It’s sad news for Assassin’s Creed fans, such as myself, that
I bring you this news. Even after the very successful Assassin’s Creed:
Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed: revelation multiplayer Beta, Ubisoft’s Damien
Kieken announced in a recent interview that he won’t be releasing a testing
phase to the public for Assassin’s Creed III.
Kieken told Xboxgamezone that "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."
Nevertheless, fans will be drooling all over the newest
multiplayer addition in the game, including a third skill slot for ranged abilities
and the all-new Wolpack cooperative mode in the game. Make sure to tune in next
week as we try the game once again live from Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.
