UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES BETA DETAILS FOR ASSASSIN’S CREED® BROTHERHOOD

London, UK — September 9 2010 — Today Ubisoft® announces that as of October 4th 2010, the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer beta will be accessible exclusively on PS3TM to anyone that pre-ordered the game in standard, Auditore or Codex edition.

In the Multiplayer beta, players will have the opportunity to choose from nine different characters such as the doctor, the priest, the executioner or the courtesan, try their unique deadly weapons and discover their signature moves.

Up to eight players simultaneously will be able to use new ways to assassinate their targets in two different modes:

Wanted - challenges players to get the higher score by killing their assigned targets and escaping their hunters in clever ways.

Alliance - allows players to compete cooperatively in teams of two, fulfill contracts and confuse enemies in tandem.

Both modes will be playable on two different maps located in Rome and Castel Gandolfo.

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is scheduled to release on November 18th 2010 on Xbox 360 and PS3. It will be available on PC in Q1 2011.

When you pre-order the game, from a participating retailer - they will either email you, or give you a special 'pre-order code' - this may be at the time you complete the pre-order, instore or shortly after via email.

This 'pre-order code' is NOT a download token for the beta - this is important to know.


Once you have this code you can then access the special www.assassinscreed.com/vipbeta (http://www.assassinscreed.com/vipbeta) site.

Sign in with your Ubi.com account [the one you use for the forum, for example]

Enter your pre-order code [and make sure you enter it correctly as printed]

Then Ubi will email you a download token to the registered email account, a couple of days before the beta goes 'live' - at present we do not have a date set for it, so keep an eye on the forums /website.

It's worth checking that your Ubi.com account info is upto date, and double check your email address in the account settings is valid http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The UK beta application process, as well as some other regions may well be different from the US.

For example: when there are details of the US beta application process - they will appear on the US version of the AC website.

Trying to use the UK site to register for the beta may fail..

1, you need to live in the UK for the site to work correctly.

2, You need to have pre-ordered the game from a participating UK retailer - to get a pre-order code.


If you meet both of those - then the site should work for you.

People from different regions please only check your own regions website.


Some retailers may already know, other may not - either way - the website or your retailer should have the info pretty soon.

Places may be limited - however they will be limited to your region, so if no one can get it, then you do not have to panic just yet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

it depends on which retailer u bought (pre-order) the game from.. just some retailers are partecipating at ACB Beta promotion.
check it out at ubisoft official site (or ACB official site).
i'm going to pre-order my treassssssure tomorrow morning :P (+bonuses edition obviously)

sorry 4 bad english ^_^

p.s. however...your question is correct... Ubisoft assured that everyone who bought the game (before beta revelations) from associated retailers would have had the beta...the question is...

I have 2 questions:

Just log in a preorder it from the UK its ok we can be trusted mate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif i dont know what a BETA is so sorry </div></BLOCKQUOTE>


Well, after it sends me to the UK homepage, nothing happens. I click "Register for the beta" and it tells me to log in again. It is like a circle. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

you should be able to login using your forum login(in your case Yapster11) and that should take you to a page with some instructions, a link to participating retailers and a box to enter you code with a validate button next to it(you only get three tries to validate so make sure you have the right code before entering it)

as far as i know it's working as i just logged in as i typed this

Australia, has it been confirmed that places in the US are doing it? i can get to where i enter the pre-order code to register, and gives me a link to find participating retailers, although it seems to just list all that i can pre-order the game from, not who is part of the beta

hopefully one of the mods will come along with an answer soon

sorry i couldn't help

07-29-2010, 11:42 AM
from what i understood through looking at the beta site and what Shade told us, when you pre-order from a participating retailer you will be given a code which you enter on the website to register for the beta, and then when it is released Ubi will email you the code to get the beta

I am getting to the screen where it says "login, enter code, confirmation", etc, but when I log in it sends me to assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/brotherhood. I have tried this on 3 different computers and still no success. Are you from the UK because maybe it denies me because I am from the US.

Im getting pretty restless about this infamous Beta Code that im probably never gonna get!!!

Theres also probably some catch that will prevent me from getting the code because "somehow" someone else will get my code...

I am starting to think that we should all just give up on the rumoured Beta Code...

Untill I get an Email or a phone call...
Ther is no code!!!

But that's for EB Games and it works for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

It might be different for other places but i don't think UBI contact you, your retailer does!

Hi i pre-ordered ACB from game stop and they did not ask me for my email address when i was purchasing it. They did ask for my phone number tho. Will they be calling me with the code when the beta comes out since they did not get my email address?

You will receive an E-mail 2 days before the beta (date not confirmed yet) with the code for PSN.

This first post will be updated when new information becomes available, so please check it regularly!

Question: 'How do I get the PS3 beta in the UK?'

Answer: By doing the following...

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Step 1 : you pre order the game
<LI>Step 2 : the retailer gives you a Ubisoft code
<LI>Step 3 : you enter your code on the following page www.assassinscreed.com/vipbeta (http://www.assassinscreed.com/vipbeta)
<LI>Step 4 : you got confirmation that your code has been accepted
<LI>Step 5 : you receive your official PSN code a few days before the Beta starts
<LI>Step 6 : you enter your code online, download the beta and in the end, you can play!

[/list]

Some important things to remember and check:

Make sure the retailer you order from is part of the beta promotion - check the official website for details: Click here to see the pre order site. (http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/brotherhood/teaserpreorder/preorder.php?utm_source=CRM-EMEA&utm_medium=100729-***&utm_content=&utm_campaign=CRM-EMEA-100729-***)

If you have any questions about the pre order code, please contact the retailer.

When you get the code, depends on the retailer - some may send it straight away, others may send just before the beta launches - if your worried, please contact them directly.

The above information on the process of claiming a beta download token and website access is only valid for the UK promotion.


If you are in a different region, such as North America, the above website may not work correctly for you, so please check your own regions website for details of the beta promotion.

Presently there are no published details of the beta for North America, however as the beta approaches this will change, so please check the main assassin's creed website for further details to make sure you do not miss out!

This post will be updated as soon as information on how to obtain the PS3 beta in other regions becomes available.

Thanks for your time in reading this.

i bought assassin's creed special edition for ps3 from game.co.uk (there was a link on the acb site) and they sent an online receipt to my email, and they didnt give me a code, i asked them why and they said they are not participating in the beta :O http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif helpp will they, or shall i cancel my pre order and get it from play.com instead?

I will try and find out for you, however it may be quicker to speak to Game directly to see why the offer has been removed.

Hopefully they are still giving codes out - I have just tried to call them on your behalf, but being a Sunday they are closed.

If you fill in an online question - they should be able to get the answer to you asap.


I have also set an internal email to try and find out, since the retailers are in charge of handing out the first code, we have to check with them etc.

This applies to the UK - I can't get details for other regions, were they have not yet announced the beta offer yet, so please do not think I am ignoring you - I'm not.

Bad news...


Appears that Game.co.uk have run out of beta codes.. so I'm sorry to say that they won't be able to send one out to you, that explains why the offer is not on the website.

However... Game retail stores - should have the codes still - they may have a few spare, but it depends on the store - so may be a good idea to call your local store if you're still after a code http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Play.com still have them at the time of this post.

Once again, U.S. gets straight up shafted... The U.S is getting the beta.. no one has ever said otherwise.. apart from un-informed store staff, which is understandable due to the fact that how you get it, is still being decided..

you may have to pre-order the game, or it may just be a simple 'click here to get a code' type application..

Until the NA sort out how it works, anything else is just guess work.

So lets not stir up any 'them and us' feelings - since everyone in the regions stated on the beta site, WILL get it.. when and how varies..

If you want to question NA's approach - you could try contacting support for your region and they will note your complaints http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Same goes for anyone else, concerned about the lack of info.

Guys, stop treating the Beta like it's a demo, because it's not. Betas are simply for testing purposes only. I don't see why everyone is so furious about not being able to fix some bugs...

I think it's good that the beta isn't public. Less people testing the beta means less mistreating it as a demo, if you ask me. I don't plan on participating in the beta, because I don't feel like playing a glitchy version of a game I can play two months later.

whether or not its a tad glitchy, its still a working build of the multiplayer game. Though it will not be as polished as the final product.

Of course it is proper to relise that it is for testing purposes, the majorty of the testing is done via playing the game like you would regularly. though intentionally trying to break the game can be fun, lol.

Didn't see Oatkeeper's post above, beat me to it. Here's my original post with some other soruces:

Here it is folks, the long awaited information about how to get the BETA in North America:

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/08...ping-to-psn-sept-13/ (http://www.joystiq.com/2010/08/05/assassins-creed-brotherhood-beta-leaping-to-psn-sept-13/)

From Joystiq: "Ubisoft has announced a start date of September 13 -- and remember, it's exclusive to PS3. The only way to get access to the beta in North America (for now, at least) is by pre-ordering the game at your local GameStop.

There are apparently only a limited number of slots available in the beta, so tokens will be doled out to customers on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you already pre-ordered, you can bring your receipt to a GameStop starting on August 9 for entry. "


Here's the link to GameStops website for ACB with Beta details: http://www.gamestop.com/Catalo...spx?product_id=77862 (http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=77862)

For questions about Play.com orders, you really need to contact them - but having a quick look myself - the normal edition also says about the beta offer - so I guess it's fine?

Play.com (http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStation3/4-/13461457/Assassin-Creed-Brotherhood/Product.html)

The first post contains info on when Play will be sending out the codes.


Just an update for people posting dates etc for the beta to start.

Any date you see published by any site, other than the official site, myself or other Ubi staff, should be treated as rumour or speculation.

No date for the beta has been set yet, but when it is - you guys will be the first to know.

08-06-2010, 12:08 PM
Well according to the Press Release furnished to Joystiq as well as the GameStop AC:B Product site, the beta is starting on 9/13. Interesting enough, according to GameStop the Beta only lasts two weeks, saying the following:
" Beta begins 9/13/2010, and ends 9/27/2010."

I hope the end date is a mistake or that the end date is just the end of beta testing but testers will be allowed to keep playing the beta build or subsequent releases afterwards.

Lame, but I wont complain. Two weeks is better than nothing I just hope I don't get slammed with exams or professors shafting me with homework. lol.

I hope they'll have a few rounds of BETAs or something with this just being the first one and then maybe they give us a new mode or a updated build to retest a few weeks later. If not oh well like I said better than nothing.

All those who will post beta =/= demo I get that but it's still exciting to get to play with something before anyone else and be given the opportunity to improve a game you love. I just hope people don't start bashing the multiplayer experience if it's buggy even though it's just a BETA.

You do realize the Beta is PS3 only, right? So pre-ordering the 360 version in hope for the code for the PS3 Beta is very unlikely.

Exactly. I know that the beta is PS3 only, but I've yet to see it stated that you have to pre-order the PS3 version to get the token from gamestop when you take in your pre-order receipt.

I'm just hoping I can still play the beta if that's the case.

They recently announced that GameStop will be participating in Beta...I already order mine like back before E3...

I called on Friday, one of the lady staff told me she received the email and told me just come to the store, they will print me the code with the recipe...

but when I went in today, one of the staff told me that they are not giving out the code till the beta start...

do anyone ordered from gamestop before they announced got the code? According to ubisoft news, (http://assassinscreed.us.ubi.com/brotherhood/news/11753.html) you can get the code from Gamestop from 9th August.

As people elsewhere are getting codes, does anyone know when Play.com will be releasing the codes? The UK news (http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/brotherhood/news/11723.html) says it could be a week before or on point of preorder, so which what will Play.com be doing?

Hey guys sorry if this is a little off topic but this is the only thing I could put this on cause I don't think it is thread worthy. Should i get this game for ps3 since online is free and some exclusive ps3 content. The problam is my bro has it in his room 24/7 and I barely get to play it. So should i get it for ps3 or xbox.

try kicking your brother off it, taking out of his room, then you can get it on ps3 and get the beta, YAY.

Anyways, slightly relieved that you have received a code either. I'll try and contact them to find more details, just need to find their email. I'd prefer not to phone them.

Exactly. I know that the beta is PS3 only, but I've yet to see it stated that you have to pre-order the PS3 version to get the token from gamestop when you take in your pre-order receipt.

I'm just hoping I can still play the beta if that's the case. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hello fellow assassins

Quick question: I'm here in North America and when i saw the tweet this morning from @UBIGabe about the multiplayer, i called my gamestop for the preorder code.. since the manager knows me personally, i got the code. I've tried once so far to validate said code..

but when i clicked validate, it sent me to the login page again. so I.. anturally logged back in and it.. sent me to the validation page-again..
Infinate loop anyone?

Is the token ordeal only for EU users?
How does the system work for North american users? Some answers would be great as I'm completely confused and don't want to miss my chance.

I prepaid for Brotherhood the day reservations opened at my local gamestop, which was months ago when the game was first confirmed.. all this waiting and if i miss it.. man its gunna suck.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Safety and peace.

Game took down the offer when they ran out of codes so you would imagine play would do the same but then again maybe their just trying to milk as much money out of it as they can. I will cancel my pre order if I don't get a code as will pretty much everyone else who doesn't get code.

Just a friendly word of advice for US residents who plan on going in to GameStop to get a beta voucher:

Call ahead. I went to the one by work on my lunch hour to preorder the limited edition. They did not receive the codes yet. Some stores apparently did, but not all. Save yourself a trip, be smart and call ahead unlike yours truly.

If you check the first post, it has the info you need...



You can either order online at play.com - or check your local Game store, see if they have any codes remaining.



The codes are limited in numbers, and Game online have already run out.


And just a reminder that only certain countries are part of the beta: United States, Canada, France, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Australia.

Safety and peace. Im in the same boat as this guy pretty much, only difference being that I pre-ordered it on FRIDAY and got my code.

Now, the receipt TELLS me to go to www.assassinscreed.com/ps3beta (http://www.assassinscreed.com/ps3beta) to "register my unique code". I go there, log in, and.. like Assassin_Cat, it sends me to the age verification screen, then to the main page. It was a seemingly endless loop, and it was very frustrating.

Eventually I got it to go to step 2, how, just by trying a completely unnecessary amount of times. They said that my code was valid, and that Id be emailed my code on Monday. It's tuesday now, and still, no code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think there's been a confusion (or it's just me) but on the assassin's creed website there is an option to enter the BETA code and I have received an E-Mail from Ubisoft telling me about that the BETA has been released and is available. I'm not sure if it's available and the codes have been posted to everyone. I also went on Youtube and typed in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Gameplay and it was there and it was recorded with a camera on a normal TV so it must have been player made and by someone who had already acquired the BETA. I've pre-ordered the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Codex Edition @ Play.com (UK ftw http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) and I still haven't got the code.

Its most likely just a demo or just people playing filmed at something like E3 or similar. Unless I saw which video you meant, I can't say for sure (there are many videos of people playing this game at E3.

OK. so I pre-ordered from GameStop, I have got a code. however every time I try to access the VIPbeta it asks me to login, then after I enter in my information it directs me to the Main Page. can anyone help or at least let me know I am not alone here, cause this is really frustrating.

If your in the US - you need to use the correct website for your region, which should be detailed from your retailer - www.assassinscreed.com/ps3beta (http://www.assassinscreed.com/ps3beta) << only for US customers.

Only certain retailers have the codes - so each country have a couple of stores doing it..

UK have Game and Play.com

US have Gamestop and EBGames
[for example]

People need to check the AC website for details in your region, since there are quite a few now, or check your local retailers.

BUT - I'm guessing if you have now changed it, when they send the codes out, they will see the correct country but I will ask.

Even if you managed to redeem the code, you will still need the Beta on PSN to download, and its only available in those listed countries.

Ubi's cutting it close with the new beta date. It's only 6 weeks prior to release. I guess they'd probably have enough time to make necessary tweaks before it goes gold. I'll keep the faith.

Depends on your retailers I think, some gave it right away and some might give it a week before the Beta starts (that's what I've been told)
I didn't receive mine yet (I ordered at Ubishop, if you did also, I think they give it a week before the Beta, but I'm not sure)

I ordered from UbiShop on the 12th and a few days later I checked my order status on Ubisoft's website and on the beta product it should say your code. It should be the serial number. I put this in on the beta page and my code was validated. I'm in UK by the way.
