Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer Beta Is A GameStop ExclusiveS

Want to get into the North American Assassin's Creed Brotherhood PlayStation 3 pre-launch multiplayer beta test this September? Then you're going to have to preorder the game through GameStop.

Ubisoft and GameStop have teamed up to provide players who reserve Brotherhood through the retailer exclusive access to the pre-launch multiplayer beta test for the game, set to launch on September 13, two months before the game's November 16 launch. Beta players will help stress the servers while exploring the brand-new Assassin's Creed multiplayer gameplay.

A limited number of beta tokens will be distributed by GameStop on a first-come, first-served basis starting on August 9. Players who have already preordered the game can bring in their receipts to score a token.

If you thought retailer exclusive preorder items were bad, how do you feel about a retailer exclusive online beta?
