UPDATE: An OPEN BETA is coming up this weekend! (Likely start early morning 10th of Feb)
The BETA tests for upcoming Ubisoft hack’n’slash For Honor is about to begin and this ones got a pretty cool way to get yourself an access code so you can join in the fun!
To get your access code you’ll have to design your own custom weapon via the Scars For Honor Website which involves scrolling your mouse wheel like crazy (using the infinity scroll mouse wheel on the G502 is oh so perfect for this :P) which will take you through a battle scene with your chosen faction warrior – you can pick Samurai, Knight or Viking right at the beginning.
As the fight continues and your hero defends the mighty blows scars will appear on your weapon – CLICK THE GOLD MARKER BESIDE THESE!
Once you hit the right scar you’ll be treated to a sweet video about your chosen warrior then be taken to a screen in which you get to design your own weapon, at this point you can switch between sword, katana and axe (even if you’ve just done one warriors path) and when you find the one you like you can tweak the blade, grip and guard to make it your own – once completed you’ll be asked to sign into your Ubisoft account and given a BETA access game code \o/
The For Honor BETA test is set to end on the 30th January (likely 31st in NZ), so get in quick!
We’ve jumped in with our own GTX 1050 Gaming PC to see what this one’s like and it’s a tonne of fun, below is gameplay with FPS details and settings used while we battle fight to keep our castle!
