Get downloading the For Honor open beta early so you can be ready for Thursday.

Ubisoft has announced that the For Honor open beta is now available to pre-load across, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The beta client size is just below 19GB.

Although the content of the open beta is going to be very similar to what was available in the closed beta, a new mode will be added. It’s called Elimination, and it’s a 4v4, best of five rounds with no respawn.

Dominion, Brawl, and Duel will return, alongside the same nine heroes we had access to in the closed beta. The open beta will be available February 9 through February 12.

To celebrate, Ubisoft released a new 360-degree video that places you inside a raging battle.

It’s all CG, and it features the three factions from the main game – Viking, Samurai, Knights, pitting it against each other on a very foggy battlefield. Just remember to scroll around if you’re watching on PC.

At this stage, it’s unclear if the closed beta client can be used in the open beta after getting an update, or if you’ll be required to download the open beta client separately. We’ll follow up on this detail and update you when we learn more.
