For Honor promises to put players back on the battlefield as Ubisoft release details of the Xbox One, PS4 and PC closed alpha.
Running from September 15th-18th 2016, the closed alpha for For Honor will allow players from around the world to join a cruel, bloody battlefield as they get a measure of their skills. If you need to get sign up, then get involved at http://www.forhonorgame.com.
The closed alpha will test a work-in-progress portion of the multiplayer content with a limited number of players in order to generate feedback and assess for stability. Three of the five multiplayer modes will be available with a chance to check out Duel (a 1v1 mode), Brawl (a 2v2 mode) and Dominion (a 4v4 mode). Each mode will come with different maps allowing fans to develop their tactical skills by using the environments to their advantage.
If you do manage to get selected, then you will get the chance to embody 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 will come well equipped, with a unique set of skills, weapons, armour and fighting styles available.
You will also get a first look at the progression system as new abilities, new weapons and armour are unlocked, as well as new visual customisation possibilities following the fight on the battlefield. You can check out more in the videos below.
For Honor will arrive in full on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come February 14th, 2017.
