For Honor beta begins Jan. 26
Try a slice of the game before February
For Honor has received a new cinematic trailer along with a closed beta date of January 26 – 29.

New to the beta release is the War of the Factions mode, serving as the game’s ranked matches that has players enlist and fight for the supremacy of one of the game’s three factions: Knights, Vikings, and Samurai.

Players will receive equipment rewards for supporting their faction that will carry into the full game at launch, along with bonus rewards for simply participating in the beta process.

Although the game is not quite shaping up to its original ambition, the core multiplayer combat still holds promise, and the beta is a good opportunity for uncertain players to determine the game’s worth for themselves.

Those interested can register now for a chance to try out For Honor before its release on February 14, 2017.
