Members of Ubisoft’s Uplay service are to be granted “privilege access” to the upcoming multiplayer for Far Cry 3, Ubisoft revealed earlier today.
In an interview with VideoGamer.com at the Ubisoft Digital Days 2012 event, the Uplay brand development manager Alexandra Andrieux announced their plans. We already knew about the plans to give beta access to North American consumers that pre-ordered Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, but past that it was unknown how anybody else would be able to get into the multiplayer beta.
There are programs for our Uplay members to have privilege access to the [Far Cry 3] beta when the game launches.
In the American territories… they have the ability to participate in the beta because we know that they are a Uplay member and we put them first.
It should be noted that once again they’re only mentioned the American territories, so it is unknown at this time if European Uplay users will also get access to the beta. As it looks though, it could be exclusive to North America at the moment.
Well, at least there’s news on the beta. It was scheduled to launch on Xbox 360 and PS3 over the summer, but now as the summer days draw to a close; we’re still not seeing anything of it. The delays for the beta are presumably because Far Cry 3 was pushed back until November.
