Ubisoft announced an open beta for it’s medieval fighting game For Honor. Following last month’s closed beta, those who missed out on it will be able to try the game from February 9th to February 12th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
This beta will include the new Elimination mode, a best of five rounds four-versus-four match with no respawns. Elimination joins three additional modes playable in the open beta including Dominion, Brawl and Duel, and nine playable Heroes. At launch, For Honor will feature twelve playable Heroes and five different multiplayer modes.
The War of the Factions will continue into the open beta, giving more players a chance to fight for one of the three Factions – Knights, Samurai and Vikings. Following the closed beta, the Vikings led the War of the Factions, which pulled data from the performance of players across all three platforms.
Along with several celebrities and top Twitch streamers, Ubisoft will be streaming the new Elimination mode on February 7th, at 10:00 p.m. UK time.
Although the Vikings are currently in the lead after the closed beta, Samurai and Knight players have the chance to lead their Faction to victory during the open beta and earn rewards when For Honor launches on February 14th, 2017. I’ve had the chance to give the Closed beta a shot. While I enjoyed the tutorial against the A.I., one-on-one matches will most likely end up as button mashers instead of beautifully choreographed battles.
