For Honor closed beta reactions.

So where to begin? I’ve been hype for this game since debut trailer at E3 2015 and my friend gave me a closed beta code which was a mission and a half in of itself to find for uplay because as we all know, uplay is God awful for anyone trying to use it. Anyway, downloaded the beta, took an hour and change on a wired 60 mbps Internet connection. A little over 25gb.

 So the beta opens with the same e3 story trailer showing off the new villain which is apparently female Ares with a forgettable name and some good old forgettable plot monologue. That doesn’t matter to me, I want to play.

And then a tutorial, mandatory one at that. You can’t change the button configuration, nor put subtitles on, nor skip the opening cutscene on each battle which gets wicked annoying the more you get kicked during them. Adversely, my friend which you can follow on his YouTube channel GameBoiz, Broski had a great time, reported few kicks compared to me. I had to go to a wireless connection to even get games in.

Aside from the negatives, there’s potential there. I just can’t recommend buying it day one when the beta has this many problems on balancing and server issues. The game is fun but people running away from a losing battle to ambush you with 3 other opponents is not fun and gets annoying really quick.

 

I’m no longer buying it day one.
