If you were hoping to give Ubisoft's For Honor a try ahead of its February 14th release date, you'll be glad to hear that the closed beta is just around the corner. Starting on January 26th and ending on January 29th you'll be able to play as all three factions in an all-out war for domination, with the winners being given a special reward at the very end. All of this warfare will be done across six different maps, and three game modes: Dominion 4v4, Brawl 2v2, and Duel 1v1.
For those of you that prefer to digest information through video form, here's the recently posted teaser trailer showcasing the above mentioned features. Have a look:
Up until now Ubisoft required players to sign up on their website for a chance at a beta key, but apparently all of that was a massive waste of time as they have just released a guaranteed way of getting yourself in there. By simply heading over to the SCARS interactive website and creating your favorite weapon you'll be given a closed beta code. While there I would also suggest checking out what the various factions and heroes have to offer, because I'm still not sure whether you're going to be able to change once the beta finally launches. Personally I've gone with the Wardens as they most resemble my Dark Souls characters, though I have a distinct feeling I won't be able to combat-roll my way to victory this time around!
If you would like to learn a little bit more about the various factions and the gameplay present in For Honor, you can either check out a bunch of recently posted videos, or head on over too the official website. Enjoy!
