Ubisoft have finally revealed that For Honors next Closed Beta will take place from January 26th to 29th on all platforms. Over the four days, players will get the opportunity to experience new multiplayer content, new maps and new playable Heroes.
In the Closed Beta, players will be able to choose between nine of the twelve different Heroes from the three For Honor Factions, three of the five intense multiplayer modes, all fought over six tactical environments. So who will be your warrior of choice, the Bold Knights, the brutal Vikings or the enigmatic Samurai? If that’s not enough Closed Beta players will also have the chance to try out Faction Wars. Faction Wars is the global, persistent and cross-platform event that brings to life the ongoing war between For Honor’s three factions, the Knights, the Vikings and the Samurai.
In addition, Ubisoft has released SCARS, a new digital experience where every scar of every weapon tells the story of the intense and bloody combat fought against great warriors. Warden, Kensei and Raider warriors are brought face-to-face in 12 unique and exclusively-realised videos and all participants of the site are invited to customise the weapon that best represents their warrior souls. On completion of this experience participants will then be rewarded with a Closed Beta Code.
So what are you waiting for, access the new SCARS experience and earn yourself a place on the Closed Beta. Alternatively for further information about For Honor, check out the Official Website or if you want to sign up for the Beta then follow the link here.

Ubisoft’s highly anticipated return to the Rainbow Six IP has hit a 7 week snag as, following extensive internal play-testing and closed alpha testing, Ubisoft Montreal have taken the decision to postpone the release of the title until December 1st 2015.
An update from the development team today confirmed that although the game release has been delayed, they have decided to go ahead with the September 24th date for the closed beta.
The development team update stated
The additional time will allow us to further test things like infrastructure and matchmaking. That extra testing and added polish will make for a higher-quality experience at launch.
We understand that many of you are excited to get your hands on the final game, but as gamers ourselves we know that quality comes first and we are committed to delivering the best game possible.
I for one am a little disappointed I wont be getting my hands on the full game on the 13th of October, but on the other hand if they need extra time to ensure the quality of the game I am happy they are being up front about their passion and commitment to deliver a top quality game.
This transparency from Ubisoft has been a welcome change following the public outcry over the release of Assassins Creed last year, and long may it continue.
Mark the date down, write it on your calendars, add it your mobiles and make sure you get your pre-order money ready. Ubisoft today announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be available on October 13th 2015 for Xbox One.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is inspired by real world counter-terrorist organisations, and puts players in the middle of lethal close-quarters confrontations. For the first time in a Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy’s position.
The following editions of the game will be released here in the UK and the rest of the Europe. The USA editions will be announced at a later date.
The Art of Siege Edition includes the full game, a collector’s box, a Gold Skins Pack for all in-game weapons and an exclusive 120 page Tactical Guide. This guide was created with the development team and core gamers’ advice.
The Gold Edition will include the Standard Edition and Season Pass.
The Tactical Elite Edition, a very limited edition available exclusively on the Uplay Shop will include both Art of Siege Edition and Season Pass.
And of course, as goes with most big releases now-a-days, get your pre-order in now for a guaranteed Closed Beta code later in the year. Those pre-ordering the physical version of the game at the Uplay Shop will receive not only their guaranteed Closed Beta access, but also an exclusive numbered steel book when the game is released.
