For Honor closed beta begins on January 26

After previously stating that the closed beta for its upcoming title For Honor would begin sometime in January, 2017, Ubisoft has made good on its promise by announcing a more specific start date: January 26.

According to a press release from Ubisoft, the For Honor closed beta will begin on January 26 and will last until January 29, giving beta participants several days to try out the game and help test its stability. The closed beta will also mark the start of For Honor’s War of the Factions meta game and, according to Ubisoft, those who participate in both the beta and War of the Factions will receive rewards which will be usable in For Honor’s full release:

“Coinciding with the closed beta, Ubisoft is launching War of the Factions, a limited-time event which will help answer the question: When the mighty Vikings, deadly Samurai and bold Knights finally collide on the battlefield, who will reign supreme? War of the Factions will track all multiplayer activities across all platforms from all players during the closed beta, and will reward players for fighting for their factions and honor the winning faction with additional rewards. In addition to the War of the Faction rewards, players who participate in the closed beta will also receive rewards. Both sets of rewards will be transferred to the full game.”

The For Honor closed beta will be playable on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. You can register for a chance to participate in the beta here.
