'For Honor' release date, DLC news: Open beta to start on Feb. 9; details of game editions revealed


Ubisoft’s “For Honor” is a highly-anticipated multiplayer action fighting game. It’s slated to be released worldwide on Feb. 14. Excited gamers will get a chance to play the upcoming game ahead of the official release.

In a recent announcement posted on “For Honor’s” official website, it’s stated that players can download the game’s open beta version from Feb. 9 to Feb. 12. Players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft PC will be able to join the battlefield as a Knight, a Samurai, or a Viking.

In the beta, the player can do a trial run with the Elimination mode. It is described as “a best-of-five series of four-on-four matches with no respawns.” Apart from that, three other modes are open for testing, including Dominion, Brawl, and Duel.

Also, gamers who are taking part in the open beta will be able to get War of Factions which will allow them to lead their chosen army to victory. Rewards can then be claimed when the full game rolls out.

Meanwhile, “For Honor” can be bought in three versions: Gold Edition, Deluxe, and Standard. There’s also a Season Pass available. However, the game developer has not disclosed the details for these editions on their online store.

A report from GameRant mentioned that Ubisoft has accidentally revealed the package information. The report posted the leaked images of the package details and its downloadable content.

Based on the photos, players who have purchased the Season Pass will be able to obtain six all-new warriors, and they will also have access to a day one War pack. Included in the pack are three scavenger crates, a sunbeam emote, an exclusive emblem, a 30-day champion status, and additional content which will be revealed later on.

Players who prefer the Gold Edition will get the Season Pass with the Deluxe package, which is equipped with three helmet crests, a special execution smoke effect, the deluxe edition emblem, and a seven-day champion status.
