Sharpen your swords, For Honor goes into open beta

News Xbox One

Ubisoft’s latest closed beta of For Honor has just finished and now they are looking to open the battlefield to all warriors willing to spill the blood of their enemies in the name of beta testing.

From February 9-12 anyone can download the beta and swear allegiance to a faction – that’s either the Knights, Samurai or Vikings. The last test before the game release on February 14 will include the new Elimination mode, Dominion, Brawl and Duel.

The beta will also give warriors a head start on the first War of the Factions, which will continue when the game launches two days after the beta finishes.

If you fancy a taste of what For Honor is about, then check out Twitch from February 7, 2pm PST and watch a squad of celebrity warriors take on the new Elimination mode.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
