Ubisoft's For Honor will finally be getting its closed beta later this month. Beginning on January 26, the beta will continue through until January 29 on all three platforms - PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The signups for access have been ongoing for the past few months and is still available if you haven't yet done so.

During the beta, Ubisoft are pulling a Pokemon Go and pitching the three teams - Viking, Samurai and Knight - against each other. Each player will be asked to pick one - you can however still play as all three - as their favourite and, over the course of the beta, each faction will earn bonuses based on performance. The bonuses will continue through to the main game when it releases on February 14.

Elsewhere, you can still sign up to the beta of Ubisoft's second big game this year, Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Wildlands launches March 7 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and, while the beta's exact date isn't yet announced, will most likely occur sometime around the end of February.
