Screw the Users, I Beta Fight For Honor

With less than a month until its Valentine’s Day release, For Honor is gearing up for its next round of Beta testing. Capping off the month over the 26th-29th weekend with a closed session that offers extra incentives. All gameplay across all platforms will be tracked, with the single faction which generates the most success being granted extra, in game items in the full release.

No clear indication on what said items will be, presumable primarily cosmetic in nature, but there should be further rewards interspersed throughout the War of the Factions Beta period for, well, fighting for your faction. Anyone else get the feeling this is gearing up for potential, future Esports shenanigans?

Vikings FTW bitches!

Official Press Release

LONDON, UK — January 10th 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that the For Honor™ Closed Beta will be available from January 26th–29th 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

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.

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 utilise 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 14th.
