Some news for those looking for some blood thirsty, old school war action in Ubisoft’s upcoming game For Honor. This looks some seriously intense combat with very interesting ideas behind it. It looks so good I am even willing to forgive the incorrect spelling of the word Honour! And today we found out that the For Honor Beta Is coming in January 2017. But the question posed is, which faction will you choose?
The game has three main classes, each with subclasses below them. Warlords (Vikings), Shugoki (Samurai) and Peacekeepers (Knights) are all going to war. Who are you going to be? Who you are is part of a cross platform metagame that ranks the performance of your chosen faction. Doing well personally or for your team will reward you in special War Assets to help you during the game.
To help you pick as side check out the videos provided below. And sign up for the Beta Here choosing your other faction: game platform! Now that is a war for many gamers out there.
Official details from Ubisoft are down the page, don’t forget to Share this on Social Media so more people can play this in January. Plus leave a Disqus Or Facebook Comment with the faction you are going to choose.
Info: Warlord is a name from an ancient Viking tradition, a name that is earned by only the true leaders in combat, those who are ready to spend their whole life servicing all who need it. Warlords’ shields are as versatile as they are strong and their sword, while simple in design, is sharp and deadly.
Info: Once the guardians of the Samurai, they have become as family. Massive and fierce, their weapon of choice is the kanabo, a huge stick that only they can wield efficiently. The Shugoki might not have the same agility as the other Samurai, but their rock-like resistance and demon-like strength make them an unavoidable force on the battlefield.
Info: Selected from the desperate, the humbled or the devoted, they are sworn to secrecy by unbreakable oaths. Quick and lethal, they fight with a short sword in one hand and a dagger in the other. Peacekeepers are the deadliest duelists of all Assassins, capable of winning a fight before their enemy even knows they are here.
For Honor Beta Official Details
Today, Ubisoft announced that the For Honor Closed Beta will be available in January 2017. Players will be able to step onto the war-torn lands of Ashfeld, Valkenheim and Myre with brand new multiplayer experiences that showcase the age old war between Vikings, Samurai and Knights.
Coinciding with the closed beta, Ubisoft will launch War of the Factions, a pre-launch limited time event that will answer the question: When the mighty Vikings, Samurai and Knights finally collide on the same battlefield…who will reign supreme?
War of the Factions will track all multiplayer activity across all platforms in the closed beta launching January 2017. Rewards will be given to warriors participating in the beta as well as the winning faction.
Players can charge into battle with a cast of 12 unique heroes across the three Factions. Today, Ubisoft showcased two new Heavy heroes, the Samurai Shugoki and the Viking Warlord, and a new Assassin hero, the Knight Peacekeeper, which offer even more depth to the competitive multiplayer experience.
Ubisoft also debuted its brand-new metagame, Faction War, the persistent cross-platform conflict between the Knights, Vikings and Samurai. Players begin by pledging their sword to the faction of their choice. Every multiplayer battle in For Honor impacts the world as players earn War Assets based on their personal performance in matches.
These War Assets can be deployed and spent helping players conquer and defend territories. Every match makes a difference as all players contribute to the glory of their faction during each 10-week competitive multiplayer season. Once the season ends, all For Honor players will receive rewards based on the rank of their faction. At the end of each season the Faction War resets and resumes after an off-season period.
Players will learn why these brave heroes have gone to war with one another in the new campaign trailer that dives deeper into the world of For Honor and Apollyon, the main antagonist of the game, who seeks to incite war amongst the various factions. The new trailer details the motivations of the three factions including the Knights of the Iron Legion, the Warborn Viking clans and the Samurai of the Dawn Empire. Players will unravel the harsh and unforgiving world of For Honor as they play through the thrilling story campaign in single player or online co-op.
