Hey Guys,

I was just wondering, will the BETA be available straight on PSN (like a DLC sort of thing) or do we have to do some sort of sign up to be able to get it?

Also with the Limited Edition, any word of it being available here in Australia?

For Beta it looks like you have to Pre-order the game as of yet

Yes the limited edition will be available in Australia

From what I've heard and read on play.com (http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStation3/4-/13461457/Assassin-Creed-Brotherhood/Product.html), you have to pre-order the (PS3) game to receive a code for the Beta. This code is emailed to you 2 days before the Beta opens. I'd guess that we input the code into the PS Store, which then may take you to the DLC (I've never used any codes in PS Store, so I don't know exactly what will happen).

Play.com is the only site that even mentions the beta (that delivers to the UK) that I have found so far.

i really hope they don't make the preorder the way into the beta because last preorder bonus i saw they made it that if u used the bonus u could not cancel the preorder. because i am pretty sure i want ac:b for xbox because i like the controller and my xbox friends. unless the ps3 " exclusive" mission are like 3 hours of content or something like that.

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

how do i get it on my ps3 after i have done all that

Mr_Shade

As to what stores - depends on your region - if you check the www.assassinscreed.com (http://www.assassinscreed.com) website - and check the pre-order teaser, that will show you..

For example in the UK Game and Play.com are giving the codes out, as seen here: http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.c...hood/teaserpreorder/ (http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/brotherhood/teaserpreorder/)

Other retailers in your region MAY offer it, but you need to check with their website or instore.


As to how you get the beta, the same as with any download code on the PS3 - you goto the Playstation Network Store, after signing into your PSN account, and select the 'redeem code' option at the top of the screen.. enter the code you got from Ubi, and away you go http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm not sure but it probably depends on your retailer.

Hey i was just wondering if there is any non-PAL region links i can check out. And for that matter all of the ways to receive the beta code as a preorder are from European retailers. And what worries me more is that the Gamestop Bonus is the Harlequin and the Bestbuy Bonus is the officer so I don't know if it's possible for us in North America to receive a beta key... If you could confirm whether or not I could even get a key that'd be great. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
