For Honor – Closed Beta Coming January 26-29

It’s time to sharpen your blades and ready your shields because the For Honor Closed Beta is almost here. From January 26 – 29, select players on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will join the fray as Knights, Vikings, and Samurai, and experience the brutal melee combat of For Honor. For a chance to participate in the closed beta, you must be signed up at forhonorgame.com/war.

During the Closed Beta, players can also dive into War of the Factions and get a taste of the overarching conflict between the three warring groups. War of the Factions will track every match across all platforms during the Closed Beta, and players will be rewarded for fighting for their factions (with extra spoils going to the victorious faction). Additional rewards will also be given to those that participate in the Closed Beta. Both sets of rewards will transfer over to the full game at launch.

For Honor is set to release on February 14 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For more on the game’s unique combat system and the setting for the single-player and co-op campaign, check out UbiBlog’s coverage below:

The Art of Battle, For Honor’s innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you fight for land, glory, and honor. As a skilled warrior on an intense, believable battleground, you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way.
