Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will be having a PS3 only beta that begins on September 13 and the only way to get into the beta is by pre-ordering the game at the place everyone loves to hate, Gamestop. Gamestop is known for having pre-order exclusives that suck, but this one might actually be worth the $5 asking fee.
Of course beta codes will find their way floating around the internet somehow, so keep your eyes and ears open for giveaways and such. Read the press release below for more information on the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood beta.
