'For Honor' (ALL) Goes Gold, Closed Beta Details, Twitch Contest - Trailer

For Honor is a fast-paced, competitive experience mixing skill, strategy, and team play with visceral melee combat.

Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield fighting for guts, glory, and survival in For Honor, a new melee action game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios.

Enter the chaos of a raging war as a knight, Viking, or samurai, three of the greatest warrior legacies. For Honor is a fast-paced and immersive experience, mixing skill with visceral, never-before-seen melee combat.

The Art of Battle, the game's innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way on an intense, believable battleground.

For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer. Enjoy the full experience with friends online, in split-screen two-player co-op, or solo against AI.

For Honor has also officially gone gold, and the upcoming closed beta will allow developers to take community feedback and balance content before launch.

The For Honor Closed Beta will be available from January 26–29, 2017 on current-gen consoles and PC. Over four days, players will get the opportunity to experience new multiplayer content, new maps and new playable Heroes.

During the Closed Beta, players will be able to discover what kind of warriors they are by choosing between nine of the 12 different Heroes from the three For Honor Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the enigmatic Samurai. Each Hero is unique with its own playstyle, set of armour, weapons, skills and progression. Players will confront each other in three of the five fast-paced and intense multiplayer modes of For Honor: Dominion 4v4, Brawl 2v2 and Duel 1v1, while diving into six immersive and tactical environments including three brand new maps. Last but not least, Closed Beta players will have the chance to try out Faction War for the first time.  Faction War 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.

Ubisoft and Twitch announced a collaboration on “War of the Factions”, a limited-time, cross-platform event tied to the upcoming For Honor beta.

During the beta event, popular Twitch streamers along with selected community members and For Honor fans, will pledge their swords to one of the three For Honor Factions – the Knights, Samurai or Vikings. As Generals, these streamers will lead their armies of players to battle on their respective Twitch channels.

In addition to the War of the Factions event, For Honor will be part of an upcoming Twitch Prime promotion, where all Twitch Prime members can get an exclusive For Honor Twitch Prime bundle. This bundle will include a 10-day Champion Status that gives players XP boosts that can be shared amongst friends, more XP from crafting, additional end-match loot, plus the “United Factions Emblem” that can be used to customize their character. The For Honor Twitch Prime bundle is only and will be available in-game when For Honor launches on February 14, 2017.

Ubisoft has released SCARS, an interactive website that allows players to discover the stories of For Honor warriors and get rewarded with a Closed Beta code by completing the experience.

In SCARS, For Honor’s new digital experience, 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. In order to honour their Heroes, participants are invited to select and customise the weapon that best represents their warrior souls. Choosing the Sword, the Axe or the Nodachi, players are able to customise three elements of the weapon, with over 192 combinations possible. Once armed, players can join the unending cycle of war and obtain their Closed Beta code.

Those still waiting to pledge their sword can sign up to have a chance to participate in the closed beta at the offical website.
