The closed beta of For Honor will be starting in January 2017. Sign up here for a chance to take part in the beta or align yourself with a faction for Faction Wars.
The beta will feature 12 heroes across the three factions and three new heroes were recently revealed: the Peacekeeper (Assassin) who fights with a dagger and short sword; Shugoki (Heavy) who wield large sticks and possess more endurance at the cost of agility; and Warlord (Heavy) who wields a shield and sword.
Taking part in the beta will earn you a badge for your faction and the winning faction gets an additional prize. As for Faction War, it’s a competitive “persistent cross-platform conflict” that will be taking place every 10 weeks. Align yourself to a faction, gain War Assets based on performance in match and go about conquering or defending territories. Based on your faction rank, you’ll receive rewards with the season ending and beginning after a short period.
For Honor is out on February 14th 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
