For Honor Open Beta Starts Next Week

For Honor Open Beta Starts Next Week

For Honor finished up its closed beta, and we were more than a little disappointed we missed a chance to try out the cross-cultural carnage. Today’s news helped to turn that frown upside down as an open beta was announced.

Running from February 9th – 12th, gamers will be able to choose between three variants of the Vikings, Samurai, and Knights to prove which warriors are the best. In addition to the Dominion (4vs4), Brawl (2vs2), and the argument solving Duel (1vs1) modes, a new Elimination mode will be available. This 4vs4 mode will be a best of five matches with no respawns.

As a promotion to continue the War of the Factions in the open beta, Ubisoft will also be pulling out the celebrity endorsements in a live event with Jason Mamoa (the future Aquaman), Lauren Cohan (Maggie from the Walking Dead), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thones), and Demetrious Johnson, a true UFC fighter who could probably take them all out without breaking a sweat.

For Honor has an interesting premise, but we are probably not alone in wanting a chance to give it a try. For every amazing multiplayer game like Overwatch, there are more missteps like Evolve. We can only hope developers have learned from these games, and we will have a chance to find out next Thursday.
