Closed Beta And New Heroes Coming To For Honor

December 16, 2016

Ubisoft have announced that For Honor, the upcoming action game that we tried out at E3 2016, will receive a closed beta in January ahead of its launch in February 2017. The beta will give you the opportunity to play in some brand new multiplayer experiences as vikings, knights and samurai across three different lands – Ashfeld, Valkenheim and Myre. Coinciding with the closed beta, Ubisoft will also launch a new pre-launch event called War of the Factions. War of the Factions will track all multiplayer activity across all platforms in the closed beta launching January 2017. Rewards will be given to warriors participating in the beta as well as the winning faction.

Along with the announcement of the closed beta, Ubisoft also released a brand new campaign trailer that gives some details on why these heroes have gone to war with each other. It details the motivations of the three factions, including the Knights of the Iron Legion, the Warborn Viking clans and the Samurai of the Dawn Empire.

Ubisoft have also revealed three new Heroes, one for each faction, from the 12 that will be in the full game, including two new heavy heroes and an assassin hero. The full details of these heroes, along with trailers for each can be found below.

For Honor will release on February 14th, 2017 for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

· Shugoki: Once the guardians of the Samurai, they have become as family. Massive and fierce, their weapon of choice is the kanabo, a huge stick that they only can wield efficiently. The Shugoki might not have the same agility as the other Samurai, but their rock-like resistance and demon-like strength make them an unavoidable force on the battlefield.

· Warlord: Warlord is a name from an ancient Viking tradition, a name that is earned by only the true leaders in combat, those who are ready to spend their whole life servicing all who need it. Warlords’ shields are as versatile as they are strong and their sword, while simple in design, is sharp and deadly.

· Peacekeeper: Selected from the desperate, the humbled or the devoted, they are sworn to secrecy by unbreakable oaths. Quick and lethal, they fight with a short sword in one hand and a dagger in the other. Peacekeepers are the deadliest duelists of all Assassins, capable of winning a fight before their enemy even knows they are here.[/toggle_box]
