'For Honor' release date, news: Closed beta launches from Jan. 26 to 29; Season Pass details leaked

("For Honor" official website)"For Honor" was only supposed to announce its closed beta, but may have shed details on the upcoming Season Pass.

Ubisoft's hack-and-slash game is going to be released soon, much to the delight of the excited fans. Before it launches next month, the game is holding a closed beta from Jan. 26 to 29.

This information was confirmed on the game's official website, detailing that there will be select players who will get the chance to participate in the first dibs to the title. During the beta testing, gamers have the option to choose which faction to join, whether it will be with the Vikings, Samurais, or the Knights.

The War of the Factions will be made available for the closed beta, and will most likely be the focus during the event. Each player will have to defend their own factions against the other, and doing so allows them to receive rewards after. Extra spoils are expected to be awarded to the winning faction as well.

Like every other beta tests, this aims to check if there are any glitches or technical errors prior to the game's release. Luckily for whoever gets selected, the rewards received in beta will be sent over to the full game during launch. Interested players can try their luck and register here.

It looks like the closed beta wasn't the only thing that Ubisoft announced. Probably due to some mistake while posting information for the beta testing, they may have unintentionally leaked details about "For Honor's" Season Pass on the gold edition pre-order page.

It has been taken down from the website, but eagle-eyed redditors were able to save a screenshot, detailing what's in store. The Season Pass is expected to give a week-early access to six new warriors, a Day 1 War pack that contains sunbeam emote, three scavenger crates, exclusive emblem and 30-day champion status, and more additional content.

Whether it was deliberate or not, it sure has caught the attention of eager players who can't wait to play the game. It sure has fanned further interest in the unreleased title, which is relatively good for Ubisoft.

"For Honor" is set to make its way onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms on Feb. 14.
