'For Honor' (ALL) Closed Beta Issues, Workarounds

by Rainier on Jan. 27, 2017 @ 8:44 a.m. PST

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.

If you are having trouble launching the For Honor PC Beta, try these.

Possible Workaround 1:
- Run Uplay in Admin mode

Possible Workaround 2:
- Disable Anti-Virus software (BitDefender being a main offender here) or add the game and Uplay as an exception in your anti-virus software. (Here's a help page on how to do these things)

Possible Workaround 3:
- If you’re running on an Intel integrated chipset, try forcing the dedicated GPU instead:
- "Under the "manage 3d settings" tab in the nvidia control panel, you should be able to navigate to your game's .exe and specify which GPU to use from there.

Possible Workaround 4:
- Ensure the game is installed on your C: drive

Possible Workaround 5:
- Try launching the game from an entirely new Windows system profile:
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
- Windows 10

Possible Workaround 6:
- Try unplugging your controller/non-essential peripherals then launch the game again. Once this is done you should be able to reconnect your controller. Also temporarily disable any software linked to the controllers.

If the above doesn't resolve the issue can you please submit your logs to support?

Instructions to get the logs:
- Navigate to your Uplay installation directory (default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft Game Launcher\)
- Select folder “logs”
- Submit all contained textfiles to Ubi Customer Support:
