For those who subscribe to PlayStation Plus or who have a registered Uplay account with Ubisoft, the Assassin's Creed: Revelations beta is now on PS3.

The multiplayer beta begins officially tomorrow, September 3rd, but the client is downloadable now from the PlayStation Store. It will run until September 11th.


There are nine characters to choose from in the beta including the Deacon and the Bombardier, which you'll get to play as throughout three maps in four modes; Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch and Artefact Assault.

Here are some details of the multiplayer beta:

Characters
The Sentinel – A Wallachian noble by birth and a former Assassin, Vali cel Tradat seeks satisfaction through vengeance. Favored weapon: Long Katar

The Vanguard – Oksana Razin worked for the Templars as a spy before joining their Order, exchanging loyalty for wealth. Favored weapon: Small Axe

The Guardian – The estranged cousin of a Sultan, Odai Dunqas embraces the Templar ideology of seeking peace through order and stability. Favored weapon: Lance

The Vizier – Damat Ali Pasha joined the Templars in hopes of bringing order and glory to a world ruled by chaos. Favored weapon: Sword

The Thespian – The Templars often rely on Lysistrata’s seductive charisma to influence Ottoman officials and visiting monarchs. Favorite weapon: Dagger

The Deacon – Cyril of Rhodes uses his position in the Church to destroy it from within and further Templar dominance. Favored weapon: Long Sword

The Bombardier – Kadir is a strong asset to the Templars. He trades weapons and information for money and power. Favored weapon: Mace

The Trickster – A canny thief, the fortune-teller Mirela Djuric is the Templars’ link to a vast underworld of criminal activity. Favored weapon: Dagger

The Champion – The professional fighter Georgios Kostas has earned the Templars’ esteem and the right to fight for the red cross. Favored weapon: Small Axe

Maps
Knight’s Hospital
Antioch
Constantinople


Modes
Wanted – Your objective is to kill your designated TARGETS and avoid being killed by your PURSUERS. The higher you rank, the more PURSUERS will hunt you. The highest score wins. Quality kills will boost your score through bonuses earned.
• Free for all – 4-8 players
• Session – 1 round of 10 minutes


Manhunt – Each team takes turns pursuing the other team. Work together to kill your targets or hide with your allies and survive. Performing quality kills and hiding with your allies will boost your score.
• Team – 4-8 players, 2 teams
• Session – 2 rounds of 5 minutes


Deathmatch (NEW) – Find and kill assigned TARGETS and avoid being killed by your PURSUERS. Templars compete in a small area without triggering CHASES and your COMPASS has been deactivated. In this mode, only one of each character type walks the map, so TARGETS are easy to spot. Quality kills will boost your score through earned bonuses.
•Free for all – 4-8 players
•Session – 1 round of 10 minutes


Artefact Assault (NEW) – Your objective is to score by stealing the enemy’s artefact from their base and carrying it back to yours. When you’re in your territory, you are a PURSUER and can kill opponents, but once you move into enemy territory, you become a TARGET and can be killed. The team with the highest score wins.
• Team – 4-8 players, 2 teams
• Session – 1 round of 10 minutes


Abilities
Tripwire Bomb (NEW) – Once armed, the Tripwire Bomb explodes when a TARGET or a PURSUER steps on it.

Closure (NEW) – Trigger all chase-breakers around you. Perfect for trapping PURSUERS or preventing the escape of a TARGET.

Disguise – Temporarily change your appearance to surprise your opponent. Particularly effective in the new Deathmatch mode!

Fire Crackers – Drop Firecrackers on the ground to blind opponents and scare the crowd. Pay attention to crowd behavior and your TARGET will be revealed!

Throwing Knives – Use Throwing Knives to injure your opponents, slowing them down or making them fall when climbing.

Smoke Bomb – Throw a Smoke Bomb to confuse the crowd and rival Templars. An old stand-by for veteran Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood players.

Poison – Dispense a stealthy dose of Poison that will slowly kill your TARGET. A bit underhanded, perhaps, but no less effective.

Morph – Transform characters from the crowd into your duplicates, hiding you from PURSUERS. Ideal for the new Deathmatch mode where remaining unseen is difficult!
