Ubisoft introduces three new classes that will be joining the fray in For Honor and we got more info on the upcoming beta that will commence shortly…
Each trailer gave a short summary of what it means to play as each of the new classes that will be joining the For Honor roster.
The Orochi: The Orochi are the Imperial assassins of the Samurai. They roam the battlefield like ghosts, terrorising and slaughtering those unfortunate enough to cross their path. Lightly armoured and trained in the arts of stealth and deception, the Orochi dispatches enemies with a katana. Usually loyal beyond reproach, the Orochi holds the darker samurai secrets of dealing death in myriad ways, from throwing deadly knives to using a poisoned blade.
The Conqueror: Conquerors are ex-prisoners and forced conscripts who have risen to the rank of elite soldier. They are heavily armoured warriors, relying on a defencive style and their massive flails to whittle away at their opponent’s stamina until they fall under the Conqueror’s massive onslaught. Climbing from the lowest rank to this prestigious role in the Knight’s forces. Conquerors have earned the respect of their peers through determination and feats of arms.
The Berserker: Berserkers are chaotic and brutal dual-axe-wielding Vikings. Their savage love of combat strikes fears the hearts of most, friend and foe. The Berserker fights relentlessly, capable of vanquishing foes before they can mount a decent defence. Unconcerned with their personal safety, they care little for their own defence, focusing instead on killing as many enemies as they can.
We also got more info on the upcoming beta. The beta will run from Sept 15th to the 18th! Invitations will be sent today, September 13th. 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 and is not a reflection of the final game quality that will be available at launch. The beta will not be under NDA, which means streaming, sharing, tweeting and talking about the game will be allowed!
For your information, the Orochi are the best…I’m just saying 😉
