Ubisoft has today announced that they will be having a Closed Beta for their upcoming 3rd-person action game For Honor. The Beta will be taking place from January 26-29 on current-gen consoles as well as on PC. Those battle-hardened warriors willing to pledge their sword can sign up to have a chance to participate 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. The rewards will transfer to the full game and only be available to Closed Beta participants.
In For Honor, 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. For Honor is set to release on February 14, 2017, for Playstation 4, Playstation Pro, Xbox One and PC.
