From September 15th to September 18th certain individuals will be invited to participate in the For Honor Closed Alpha test. The Closed Alpha will allow players from all over the world onto a bloody battlefield where all that matters is how good you are with a blade. So what can you expect if you are one of the lucky ones?
During this test, players will get their chance to play skilled and deadly elite warriors from the Knight, Viking and Samurai factions. The Closed Alpha will feature four previously showcased Heroes including the Kensei, Orochi, Warden and Raider, plus two brand-new warriors, Conqueror and Berserker. Each Hero is equipped with a unique set of skills, weapons, armour and fighting styles, as well as a wide library of customisation options. Players will also get a first look at the progression system as they unlock new abilities, new weapons and armour, as well as new visual customisation following their fights on the battlefield.
Out of the five final game multiplayer modes, three will be available for the Closed Alpha, Duel (a 1v1 mode), Brawl (a 2v2 mode) and Dominion (a 4v4 mode). Each of the modes will come with different maps allowing players to develop their skills not only with the sword but also tactically by using the environment around them.
Email invites have already been sent to selected Closed Alpha members as some of the TiX team have received theirs and are prepped and ready to go, but for those still wanting a chance to get involved you can sign up here.
For Honor is due for release on Xbox One and Windows PC on February 14th, 2017, but in the meantime check out the 6 playable characters in the up and coming Closed Alpha in action.
