On February 9th players across all platforms will be able to access the For Honor Beta, the new IP from Ubisoft. I was lucky enough to get my hands on For Honor at PSX 2015 and it was a great experience. Two teams of 4 battle while armies of no playable charaters help you maintain moral. As the battle shifts to one side or another, the losing side will get a boost to take back their honor by trying to build their moral meters up. To build up your meter you must maintain at least two of three points while also taking out the enemies’ armies. This is a very intense game where the moral can shift in a moment. The team I was on was seconds away from losing, however we rallied and won the match. It was one of the most satisfying wins I’ve experienced in gaming.
For Honor launches February 14th and will have a celebrity battle before the beta launch. The battle will put celebrities and streamers against each other to continue the War of Factions and to show off the Elimination Mode. Be sure to check out Ubisoft’s Twitch stream for more details, and for more info keep an eye on Mammoth Gamers and on Twitter @Mammoth_Gamers.
