Ubisoft’s upcoming game, For Honor, will be getting a closed beta test sometime in January of next year. You can sign up for the beta here.
To help add even more excitement for those who get into the beta, Ubisoft is also holding a contest of sorts called “War of the Factions”, according to the official Ubisoft blog. Each player in the beta will be entered into War of the Factions automatically, and will choose to pledge their allegiance to either the Vikings, the Knights, or the Samurai, which are the three playable factions in the game. After choosing you may still play as any faction, but every game you win will count towards the faction you chose. At the end of the beta, players in the winning faction will earn extra in game rewards (on top the rewards that every closed beta player will get).
For Honor is a game that is focused on melee combat, with each faction and character class using different weapons and fighting styles. In Ubisoft’s blog post, they also showed a new trailer for The Warlord, which is a class in the Viking faction. You can check out the trailer below.
For Honor is scheduled to release on February 14, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
