Sorry, but what does the BETA mean?

Does that mean it'll be only for online?

So no, offline multiplayer?

no it means that they are going to release a demo of the online. like uncharted 2 and MAG did

Ezioassassin: No, it means that we will be able to try the online out before it's released.

It was fairly obvious they were going to do BETA testing at some point, theres no way they could release the game without it!


Last year's title, Assassin's Creed II, has shipped nearly nine million units to date, according to Ubisoft.

In terms of sales figures I have no idea if that is good or bad... anyone?

let's just hope the beta comes out for the pc as well and that we won't have to wait another 6 months to get the game

BETA =/= demo

BETA is the last stage of testing. It's when all the features are in place and the tests' main focus is tracking down bugs.

That's great. I'm sure every dev wishes their games the same. AC1 sold 8 million (it apparently has the record for highest selling new franchise) so if AC2 has already out sold that in six months time I'd say it did great for a sequel.

With that said looking forward to the beta!

I hope all you people realise a beta is NOT a demo and will have problems and could lead to a experience were the game keeps failing due to bugs, as the game is not finished.

You'll find that out closer to the time, everyone just needs to wait patiently and try not to get over excited(I.E. ask to many stupid questions) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I do like the idea of an open Beta - not because it's a preview of the finished product but because, having complained so much about perennial bugs in AC2, we can actually ron out a few in ACB.

That's good to hear. It's just speculation but I had a feeling that releasing this game without a BETA would have been a total flop. I still have a bad feeling about it, but at least I'll get to preview it before hand to decide if it's going to be worth it.
