First Medal of Honor , and now this. The PlayStation 3 has been getting a lot of beta love lately.

Today, Ubisoft has announced that a multiplayer beta for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be available in September, and it'll be exclusive to Sony's console. It'll be the first chance most gamers have to sample the new AC entry and of course, the first chance to check out the fresh new multiplayer mode. If you want in, simply pre-order the game from certain retailers (we imagine GameStop is among them), and prepare to utilize a combination of stealth, strength, and strategy to overcome your assassin opponents. Set to release on November 16 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (three days later for Europe), Brotherhood is the latest installment in the critically acclaimed franchise, the first to offer multiplayer, and a direct sequel to last year's award-winning Assassin's Creed II . It will also be Ezio's final adventure, as Ubisoft has revealed that ACIII will boast a new hero and a new time period; they wish to keep the series fresh in terms of locale, characters, and storyline, and we certainly appreciate that effort.

As you know, we're big fans of this franchise. We're just hoping they don't get too action-y and multiplayer-y with the new title…
