Ubisoft's unique action combat title should be ready to go by Valentine's Day… but for those eager to step onto a brutal battlefield a little early, there is a For Honor closed beta test scheduled for January 26th-29th, 2017. The closed alpha was apparently super successful and one of Ubisoft's biggest yet, so we assume the beta will be pretty polished at this point.
Those who are interested can register right now at http://forhonorgame.com/war. Players who make it into the beta can partake in a limited-time factions event and can earn rewards that transfer over to the full version.
There's also a new closed beta date announcement trailer as seen below.
For Honor Cinematic Trailer: Closed Beta Date Announcement – The Thin Red Path:
Today, Ubisoft announced that the For Honor Closed Beta will be available from January 26–29, 2017 on current-gen consoles and PC. Those still waiting to pledge their sword can sign up to have a chance to participate in the closed beta at forhonorgame.com/war.
Coinciding with the closed beta, Ubisoft is launching War of the Factions, a limited-time event which will help answer the question: When the mighty Vikings, deadly Samurai and bold Knights finally collide on the battlefield, who will reign supreme? War of the Factions will track all multiplayer activities across all platforms from all players during the closed beta, and will reward players for fighting for their factions and honor the winning faction with additional rewards. In addition to the War of the Faction rewards, players who participate in the closed beta will also receive rewards. Both sets of rewards will be transferred to the full game.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios,* For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the enigmatic Samurai – fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. The game’s innovative combat system puts players in total control of their warriors, allowing them to utilize the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way. For Honor will be available on February 14.
