Ubisoft is going to test its online infrastructure that’s set to launch in 2018 by holding a For Honor free download for its open test, and even people who don’t own the game can join!
The For Honor dedicated servers test will take place today, December 14, at 5 a.m. PST, and will last until December 17, 5 p.m. PST on all available platforms (PS4, Xbox One and PC). Participants will receive bonus in-game rewards for participating, and will also be entered in a raffle to receive exclusive For Honor rewards.
Here’s a link to the For Honor PS4 open test download page, with the client clocking in at 19GB.
The Open Test will take place on a custom test client fully relying on dedicated servers. Participants will be able to use the full roster of heroes in 1v1 Duel, 4v4 Dominion and 4v4 Tribute modes. Those who are interested in participating can pre-load the test client for free on all available platforms starting December 13 at 1:00 am PST. All in-game rewards earned from participation in the Open Test will be granted to the players’ main game accounts after the event, and will carry over for new players who purchase the main game. Full details on the rewards for participating in the Open Test can be found on the For Honor website: www.forhonorgame.com/opentest.
According to Ubisoft, the transition to dedicated servers is an improvement that’s awaited for by fans, and is a “major milestone” in Ubisoft’s continued support of the third-person action game.
