The closed beta for the much hyped medieval multiplayer fighting game For Honor [official site] has a date, and that date is only just over two weeks away.
Running from January 26 through January 29, the game’s closed beta will feature the three factions – Knights, Vikings and Samurai (which you’ll need to choose between before starting to play), a bunch of rewards and a lot of stabbing, clashing and beating. Ubisoft has also put together a special event throughout the four days called “War of the Factions”, which will give you “a taste of the overarching conflict between the three warring groups” – essentially a teaser for the massive cross-platform faction wars that the full game will hold.
All matches will be tracked during War of the Factions, for every platform, and players will get rewards for contributing to their faction’s efforts. Players in the triumphant faction will also receive bonus loot, and players that participate in the closed beta will receive even more rewards. That’s a lot of stuff! If you’re wondering whether all your hard work will end up being for nothing, though, don’t worry, because all of the rewards will carry over to the full game when it’s released on the 14th of February.
