The Closed Beta for the game, For Honor will be running this weekend, Jan 26 - Jan 29 and it so happens to be a long weekend right here in Singapore, because of the Chinese New Year Holidays! So definitely going to spend some time on the Beta!
Although For Honor has a story mode, this is going to be a very multiplayer-focused game...and it's good that Ubisoft is having a relatively large-scale Closed Beta to give a good test to their servers before the game's release on Feb 14.
Essentially, it's also going to be a good demo for gamers to have a feel of the game, if you are still on the fence about this.
The Closed Beta will include 9 out of the 12 playable classes, 6 maps, 3 game modes and the much-hyped War of the Factions; which will be a live event across platforms and regions, pitting the 3 factions against each other for world domination. Probably better explained in this video below.. haha..
Of course, there will be rewards that we can unlock that will carry on to the full game. While everyone who participates in the Beta will earn a reward, the winning Faction will unlock additional rewards! That pretty much means.. The War for Honor is starting!
Here's a quick look at the 3 Factions..
I have already made up my mind.. I will be going with the Vikings!
There's plenty of games where you play as Knights and even Samurais but I can't remember a single game that has you as a Viking so this is going to be something unique. Join me?
Beta registrations are still open at forhonorgame.com/war.
Do give it a try and according to GameAxis Singapore, those who got a Closed Beta code for For Honor, you will also get access to Ghost Recon Wildlands' Closed Beta. Looking forward to that too!
Whether you are with me or against me, add me up on PSN (Jengoboy) so that we can get battling over the weekend together. Do drop a short note along with your invite so I know what it's about.
See you on the battlefield!
