As the ultimate clash between Knights, Samurai, and Vikings, the upcoming action game For Honor will engage players in epic conflicts of war and battle, as the game’s open beta will give players early access to the game just before its release, along with some surprise guests a few days before that.

Developer and publisher Ubisoft has announced that an open beta for For Honor will be coming to consoles and PC from February 9th – 12th, 2017, arriving just a few days before the game’s planned release on February 14th, 2017. Coming off the closed beta that just wrapped up on January 30th, the open beta will allow players to engage in the Dominion, Brawl, Duel, and the new Elimination mode, where players engage in a series of best-of-five matches for 4v4 combat, with no response.

The open beta will also continue the game’s War of the Factions feature, which allows players to pledge their allegiance to either the Knights, Vikings, or Samurai faction and claim various rewards, and items that will progress once the full game arrives on February 14.

In addition to the open beta, Ubisoft will also be hosting a special livestream next week with a “squad of celebrity warriors and top streamers” that will show off the game in action, with scheduled guests to include Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead), Jason Momoa (Justice League), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), and MMA fighter Demetrious Johnson. The celebrity stream will take place on the official For Honor Twitch channel on February 7th, 2017 at 2pm PT/5pm ET.

For Honor will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14th, 2017, while the open beta across all platforms will take place from February 9th – 12th.
