Back in July, dedicated servers were included in Ubisoft’s development roadmap for their online fighting title, For Honor, and the time has finally come.
The development team went to the game’s subreddit to announce the test dates, and invite everyone to join in on the 4-day long stress test. The studio already performed “hundreds of hours of testing internally and externally,” but it’s always different when these servers are put to the test in public. Content will be limited during the 4-day test period, since players will only get to play “Duel, Dominion and Tribute game modes in PvP only.” Not only that, Ubisoft set up a special 4-day long rewards program, where participants in the tests will get special and exclusive rewards.
- Preload: December 13th @ 13:00 UTC (8:00 EST)
- Test Start: December 14th @ 13:00 UTC (8:00 EST)
- Test End: December 18th @ 01:00 UTC (December 17th 20:00 EST)
Q: WHAT CONTENT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR TESTING?
As the sole objective of this Open Test is testing the new Dedicated Servers architecture, the content provided is aimed to assess its overall stability and possible impacts on the players match experience. In this context, you will be limited to Duel, Dominion and Tribute game modes in PvP only. All Heroes will be available for just 1 Steel each, don’t miss your chance to practice new heroes! The same customization that is available in the main game will be available in the Open Test.
Q: ARE THERE ANY REWARDS FOR PLAYING THE OPEN TEST?
