Swords? Did somebody say swords?! You bet your steel-loving heart they did. The skilled warrior of legend, Dennis Swords (Josh McDermitt of The Walking Dead), is geared up and ready to announce the epic For Honor Twitch Stream we’ll be hosting on the official Nerdist Twitch channel. Make sure your weapons are at the ready and prepare for battle by watching the video at the top of the page.
The stream (as well as the official closed beta) kicks off tomorrow, January 26, and will conclude on Sunday, January 29. Our own Dan Casey, Jessica Chobot, and Kyle Hill will be playing for the Viking, Samurai, and Knight factions respectively. In addition to your Team Nerdist favorites, we’ll also have a few special guests stopping by for the last two days of the beta. For a rundown of when we will be streaming, check out the official schedule below:
- 1/26: 9am – 12pm (Featuring Dan, Jessica, and Kyle)
- 1/27: 9am – 12pm (Featurig Dan, Jessica, and Kyle)
- 1/28: 12pm – 3pm (Featuring special guests)
- 1/29: 12pm – 3pm (Featuring special guests)
Now that you have all of the details, all that’s left is to choose your class. For the closed beta, players will have three playable heroes per faction to choose from including: the Orochi, Kensei and Nobushi from the Samurai Faction; the Raider, Berserker, and Warlord from the Vikings Faction; and the Conqueror, Warden, and Peacekeeper from the Knights Faction.
After siding with a faction, players will get to try out three of the game’s five modes including: Dominion (4v4), Brawl (2v2) and Duel (1v1). These modes will be playable across six different environments on three new maps. As our main man Dennis Swords mentioned in the video, those participating in the Beta will also get a chance to try out “Faction War”, which Ubisoft has described as a “global, persistent and cross-platform event” for the three factions.
Interested? Head over to official For Honor site to sign up for the closed beta that will be taking place on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and don’t forget to tune in to our stream this week on Twitch.tv/Nerdist!
