Ubisoft announced today that all players – including those who do not own the game – can take part in the first Open Test of the new For Honor dedicated servers infrastructure this week from December 14th at 13:00 UK time to December 18th at 01:00 UK time on all available platforms. The Open Test for dedicated servers is the next step in bringing the new online infrastructure to the game in 2018. Participants will receive bonus in-game rewards based on their participation and can also be entered in a raffle to receive exclusive For Honor rewards.
The Open Test will take place on a custom test client fully relying on dedicated servers. Participants will be able to use the full roster of heroes in 1v1 Duel, 4v4 Dominion and 4v4 Tribute modes. Those who are interested in participating can pre-load the test client for free on all available platforms starting December 13th at 13:00 UK time. All in-game rewards earned from participation in the Open Test will be granted to the players’ main game accounts after the event, and will carry over for new players who purchase the main game.
The transition to dedicated servers is an improvement eagerly awaited by fans and a major milestone in Ubisoft’s continued support on For Honor. Since the game’s launch, the development team has made over 30 updates to the game, including the release of six new Heroes, six new maps, new modes, ranked play, additional customisation options and more.
Stéphane Cardin, Senior Producer at Ubisoft, said:
“The team has worked tirelessly on the implementation of dedicated servers, while at the same time reinforcing and improving the current online infrastructure. This has already led to a better online experience for our players. By participating in our Open Test, players will help us deliver the best experience possible at the official launch.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
