If you've been looking to get yourself back into the ages of old and need to swing some steel while most likely wearing some steel and needing it to land on human bone, then Ubisoft's For Honor is probably going to whet that appetite a bit. Recently, there was a closed alpha on PS4 causing those on Xbox One and Windows PC to a bit angry. From 09.15.2016-09.18.2016 you can now do your own bit of fun by signing up at forhonorgame.com and get in on the action.
The closed alpha will test a work-in-progress slice of the multiplayer content with a limited number of players in order to generate feedback and assess for stability. During this test, players will get their chance to embody skilled and deadly elite warriors from the Knight, Viking and Samurai factions. The closed alpha will feature four previously showcased Heroes including the Kensei, Orochi, Warden and Raider, plus two brand-new warriors, Conqueror and Berserker. Each Hero is equipped with a unique set of skills, weapons, armor and fighting styles, as well as a wide library of customization options.
The closed alpha will also give players a first look at the progression system as they unlock new abilities, new weapons and armor, as well as new visual customization possibilities following their fight on the battlefield.

Three out of the five multiplayer modes will be available for this test, including Duel (a 1v1 mode), Brawl (a 2v2 mode) and Dominion (a 4v4 mode). Each mode has different maps allowing fans to develop their tactical skills by using the environments to their advantage."
