For Honor releases trailers starring three new faction heroes

The Lawbringer, the Nobushi and the Valkyrie enter the arena.


For Honor is kicking off a closed beta next week pitting the game's thre factions against each other for bragging rights and some in-game perks. Ubisoft has released three new videos showing off the heroes fo each faction.

The Knights get the Lawbringer, while the Samurai get the Nobushi. The Vikings claim the Valkyrie. The game will have various hero types, but these the are hybrids, combining abilities from other hero types.

Here are the videos, and accompanying story descriptions.

The Lawbringer;The Lawbringers are the justice in Ashfeld. They enforce the laws and dispense punishment. Their armor is without equal. Their weapon is a grim reminder of the ultimate punishment for lawlessness. They will go wherever they are needed – pray that you are on the right side when they arrive.

The Nobushi: The Nobushi are the defenders of the villages too far from the Imperial City for the army to reach. They are elegant fighters with a curious weapon. They have the lightest armor that allows them to move like the wind but cannot take a lot of damage. But don’t let their appearance fool you, they are one of the most effective fighters the Samurai have.

The Valkyrie: The Valkyries have made a deal with the gods. They will fight and earn glory so that those who can’t will be counted in the halls of Valhalla. They are scouts and trackers who use their spears and shields to deadly effect. They are chosen by the gods -- hope you never encounter one on the battlefield.

The closed beta will run from January 26-29 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can still sign up for a chance to get in.
