Ubisoft’s For Honor releases this year, with a release date of February 14th carved out in blood. Before that however, a closed beta will take place which you can sign up for. A new cinematic trailer also released, asking that you prove you have honor before trying to follow the thin red line.
In For Honor, you can play the game alone or in co-op with a friend, as you take command of one of three legendary warrior factions – The noble Knights of the Iron Legion, the deadly Samurai of the Dawn Empire, and ferocious Vikings of the Warborn clans. Storm castles, defeat invading armies, and win epic duels as you battle for the survival of your people.
A closed beta will take place between January 26th and the 29th. It may or may not get extended, but if you want a chance to take part, you can sign up for it here. You can choose which platform you want to take part in the beta on, as well as the faction you are most interested in. If you’re unsure, you can say so, and you will receive a random faction if you’re lucky enough to gain entry.
When released, For Honor will feature various multiplayer modes as well as a full co-op campaign to enjoy. These modes include:
- Dominion: Dominion is a four-versus-four multiplayer mode in which players must capture and hold multiple zones in a battlefield. Points are earned through occupying combat zones. When one team earns enough points, they must eliminate the players from the other team and win the match.
- Brawl: In this two-versus-two multiplayer mode, a team must eliminate the entire opponent team completely in order to win.
- Duel: Duel is a one-versus-one multiplayer mode in which a player must successfully kill its opponent in order to win.
- Skirmish: Skirmish is a four-versus-four multiplayer mode in which players gain points while killing enemies. The team that scores the most within the time limit will win the match.
- Elimination: A team of players must eliminate the entire team of opponent players in this four-versus-four multiplayer mode. The team that still has remaining warriors will automatically win the match.
