With codes now being sent out to accepted players, the For Honor closed alpha will run from September 15 at 6am PT/9am ET through September 18 at 5pm PT/8pm ET on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Ubisoft has revealed. If you want to participate in future closed alphas, head over to ForHonorGame.com and sign up.

With the closed alpha, you’ll be able to try out a “work-in-progress slice of the multiplayer content,” which includes three of the five multiplayer modes, six of the 12 Heroes, and three maps (Overwatch, River Front, Citadel Gate):

“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. During this test, players will get their chance to embody skilled and deadly elite warriors from the Knight, Viking and Samurai factions. The closed alpha will feature four previously showcased Heroes including the Kensei, Orochi, Warden and Raider, plus two brand-new warriors, Conqueror and Berserker. Each Hero is equipped with a unique set of skills, weapons, armor and fighting styles, as well as a wide library of customization options.”

“Three out of the five multiplayer modes will be available for this test, including Duel (a 1v1 mode), Brawl (a 2v2 mode) and Dominion (a 4v4 mode). Each mode has different maps allowing fans to develop their tactical skills by using the environments to their advantage.”

You’ll also get a look at the progression system as you unlock new abilities, weapons, armor, and visual customization possibilities after battles.

Ubisoft adds that there’s no NDA on the closed alpha, so you’re free to capture and stream your play sessions. If you’re accepted, it also appears as though you can invite up to three of your Uplay friends to join in.

Here’s some trailers highlighting the Heroes in the closed alpha:

According to the PlayStation Store, the For Honor closed alpha is an 11.7GB download.
