For Honor is ‘ringing in the New Year’ with a closed beta

News Xbox One

For Honor is kicking 2017 off with a closed beta that looks to answer the question who would reign supreme if Vikings, Samurai and Knights clashed on the battlefield. Dubbed “War of Factions”, this limited time event will track all activity during the beta and reward participating warriors and the winning faction.

Once the game launches in February, Faction War will become a regular cross-platform conflict – cross-platform? – with each season lasting 10 weeks, resuming once awards are dished out and an off-season period has passed.

Sign up now for a taste of what For Honor offers – which faction will you be siding with?
