For Honor open beta preload and start time

The wait for the For Honor open beta is nearly over. Tomorrow, February 9th, at 2pm GMT the For Honor open beta will go live on consoles and PC for all those who want to take part. The beta will end at 10pm GMT on February 12th.

Thanks to Ubisoft you can get a head start by preloading the For Honor open beta now. The download is around 27GB so it’s well worth getting that down before the open beta goes live.

The For Honor beta will include the new Elimination mode, a best of five rounds four-versus-four match with no respawns. Elimination joins three additional modes playable in the open beta including Dominion, Brawl and Duel, and nine playable Heroes. At launch, For Honor will feature twelve playable Heroes and five different multiplayer modes and a Story mode.

The War of the Factions will continue into the open beta, giving more players a chance to fight for one of the three Factions – Knights, Samurai and Vikings. Following the closed beta, the Vikings led the War of the Factions, which pulled data from the performance of players across all three platforms. Although the Vikings are currently in the lead, Samurai and Knight players have the chance to lead their Faction to victory during the open beta and earn rewards when For Honor launches on February 14th, 2017.
