Beta sounds very similar to the multiplayer demo they had at eurogamer 2011.
Looked very nice and played well then, just suffered from the usual 3rd person movement speeds/aiming speeds which where sluggish.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this too based on its pedigree but am a little worried about how many times this game appears to have gone back to the drawing board over the years.

I hope there remains a solid tactical shooter and not another on the rails COD clone at the end of the day.

I thought the beta was also available through pre orders but not sure if anyone has it there yet.

Yeah I did see mention of this on another site, but there was no info as to which suppliers would be dishing out beta codes

Nice little write up here about the multiplayer side: IGN Preview

Sounds like it could be very good, although not sure I like the potential of invisible snipers camping in trees Also with the data hack feature they have included, it may mean that playing with randoms would be out of the question as well, all it would take is one fool to go charging in and getting hacked to expose the entire teams positions. I would hope that for all these features they have included suitable counter-measures

I'm surprised that they still haven't mentioned anything about the beta keys for those who have pre-ordered

Edit: Just took a look at the ubi support site and the only mention of pre-order keys on there is if you ordered through Gamestop, what's the betting that's only for the US customers as well. So not only would US gamestop shoppers be getting a free upgrade to the signature edition, but also beta access included with their order.

Does sound positive with the emphasis on objectives. Just hope they don't fall into the BF3 trap and have unlocks linked to kills though.

Preordered with GameStop Uk after seeing it on their twitter. No mention of it on the site but got the code through a day later - not redeemed it yet although I understand it's not live anyway yet.

As usual, can cancel the preorder I guess once you get the code

I think the objective thing sounds great. Ghost Recon should be about objectives IMO otherwise it's a campers stalemate.

A heads up for anyone who has a copy of Splinter Cell: Conviction, the beta is now available to pre-load through the main menu of SC:C. The beta is then accessible through the main Xbox dash so you don't need to have the game disc in to play the beta, so it would appear that you could rent/borrow a copy to get beta access

If you drop to dashboard you ought to be able to select 'Download Again' from your history.

Exactly what I did, was surprised that it only took about 5mins, was expecting it to be a long one

Got a code for the beta if anyone wants it as too much on my gaming plate to bother with at the moment!

EDIT - Apparently all keys are gone now That was quick!


Good news everyone!

So do you fancy partaking in the multiplayer beta and don't have Splinter Cell Conviction anymore or a code ?

Easy days.

Go to the link below:

http://www.gamereactor.dk/nyheder/10...econ%3A+FS+nu/

Now you'll need to create an account and it's super easy. At the top right you'll see an obvious place to login, just beneath the boxes you can see the words 'Bliv Medlem' to register. Click here and on the next screen you'll see two sections.

In the top section all you need to fill in is 'Fødselsdato:' this is your date of birth. In the bottom section it goes - email address, username, password, retype password.

After you do this and click the 'Bliv Medlem Nu!' button you should be logged in and can click on the PS3/360 links. Hope that helps for anyone interested and hopefully there will be some keys left!
