I got a chance to try out For Honor’s closed beta and it’s pretty damn good.
For Honor looks like a game that I spend a lot of hours in. I love the combat, customization, and factions that are in the game right now. I feel like the battles are too small, but I had a lot of fun and I’m undefeated right now in 1v1 duels :).
The only 4v4 battles I had a chance to try were against the A.I. Every time I tried to do a 4v4 PVP battle I was either instantly disconnected from the server or was stuck on the menu before the fight along with everyone else. We all ended up quitting because the match would never load up even though we had a full group of 8 people.
What I would like to see from this game on release day or in the near future are bigger maps and more players. It would be a blast to play a 16v16 or even a 8v8 match. I feel like 4v4 is too small, but it’s still incredibly fun and rewarding to me. The customization is great. I made my viking warrior look really cool in just 2 hours of play time, but in just 2 hours I’m already sold on the game.
I love how intense the combat in this game is. It’s a rock,paper, scissor style of combat because you never know what direction your opponent is going to try and attack you from. I love that I can block/attack in three different directions. It’s all skill based so if I lost a round in 1v1 I couldn’t blame anyone, but myself. I would come up with a new strategy in round 2 and win the match.
I’m very impressed with For Honor right now. It’s much better then I thought it would be and for the most part this beta is pretty stable. I can’t do 4v4 matches right now, but I hope that it gets fixed before the beta is over with so I can experience the mayhem of 4v4 pvp.
I have one more invitation that I send out to someone for the closed beta of For Honor. If you’re a PC gamer and want to try the game out hit that follow us button, and drop a comment down below.
