For Honor victorious Samurai screenshot

If you're itching for a bit of medieval mayhem, you're in luck as the For Honor Open "Beta" has now begun. The reason I'm using quotation marks around beta is for the simple fact that we're currently less than a week from release, so whatever issues Ubisoft does manage to discover during this beta test are most likely not going to be fixed by February 14th. That said, this is a great way to demo For Honor without actually putting any of your money down, so make sure to pick your favorite faction and head on over to Steam.

And for those among you that know very little about For Honor, allow me to show you the recently posted 360° trailer. It won't really demonstrate what the gameplay is like, but it should give you a pretty damn good idea. Anyway, here's the video:

If you're interested in my opinion on For Honor you can find my beta review by heading over here. Long story short, For Honor features a great combat system that is unfortunately being held back by generic game modes and a lack of dedicated servers. If you're a fan of fighting games odds are you'll have a blast with it, but for the rest of us I'm not sure if For Honor is going to have much of a lasting appeal. It is well worth trying out for free though, so make sure to jump into the beta and show those Vikings and Samurai who's boss... well, unless you plan to play as the lesser factions anyway! :)
