For Honor closed beta cutting into the end of January

Vikings vs. knights vs. samurai

Our Alec had a lark when he romped around stabbing knights and samurai as a viking (a viqueen?) in Ubisoft's sword 'em up For Honor [official site] and soon more of us will get a go. Ahead of For Honor's launch on February 14th, Ubi have announced a closed beta test will run from January 26th to the 29th - and you can sign up for a chance to get in. Murders!

Some words from Alec, who was delighted with the burly female vikings:

"I suspect it will be popular, and I think it deserves to be, a little finessing on the controls notwithstanding. I hope the mania for unlocks can be controlled somewhat in order that it stays focused on tight battles, which hopefully will eventually give rise to feinting and psyching out too. I am also very much looking forwards to more wonderfully excessive character models. Viqueens4lyfe."

Oh, and here are Ubi to show off three newly-revealed classes and another of the multiplayer modes:

It will have singleplayer too, mind. A story about something something SWORDS!

Would you play viking, knight, or samurai? How would ninjas fit into this? And can your dad beat up my dad?
