Today Ubisoft unveiled its plans to bring the world of Assassin’s Creed Revelations to the homes of PlayStation 3 gamers. That is, actually, if they are PlayStation Plus or Select Uplay members. The beta will open September 3, 2011 and run until September 11.
The following details brought to you by the Assassin’s Creed Revelations website:
Nine characters are available in the BETA, and all can be used right from the outset. They share the same overall behaviour, but their animations differ and their ability sets are completely customisable. Available characters include: The Sentinel, The Vanguard, The Guardian, The Vizier, The Thespian, The Deacon, The Bombardier, The Trickster and The Champion.
There are three maps to play in the BETA, all available from the outset.

There are four game modes to play in the BETA, all available at the start. Two of the modes are fan-favourites 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 Artefact Assault (NEW).
Eight abilities are available in the BETA, but only some of them are usable from the outset. Others must be unlocked by increasing your rank. Although some of the abilities return from Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, you may notice some slight tweaks based on feedback given to us by the fans. Available abilities include: Tripwire Bomb (NEW), Closure (NEW), Disguise, Fire Crackers, Throwing Knives, Smoke Bomb, Poison and Morph. We look forward to meeting you, and hopefully hunting you down a bunch of times on PS3… Watch your backs!
