The lights are on
Today Ubisoft announced its the closed beta for its upcoming medieval multiplayer brawler, For Honor, is starting on January 26.
The melee-centric game pits knights, vikings, and samurai against one another in fights to the death. For the beta, Ubisoft is throwing a special, limited time event called War of the Factions that runs through January 29. "War of the Factions will track all multiplayer activities across all platforms from all players during the closed beta, and will reward players for fighting for their factions and honor the winning faction with additional rewards," the press release reads. "In addition to the War of the Faction rewards, players who participate in the closed beta will also receive rewards. Both sets of rewards will be transferred to the full game."
If you want to volunteer your sword for this event, you can register for the closed beta draft here.
For Honor is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14.

I am definitely excited for this game. I saw a story trailer for the game that looked really good.
Take me to Valhalla!
Can't decide between viking or knight!!!!!!!
I'm looking forward to this game sooooo much, but I'm really afraid my PC won't run it.
Then again...what better excuse to buy a new PC than this!!
ohhhh ***. This is the one I've been waiting for. Can't wait for my twin axes to turn red! This game looks so damn fun!
Already registered. Had fun with the alpha so I hope to give this another go before release.
The beta is only a couple weeks before the game releases. Maybe it's mostly for the promotion
