'Assassin's Creed III' (ALL) Not Getting Customary Multiplayer Beta

by Rainier on Aug. 6, 2012 @ 11:17 a.m. PDT

Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin's Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage, encouraging gamers to experience the War not written about in history books.

Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Players become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date. Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army.

In a recent interview Ubisoft Annecy Multiplayer Game Director Damien Kieken revealed that, unlike previous installments in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed III will not get a multiplayer beta:

“Yes, to be honest, it’s something we want to do every year because we get community feedback that helps us tune the game. It is also a good reward for the community that has followed us from the beginning. But doing a beta takes a lot of time; we’d need to polish a version, submit it to the platform holders and support it when it’s out. And all the time put into the beta doesn’t go into the final game.  Because we wanted to push so many things into the game, we took the hard decision to favor the final game content instead of doing a beta and we believe it will be favorable in the end.”

Gamers who pre-order Assassin’s Creed III at GameStop, Amazon.com or Best Buy will receive a Limited Edition collectible case featuring artwork created by award-winning comic book artist Alex Ross.
