Assassin's Creed 3 PS3-exclusive content is an hour long

Multiplayer beta plans off the table.

We've known for a while that owners of Assassin's Creed 3 on PlayStation 3 will receive exclusive content. Now, box art and trailers for the game have confirmed the content will weigh in at an hour long.

Ubisoft has yet to confirm exactly what the extra gameplay will entail. The company previously announced it would comprise four missions, and arrive as day-one DLC.

It's not the first time that Ubisoft has showered PS3 fans with more gameplay. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood included the Copernicus Conspiracy mission on PS3, which Xbox 360 and PC players missed out on.

In other Assassin's Creed 3 news, Ubisoft has announced there will be no multiplayer beta for the game. The online portions of Brotherhood and Revelations were previously offered to select fans to try. But for Assassin's Creed 3, development time will instead be spent tweaking the final product.

"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," multiplayer game director Damien Kieken told Xboxgamezone. "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.
