For Honor Open Beta Weekend
For Honor, the anticipated and highly brutal new release from Ubisoft, is almost available for the masses. As the release date for their action-arena fighting game approaches, Ubisoft is putting its servers to the test one last time.
An open beta will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC from February 9 through February 12 from 9AM to 5PM EST.
Many have already played the game through previous closed betas. The upcoming weekend will provide an opportunity for any player to experience the new hack and slash title. The beta will consist of four game modes and nine playable heroes, just three shy of the twelve heroes confirmed at launch.
Additionally, for those eager to jump right in and get the most out of the final test trial, For Honor is currently available for pre-download. This will allow players to play when beta servers go live.
The pre-download for PC can be found on the For Honor site or through Steam. Console players can find the beta client via their own platform's app store. It should be noted that if you were involved in the previous closed beta tests, and still have the beta client, a simple patch update should allow you to jump into the action at kick-off.
For Honor is gaining popularity for both it's solo and multiplayer content. Campaign modes have already been introduced for all three factions; vikings, samurai, and knights. Online play offers game modes ranging from one-on-one duels to the 4v4 Dominion mode.
For Honor is slated for release on February 14, with Standard, Deluxe, Gold, and Collector's editions available for purchase.
