If you were hoping to try out Ubisoft's upcoming medieval murderfest For Honor ahead of its February 14 release date, you'll be glad to hear that there is a large closed beta planned for January. While the exact start date isn't known just yet, the signups are currently open, so head on over to the registration page and fill in the brief form.

But rather than simply offer a gameplay demo with this beta, Ubisoft is planning a massive War of the Factions event to answer, once and for all, the hardest question in all of history: Who would win in a three-way fight between a bunch of Vikings, Knights, and Samurai? The faction you choose doesn't really matter, but what does matter is that you ensure your side wins as many matches as possible given that each of the factions will receive a reward at the end depending on their ranking. What exactly these rewards will be, Ubisoft hasn't announced just yet, but I think its safe to assume its going to be something awesome given that this is their big marketing event, so don't let your side down!

And if you're currently wondering what in the blazing hells is For Honor anyway, here's a brief trailer to hopefully clue you in. It doesn't feature much in terms of gameplay, but it should get you in the right sort of mindset. Have a look:

Finally, if you would like to learn more about For Honor, or just check out a couple of other gameplay videos, head on over to official website. And to end all of this on a high note, here's a couple of rather fancy images:
