For Honor is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC but from September 15 at 6 a.m. PT through September 18 at 5 p.m. PT, players from all over the world can join a cruel and bloody battlefield to measure their skills with the steel of their blades. Those still waiting to pledge their sword can sign up to have a chance to participate in the closed alpha at http://www.forhonorgame.com.
The closed alpha will test a work-in-progress slice of the multiplayer content with a limited number of players in order to generate feedback and assess for stability. During this test, players will get their 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 Hero is equipped with a unique set of skills, weapons, armor and fighting styles, as well as a wide library of customization options.
The closed alpha will also give players a first look at the progression system as they unlock new abilities, new weapons and armor, as well as new visual customization possibilities following their fight on the battlefield.
Meet the Berserker of the Viking faction. This hero, along with five others, will be playable in the upcoming alpha.
Previously thought to have vanished, the Vikings have returned to plunder, take new lands, and reclaim their ancient homeland in the north.
Meet the Orochi of the Samurai faction. This hero, along with five others, will be playable in the upcoming alpha.
History has not been kind to the Samurai. After losing their homeland to sea and fire, the nomadic warriors have ceased their wandering and have rebuilt themselves a new nation under a mighty Emperor.
Meet the Conqueror of the Viking faction. This hero, along with five others, will be playable in the upcoming alpha.
Scattered for centuries, the Knights have begun at last to gather again under a single banner: that of the Iron Legion.
Three out of the five multiplayer modes will be available for this test, including Duel (a 1v1 mode), Brawl (a 2v2 mode) and Dominion (a 4v4 mode). Each mode has different maps allowing fans to develop their tactical skills by using the environments to their advantage.
For Honor will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC onFebruary 14, 2017.
