Assassin’s Creed 3 Not Getting Multiplayer Beta

The Assassin’s Creed franchise is one of the more popular IPs in the gaming industry. Bad news struck when it was stated that there will be no multiplayer beta for Assassin’s Creed 3. For all the AC fans this comes as a crushing blow, as most were expecting publisher Ubisoft to whet our appetites with a customary free multiplayer beta period in anticipation of the game’s release later this year.

The precedent had been set in the past with games such as Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Assassin’s Creed Brotherood when players were able to get access to those games well prior to the street release date on a special select-only basis. According to the original source, Xboxgamezone, there’s just no time to have a polished beta and they’re looking to avoid backlash for what is certainly understood to be a double-edged sword when releasing any beta to the public. It’s stated that there’s simply too much to refine in the actual game and the development team did not want to take time away by investing hours into developing and polishing a beta and then supporting it for some time after its release. Nevertheless, there’s something to be said for not messing with success as the feedback often gained in phased beta releases often garners feedback critical to a game’s eventual release. The team did say that Ubisoft has a dedicated group specifically targeting multiplayer support post-launch to make sure the game is supported and tweaked appropriately. In addition to that, it was also mentioned that community events have already been mapped out and will be made known right around launch.

Assassin’s Creed 3 will be released on October 30th, 2012 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (with a PC release coming later in 2012), so while many gamers might lament the fact that they won’t get a beta, they can take solace in the fact that the game is just around the corner. There has been some new details about the game, specifically, that the PlayStation 3 edition will be getting some extra love in the form of some exclusive content. According to the folks at Amazon, the PS3 version of the latest Assassin’s Creed incarnation will receive 60 minutes of “exclusive gameplay.” Now, what that actually means is anyone’s guess but the fact that PS3 gamers will have bragging rights over PC and XBox 360 gamers is definitely something we’re interested in learning more about.

Assassin’s Creed 3 will take place around the time of the American Revolution, from 1753 to 1783, with gamers taking on the role of “Connor” – a man of English and Native American blood. Many historical figures will play major roles in the game, including George Washington, Ben Franklin and Lord Cornwallis. Historical cities such as Boston, New York and Philadelphia have been stated to be appearing in this incarnation of the AC series. This game has been called the biggest in Ubisoft’s history on more than one occasion with gamers and critics alike applauding what they’ve seen so far. Previews have shown Connor armed with a Tomahawk and other weapons as he’s used his skills to assist in the efforts against the Red Coats and liberate the United States to a sovereign nation.
