Over at the For Honor subreddit, the development team behind the game have announced that they are now openly testing dedicated servers in For Honor. According to the developers, the team has already done a ton of testing behind closed doors, but the next logical step would be getting in the hands of actual players, and so that’s what they’ll be doing.
Starting tomorrow, a 4 day long, multi-platform stress test will occur, with all the exact time and information found below:
- Preload: December 13th @ 13:00 UTC (8:00 EST)
- Test Start: December 14th @ 13:00 UTC (8:00 EST)
- Test End: December 18th @ 01:00 UTC (December 17th 20:00 EST)
Along with the test, the development team announced that players won’t even need to fully own the game in order to participate. By simply heading over to the PlayStation Store and searching for “For Honor – Open Test” from the top menu, players will be able to download the test – estimated to be about 23 GB – and help out the development team for free. Ubisoft has even decided to give out rewards for helping, and for a bit more information on that, you can check out below or by heading over to the For Honor PTS subreddit:
