For Honor

I got into the beta and played it for a few hours today. I've having a lot more fun than I expected. This game wasn't on my radar, but I'll probably buy it on release after my time with it today.

I'll see if there's a way for me to invite others into the beta. I don't remember seeing anything like that but I'll look more closely later tonight.

I'm on the PC as 'digitalerich' on UPlay if anyone else is in the beta.

If anyone gets any leads on a way for me to get into the beta for this, please let me know.

Add me to you UPlay friends, I think I might have invites, but I can only grant them to my ppl on my list. I don't want to blow anyone's spot up, but I see a few more CoGers on my Uplay list that are already invited to the beta as well, so there might be more than my 3 invites to go around.

Edit: to be clear, it looks like all invites are for the platform of the host, so my invites will be for the PC version. But if I had to guess, I would say there is close to zero mouse/kb advantage with this game, so controller it up on the PC if you want.

Edit 2: Also have to bathe and put the kid to bed, so I might not get back to your invite for an hour or two, but get me your Uplay name and it'll go out tonight, jpublic.

I would be curious if somebody's got an extra invite. Whiteshadow80 is me on uPlay.

I was in one of the time limited tests a couple months back and only got to play for maybe an hour, but enjoyed what I tried.

I'd say I'd give it a go but I've not launched uplay in months and not sure that it even had an I'd!

It will be Narradisall I'm sure.

This game has my interest but I'm not sure how long it'd hold it for, but then Overwatch works for many.

Sorry, didn't get a chance to get to the PC until today, but I added you.

Should be sent.

For anyone on the fence on this, it sort of reminds me of the old Jedi Knight games, the move sets are pretty basic for each hero (though the variation in how heroes plays is pretty big), so most of the depth comes from choosing when and how to engage with a given hero and how you match up against others. Even with the limited move sets, some hero abilities are pretty tough to pull off or get started, so if gives that whole easy to start, hard to master for each one.

Also, in case this matters, you can play all of the MP modes either fully against AI or as co-op (players vs AI). The only thing you miss out on by never touching PvP is some daily quests that are PvP specific. But there are plenty of PvAI dailies as well.

Also, it seems like Ubi really spread some cash around the Twitch community, lots of sponsored streams going on.
