The For Honor beta is live so if you haven’t downloaded it already, you should remedy that post haste.

You can hop in right now and play your socks off until Sunday – or the crack of dawn on Monday depending on your time zone.

There have been a few changes since the closed beta and if you want a few pointers, we’ve got you covered.

If you can’t play right now because of bothersome things like work or school, you can check out TwoSixNine’s stream, currently being hosted by our fiery-bearded friend Arekkz.

You can watch them both in action right here.

For Honor is a fighting game in the vein of Deadliest Warrior, where vikings, knights, and samurais face-off against one another in duels, or 4v4 multiplayer battles.

The open beta won’t grant access to all five modes, but it offers enough of a taste of the combat that you’ll be able to decide if it’s your cup of tea or not.

For Honor is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 14.
