Ubisofts For Honor is hosting its first closed alpha on Xbox One from September 15 through September 18. Players from all over the world will join a cruel and bloody battlefield to measure their skills with the steel of their blades.

Whats the goal of this closed alpha you ask? Well, it 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 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.
