin's Creed Revelations BETA on September 3rd! No, seriously, this is happening!
Here is a quick glimpse of some of the things you can expect to experience in the ACR Beta (a much, much more detailed list that will be available on a special website we're creating just for the Beta, but in the meantime, you can learn more in our forums
Nine characters are available in the Beta which are all unlocked for your use at the outset. Though they share the same overall behavior, their animations differ and their ability sets are customizable. Available Characters include: The Sentinel, The Vanguard, The Guardian, The Vizier, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Trickster and The Champion.
Three maps are available in the Beta and are all unlocked from the outset. Be sure to pay attention to their layouts in-game as these maps have been tuned to allow more strategy than those in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (it's easier to break line-of-sight, for example).
• Knight's Hospital
Four modes are available in the Beta and are all unlocked from the outset. Two of these modes are returning favorites from Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, while the other two are brand new modes designed in response to player feedback. Available Modes include: Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch (NEW), and Artifact Assault (NEW).
Eight Abilities are available in the Beta, but only some are available initially while others must be unlocked by increasing your rank. Although some Abilities return from Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, you may notice some slight tweaks resulting from player feedback. Available Abilities include: Tripwire Bomb (NEW), Closure (NEW), Disguise, Fire Crackers, Throwing Knives, Smoke Bomb, Poison and Morph.
Prepare yourselves Assassins... to go undercover into the very heart of Abstergo's training grounds!
